Menu Plan Monday June 24, 2013

Last week was a blur!  We spent the week at a Christian teen camp with over 600 teenagers!!  I came back excited, refreshed, and EXHAUSTED!!!!

I still haven't recovered, but no time for that.  This week is laundry, laundry,  LAUNDRY, and repacking to head to WV to celebrate the Fourth of July and three special little girls' birthdays.  Oh, and it's the Greer Baptist Camp Meeting every night at 7:30.  Just another busy week on the calendar.

Is it just me,  or is this summer flying by???

On to this week's menu plan.  Hubby went to the store Saturday and bought a LOT of chicken,  so that is what we'll be eating........ ALL WEEK!

MONDAY - Baked chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, rolls

TUESDAY - Chicken parmesan, garlic bread

WEDNESDAY - Sweet Brown BBQ Lime chicken sandwiches,  french fries, peaches

THURDAY - Chicken Giardino                         

FRIDAY - Baked Teriyaki chicken, rice

SATURDAY - Grilled chicken, roasted potatoes, green beans

SUNDAY - Crock pot chicken sweet potatoes

Our oldest turned 15 this week......  

What happened?  

Where has the time gone?  

When did my 8 lb baby boy that couldn't talk turn into a young man that argues about EVERYTHING?   

While he is a helpful and mostly responsible young man,  we are starting to have the "teenage attitude"  inserted into most of our conversations;  you know,  the sighing, the huffing, and rolling of eyes.   Evidently, I was born yesterday and I don't have a clue about life.  

It's all good though.  I've been expecting it.  Actually,  I'm quite fortunate it didn't happen earlier. The down side is that while it took my oldest a little longer to hit this stage,  his 13 year old brother slide right into it       :(        

The good news:  I realize it could be so much worse!! 

The bad news:  I have 4 more to go through this teen phase!!!

Here he is, doing one of the things he does very well,  entertaining baby brother. He really is a good kid.  I considered myself blessed to be called his mom!!

Menu Plan Monday June 10, 2013

My poor neglected blog :(  The only posts I seem to get  finished are my menu plans.  I have started others,  but always seem to get interrupted.

It has been so crazy at our house the past month and it doesn't appear to be slowing down.  This week our oldest is at football camp, so that's one less mouth to feed!!  Well, at least until he gets home at 9:30 each night.

Here's the plan for this week:

MONDAY - BBQ chicken, fried potatoes, peas

TUESDAY - Grilled pork tenderloin (I didn't get to this last week), grilled sweet potatoes, green beans

WEDNESDAY - homemade pizza

THURSDAY - baked chicken fajitas, rice

FRIDAY - grilled chicken and veggies

SATURDAY - chicken casserole, mashed potatoes, corn, rolls

SUNDAY - crock pot lasagna

Menu Plan Monday June 3, 2013

Well, last's week menu was a total BUST!!!  Since the kiddos were all gone to Grandma's house,  we ate out almost every night!!!  It was like dating all over again.  Is it wrong that I completely and totally enjoyed every minute of it?  Considering hubby and I don't get out much by ourselves,  I didn't feel too guilty about it!!

This week is just as crazy.  I'm in West Virginia Monday through Wednesday.  I will NOT be cooking on Wednesday,  that 8 hour drive with 6 kids just does something to a person.  So,  here's the plan:

MONDAY - Honestly,  I don't know what Grandma has planned :) She's not here to ask at the moment :)

TUESDAY - Cookout at my dad's house with my brother and sister: Hamburgers, hot dogs, mac n cheese, pasta salad, chips, fruit salad

WEDNESDAY - Papa John's pizza

THURSDAY - Grilled chicken, grilled sweet potatoes,  green beans  

FRIDAY - Spaghetti and meatballs

SATURDAY - Grilled BBQ pork tenderloin, roasted potatoes, glazed carrots

SUNDAY - Crock Pot  Chicken, Mashed potatoes, peas, corn, rolls

As usual,  I'm linking up to Menu Plan Monday at Organizing Junkie.  Head on over and get some more menu ideas.  

Have a great week!!
