Welcome! Thank you all for the birthday wishes last week, I really appreciated it! Please forgive me if I didn’t get a chance to personally thank you.
The winner of last week’s Heavenly Homemaker’s Guide to Gardening and Preserving ebook was Kristen of Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. Kristen’s Menu Plan Monday post last week included instructions on how to make homemade bagels. That’s something else on my list of things to try one of these days, they looked delicious!
So how’s everyone doing today? I just got home from a bit of a mini road trip with my girlfriend and we had such a glorious time. Well except for the part where she made me stand on a bridge far far above the land for a photo opp. I so wasn’t impressed with that. Have I told you I’m afraid of heights?
Aside for that small moment where I feared for my life, the rest of the trip was great! :) It’s always nice to get away if only for a little while. I mean I love my kids but boy is it nice to carry on a conversation without being interrupted. We went to an amazing Mexican restaurant. I had a yummy tostada with yam fries and for dessert some coconut lime meringue pie. Yep, I had to be rolled out of there.
Now I’m sitting here trying to come up with a menu for this week. Nothing is jumping out at me. Strange how some weeks it’s so easy to select recipes for the week and other times it can be so difficult. Maybe the trick is to do up my menu when I’m really really hungry because that way everything will be sure to appeal to me :) Right now though I’m still full from the weekend!
MPM Tip: I know many of you already do this but if you are featuring a recipe or recipe links in your MPM post be sure to include that in your Mr. Linky info to encourage people to visit your site.
So here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
Tuesday: Pasta and Zucchini
Wednesday: Wienie and Smore Roast as part of our July 1st celebrations!
Thursday: Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken (I’ll be using a whole chicken) served with perogies and salad
Saturday: Grilled Honey Garlic Pork Tenderloin served with baked potatoes and veggies
Simple Supper Sunday
