Happy Monday everyone! I’ll be sitting at piano festival for 5 hours today…yikes! My daughter is performing 5 pieces, I sure hope my nerves can take it :)
So as you can see we have a new banner above and another below! A big thank you to Rachel from Home Sweet and Savory who created the one above for us. So pretty! Rachel has a fantastic blog and it is where I found the recipe for Beth’s Baked Chicken which was on my menu last week. It was so good and so easy to make and I especially loved that it was allergy friendly for my son. Thanks Rachel!
This next banner below was designed for me by Kim of Seven Thirty Three. I love how simple and fun it is and of course the colors :) Thanks Kim!
So there you have it, two new banners to use if you’d like. Feel free to choose one of these or any one of the ones found here. I like choices, what can I say. There is something for everyone!
I also want to thank everyone else who contributed banner submissions. I really appreciate it and you never know, I may still pull it out of the vault to use one of these days.
Another recipe I tried this week was the Meat & Potato Pie. It was delicious but I cheated a little bit on the recipe to speed things up by using a store bought crust and canned pre-diced potatoes.
Just before I get into what we’ll be eating this week I wanted to let you know about a blog series that Life as Mom is putting on, along with a few other bloggers, to help you Eat More, Spend Less. Check out this week’s topic all about 5 Top Frugal Meal Plans.
This is a very exciting week for me as both my brother and sister (& baby niece!) will be visiting from Ontario, whoot! This will be their first time visiting our new home in Alberta and I’m excited to show them around and introduce them to our town. Should be fun!
Monday: Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
Tuesday: Italian Sausage and Potato Roast (family favorite!)
Wednesday: Bruschetta Chicken (family favorite!) served with rice and veggies
