What a week here last week! We worked like mad on a re-do of our son’s room and I’m happy to say we finished Sunday evening. Whew, in the nick of time because we pick him up at the train station today at 12:30 pm.
Stay tuned for some video of the project including Brian’s decision to make a bed frame for a new double bed. This is a big deal folks…other than a few bookshelves and a bench, he’s never made any furniture. And for sure nothing that someone would put their weight on. Hmmm.
I was sure glad I had made a menu, though. Since we had some long days (and a few nights), we would’ve been tempted to go out to eat. But the menu was easy and utilized a slow-cooker, so it ended up very do-able (especially with my newly 14-year-old daughter’s help!).
Other than a birthday dinner tonight, we’re back to a fairly normal week (Amen).
Monday- (birthday girl’s choice) Eggs Benedict, fruit, giant birthday cookie
Tuesday- Slow cooker Mexican Lasagna (new recipe), green salad with spicy vinaigrette, chips and homecanned salsa
Wednesday- Chili, cornbread, vegetables and dip
Thursday- Slow cooked Asian Chicken, stir fry vegetables over baked noodles
Friday- Shrimp & Vegetable pasta (made like this, but with shrimp), green salad
Saturday- Burgers on homemade buns, oven fries, carrots & celery
Sunday- Easter Dinner
