Menu Plan Monday

Whew, what a weekend! It has been busy, and a blast. And we’re pooped. And tomorrow’s Monday, and we have to somehow find energy for the morning! Friday night we went over to our friends’ house to watch the 5th Harry Potter movie. I’d seen the first four movies quite a bit, but have only seen the 5th and 6th ones once, so I enjoyed this one a lot. Saturday we cleaned and ran errands, and I worked on painting our master bathroom. It’s a small room, so it theoretically should be pretty quick to paint, but there are nooks that take time – for me, anyway! We’re doing the top third of the walls a really light blue with kind of gray undertones to it, and then we’ll have white wainscoting up the other two-thirds of the wall. We’re going to put up white crown molding too, so I think it’ll really look nice! We were hoping to do some tiling on the floor today, but I need to do another coat of paint on the walls and still have to paint the ceiling too, so the floors will have to wait.

Anyway, Saturday night we got to have a DATE NIGHT! We had a gift card for our favorite Mexican restaurant, and we went to see X-Men: First Class. It was a fun movie and a fun night! Today we woke Brian up with coffee and his Father’s Day cards. The boys both made him handprint gifts at school, too. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, by the way, including mine (hi Dad – love you)! What did you do for the dads in your lives?

On to food for the week:

Monday: Lasagna wontons with veggies; we’re going to try baking them, and I might sprinkle some mozzarella over them a few minutes before taking them out

Tuesday: Chicken tenders and baked potato wedges – I saw a recipe that said to coat the chicken with mayonnaise and then dredge it in bread crumbs, so I’m going to try that. I’m going to use mayo w/ olive oil in it, and add some seasoning to the bread crumbs.

Wednesday: Leftovers from Monday/Tuesday

Thursday: Chicken stir fry with onion, carrots, and zucchini

Friday: We’re having our friends over for the last two Harry Potter movies, and I think we’re going to do fajitas, with homemade ice cream for dessert.

Have a wonderful week! :)

    You are so smart to plan you meals ahead. I’m always trying to throw something together at the last minute.

      It definitely takes off some stress to do the menu planning, and it helps me try new things! I’m a big advocate for menu planning, although there are plenty of weeks where it’s hard to find the time to do that!

    I LOVE your ideas for the bathroom- can’t wait to see pictures!! And then copy your ideas in about 4-6 months when I might consider having energy to do a project like that.
