2013 Week 52

Baby is here!

Everyone is healthy and so happy that baby C have finally arrived.
Which means very little cooking for me this week.
But, it seems the other people in the house still want to eat?!?!
So, there are still dinners to be planned.

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Chili and cornbread.
Monday - Veggie Lasagna made by a dear friend.
Tuesday - Something super easy, maybe homemade pizza (in a Christmas tree shape).
Wednesday - Merry Christmas! We're having prime rib, mashed potatoes, salads and greens, with cheesecake for dessert.
Thursday - Leftovers.
Friday - Kitchen sink quesadillas.
Saturday - Take out or dinner at my sister's on my dad's last night.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

2013 Week 51

H's preschool class makes ornaments this time of year and then they
have a "field trip" and walk 2 blocks to the town tree to hang their masterpieces.
I love the colors.

No baby still.
Just waiting.

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Homemade veggie chili with all the toppings.
Monday - Black bean tostadas with cilantro sauce, yum!
Tuesday - Veggie stuffed shells.  I usually do a spinach/ricotta combo.
Wednesday - Baked fish, green veggies, and an orzo salad.
Thursday - Last day of school for the kids, maybe a snowman celebration dinner.  Although, the best snowman meal I can think of now is snowman pancakes!  
Friday - Creamy spaghetti with salad and garlic bread.
Saturday - Pizza at home.

Send good labor thoughts!

Wednesday - Sweet potato and black bean enchiladas.  
Thursday - Broncos on Thursday night football, we're having homemade mac and cheese and a big salad.
Friday - The kids will be at PNO, so Scott and I are going out to dinner on our own.
Saturday - Homemade pizza, or dinner out!

2013 Week 49

Our elf arrived this morning! 
I can't believe it's already December
and along with a new baby coming
the month is filled with the usual busy holiday events.
Here's to hoping we can keep up!

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Leftovers, we have a ton to use up still!
Monday - Stir fry, using up veggies on hand, with rice.
Tuesday - Some sort of noodle dish, either spaghetti or something creamy with veggies.
Wednesday - Chili and cornbread.
Thursday - Breakfast for dinner.  Maybe eggs, pancakes, and smoothies.  Easy and yummy.
Friday - H's holiday dance show, so an easy crockpot soup will be simmering at home for us.
Saturday - Pizza after the preschool holiday party.
