2017 Week 5

It was a fun week with my little guy.
 We did all the things,
playing inside and out,
art, jumping, gymnastics, music class, library.
He was pooped, and me too!

Now our little girl is a Daisy and selling cookies for the first time,
so we really need a dinner plan so that we don't eat all the cookies!!

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Take out sushi, yum!
Monday - Butternut mac and cheese with a roasted veg and fruit.
Tuesday - Easy kitchen sink quesadillas.
Wednesday - Parmesan risotto with roasted shrimp and veg.
Thursday - Conferences tonight. So I'm making dinner in the slow cooker. Chili with all the options and fruit. And with these fun desserts for Groundhog Day.
Friday - Homemade pizza night.
Saturday - Family birthday party, with dinner, yay!

2017 Week 2

The kids were back to school for a short 3 days this week
before we had our first snow day of the season.
The kids loved it.
We usually stay home on snow days, but C has a music class that wasn't cancelled,
so out and about we went!
Music, library, and swimming,
made for a great snow day. 

This week the kids have Friday off 
and I have to register my baby for preschool!!! 
How in the world is he old enough for that??

Sunday - Roasted salmon with brussels, mashed potatoes, and fruit.
Monday - Creamy tortellini with sweet potato and spinach, fruit and a green salad.
Tuesday - Loaded roasted veg tostadas, spanish rice, and fruit.
Wednesday - Lime shrimp dragon noodles, with a cucumber salad and fruit.
Thursday - Tortilla soup in the slow cooker with all the toppings. 
Friday - Homemade pizza.
Saturday - Trying Blue Apron tonight!

2017 Week 1

 We had such a fun New Year's Eve,
ringing it in with great friends.
The kids were troopers and partied until midnight!
Then we got together with our same friends and
ran a 5k in the morning.
Even the kids hoofed it, with our big guy setting his own PR!
Then brunch, of course.
The day ended watching the Broncos finally win a game, whoop whoop!
It was a very fun Christmas break for the kids and now they are headed back to school.

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Chili at a friend's house for the game.
Monday - Dinner out for me, dad's on duty for home.
Tuesday - Hoppin' Johns, finally. If we eat it in the first week, it's still good luck for the year, right? Served with sauteed collard greens and cornbread.
Wednesday - Spaghetti with meatballs and zucchini noodles.
Thursday - Shrimp fajitas with guac, salsa and rice and beans.
Friday - Homemade pizza night.
Saturday - Leftovers
