Meal Plan 3/17-3/21

Happy Monday & Happy St. Patricks Day!! I hope everyone has a great start to their week. FOOD… I can't think of a better topic to kick off a new week! 

I'm sure this is a pretty boring topic/post for most people to read but I love typing out what we are having for the week! I can easily go back and see what we have had (& enjoyed) if I am in a cooking rut! Here is our plan for the week… keeping things pretty simple.

Last night we had 3 Ingredient Citrus Onion Pulled Pork Sandwiches (Recipe from Six Sister's Stuff).

Tonight, we are having Croissant French Toast (Recipe from The Pioneer Woman). We will also have bacon and eggs! 

Tuesday: My famous meatballs, rice, and gravy!! I do not have this typed up but if enough people request it, I will type it up!! Here is a picture I took the last time I made them…

Wednesday is our night out! It breaks up our week and gives us some quality time during a busy week. We have been going to Pappasitos for the past few months (only missing 1-2 weeks) and I love it!!

We are heading out of town Thursday night, which means a 4 day work week for me!! We will enjoy meals with our family and friends that we do not get to see very often! Can't think of a more perfect way to get back into reality!

Week(end) Recap

I have a good reason for my blogging absence… I shouldn't say a good reason because it wasn't good but more on that at a later time. Instead, I sit here in denial that my spring break is over! :-( I was so excited this time last week and I can't believe it has already been a week. Instead of being sad that it is over, I am going to focus on how much fun I had!! 

Monday was a me day! After everything that has gone on this year, it was really important that I relaxed this past week. I slept in and went to have a 2 hour massage. It was amazing!! When I got home, I played with the dogs in the backyard for 20 mins. or so. When I came inside, I looked in the mirror (as I was washing my hands) and was so surprised at how burnt I got! Later that night, H got home and we made homemade pizza and cooked it on the BGE. The pizza was really good and will definitely be made many times this spring/summer! Here is a little before and after picture for you..

Tuesday, I went to lunch with a great friend and then met some other friends at a local place for some fresh air and drinks! We sat outside and ended up having to move under an umbrella because yet again I (& all the others) were getting burnt. Clearly, we are not used to this 80 degree weather. *Doesn't look like we will be getting used to it because it is make in the 50's now. gross.

Wednesday was low key! We had dinner with a couple that we had not seen in a really long time. I think I laid in bed the majority or the day and jumped back in bed shortly after we got home from dinner!!

Thursday, I went to lunch with my team!! It was so good to spend time with them and not talk about school stuff or kids! I got a facial later that afternoon and it was amazing!!

Friday, I went to dinner with another great friend.  We tried to get a few different people to take a picture of us at lunch but our selfie skills are better than their picture taking skills!!
I had not shopped since the end of January but we can't help it when we get together!! I didn't go crazy but did get a new pair of jeans and 2 shirts!! 

Chris and I decided we wanted to try a new recipe on the BGE. We made blackened catfish and dirty rice. It was so good!!

On Saturday, Chris and I spent the day together shopping, having lunch, and enjoying each others company. We made it home just before a huge thunderstorm came through. It was so nice to sit on the couch and listen to the storm. I love a good, spring thunderstorm! I am also loving all of the fresh fruit that is in season… I may or may not have eaten lots of these this weekend…

Today has been a day of errands, laundry, making dinner, and getting ready for the week. Meal plan will be posted tomorrow!!

Goodbye spring break, back to reality I go...
