Menu Monday!


Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We were SO BUSY! I actually had a baby heart attack Friday because the day just flew by and I realized there was so much yet to accomplish.

Despite that fact, however, we decided to spontaneously drive up to Richmond, VA (about 2 hours away) to spend the day with my sister-in-law, her husband and our little niece. Such a fun, relaxing day!  But that made Sunday all the more crazy since we had a birthday party in the morning (and I had to quickly rustle up something to make!) and then we hosted a potluck dinner that evening with 6 other families.  Such fun! But going out of town on Saturday increased the anxiety level.

Anywho, enough chatter. I’m craving some old favorites this week, so you’ll see quite a few ol’ stand bys pop up.

I also can’t wait to get back to Friday night soup nights. It’s just not cool enough here in NC to rationalize that.

So here’s what we are eating for dinner this week!  For more information on how I menu plan, see my previous blog post!

    These paninis sound so good! I keep looking for uses for the abundance of tomato and pesto coming out of my garden… if only I had some contraption to make paninis with 🙂
