My husband and I spent the day today with friends at the Patriots game. It was a beautiful fall day. However, looks can be deceiving. That “fall” sun was rather strong and we all got sunburned. Despite my usual spf 30 face moisturizer, I still got a little toasted. Note to all…keep wearing that sunscreen!
This week is busy with evening events and a visit from Grandma and Grandpa Florida, as the kids refer to them. I’ll also be heading to the new Springboard Blogging Conference over the weekend so I’m trying to get lunch and dinner prepped for my time away.
|Parents Magazine Tuscan Vegetable Stew|
This is our menu plan for the week ahead. Share your link in the comments below if you have a meal plan, or just write it in the comments.
Monday~ Chili and cornbread
Tuesday~ Tuscan Vegetable Stew. Found this slow cooker in Parents Magazine. I do need to soak the beans overnight so I’ll go back to the chalkboard and make a note for Monday night. Since this is a meatless (yes, honey) dinner, I’ll grab a nice loaf of bakery bread to go on the side.
Wednesday~ In-laws arrive in the evening so dinner will be in two shifts. I’m going to try reheating our chicken nuggets made last week, along with Alexia sweet potato fries.
Thursday~ Salmon, roasted asparagus and whole wheat couscous.
Friday~ Daddy is going to make pepperoni pizza. Or not. 🙂
