recipe rave & other tidbits

  • I haven't posted my meal plan lately. We usually do pretty well with sticking to our weekly plan...unless we (um, I) crave mexican. It's all downhill from there. Here is our menu this week:

*Last night we had Blue Eyed Bride's yummy salsa chicken that she posted here. It was so good and so easy! I also was able to get 2 lunches out of it...always makes me happy!
*Tuesday: poppyseed chicken casserole
*Wednesday: taco night! we always get our favorite chips and salsa from a local taco shop. yum!
Thursday: chicken cutlets and gravy, squash, and rice

  • I'm still doing the whole baby-food-making thing. I actually like it...and Grayson likes my cooking! I bought some great containers to store his food in the freezer from Babies R Us. We are officially in business! Our freezer will soon be full of pureed fruits and veggies. Grayson's favorite foods so far are apples, pears, avocado, prunes (yuck), carrots, and butternut squash. He doesn't like sweet potatoes. Doesn't every baby love sweet potatoes??
  • Is anybody watching Dancing with the Stars? I just got hooked last season when the Situation was on it. Now I'm all about Kendra, Kirstie Alley, Hines Ward (Go Dawgs), and Maks. I know, Maks is not a star...but he is pretty to look at:)
  • Today was my first day back in the classroom after spring break. It's not easy being away from my sweet boy after spending all week with him. That's all I have to say about that.
  • On the flipside, 39 1/2 days until summer. May or may not be making a paper chain soon..

Maks.... Yummy! Carsyn pretty much loathes real food but has a hankering for peas.. Yes peas! Grayson is just so adorable-your summer break is going to be wonderful! :)

My cravings for Mexican have been known to ruin my meal planning too. I can't help it! So glad summer break is so close - how wonderful to get to spend the summer with you little guy!

Yay for meal planning! I'm horrible at it. I hate cooking. Ugh!

And now...I think I want Mexican for lunch...
