Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
We had a pretty low-key weekend at home, with mostly nice weather. On Saturday, my husband spent a lot of time working outside on projects – re-seeding the back grass and building a fire pit were his big ones for this weekend. I spent a little time working on my own gardening projects, did a few indoor chores, and ran a couple of quick errands.
Yesterday, my daughter and I spent some time at a playground with friends. The weather was beautiful, and she and I both had a great time catching up with good friends.
The Week Ahead
This week, it’s back to school for my daughter, and back to work – Tuesday and Thursday – for me. It’s going to be a long week for my daughter, because she’s participating in her school’s Missoula Children’s Theater production. Essentially, this traveling theater company spends a week at the school, and the kids who participate practice the show after school every day, then put on performances on Friday evening and Saturday. My in-laws are coming up for the day on Saturday, to attend the play.
My other commitments this week include: having our septic tank pumped, getting my hair cut, grocery shopping, dropping outgrown clothes off at the children’s consignment store, and a visit from the exterminator to check the status of our mouse bait stations. A week full of non-stop excitement, huh?
In keeping with one of my goals for 2017 – find a way to hate meal planning and cooking less – I’m trying a local meals to-go place. A couple of days a week, they offer specials on family dinners. This week we’re trying the ziti with meatballs and sausage, plus salad and bread.
This Week’s Meal Plan
Here’s what’s for dinner at my house this week:
- Monday: Shrimp stir fry w/ peanut sauce and jasmine rice
- Tuesday: Leftovers
- Wednesday: “Mama’s Ziti To Go” from Augie’s To Go
- Thursday: Leftovers
- Friday: Picking up pizza before my daughter’s play
- Saturday: Post-play dinner out with my in-laws
- Sunday: Risotto (from Michael Chiarello’s Casual Cooking) w/ peas and asparagus
