    Week 400 Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    I love round numbers. I kind of feel like the fates gave me weekly menu #400 for my birthday. That was nice of them! It’s my birthday this week, which also means it’s Owen’s since we share the same birthday! It also means that I need to break out the ol’ cake-making skills. Owen has requested a chocolate airplane cake. Wish me luck!

    Week 399 Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    Hi there! I seriously can’t believe it’s time to plan another weekly menu. Time flies when you’re having fun, and in our case “fun” is sitting in the ER for 7 hours on a Saturday to find out Owen broke his arm. Poor little guy, but he’s a trooper, even if he HATES the splint and sling…heaven forbid he gets a cast tomorrow, he’ll really be mad! He broke it after standing on a chair, which, unsurprisingly, tipped over…something I’ve warned him about countless times. My friend Nicole said it’s too bad he doesn’t get “I told you so” and I kind of agree! ;)

    Hi there. I can’t believe it’s time to plan another menu…here we go!

    week 397 weekly dinner menu from @janemaynard including FREE printable meal plan and shopping list

    So, I completely underestimated what an interruption to normal life repiping our house would be this past week. I didn’t cook once. We’re almost back to normal now and I actually am cooking this afternoon, which will be nice! Needless to say, lots of repeats on my menu this week from last. (For those of you in California and Nevada, if you are ever in need of repiping your home, see below for info on the company we used.*)

    MONDAY:
    – Happy Labor Day!
    – Hot dogs & hamburgers on the grill

    TUESDAY:
    – Chicken Caesar Wraps
    – Fresh fruit and carrot sticks

    WEDNESDAY:
    – Homemade pizza night (flavors TBD!)

    THURSDAY:
    – Taco night

    FRIDAY:
    – Leftovers

    SATURDAY:
    – Breakfast for Dinner: Waffles

    SUNDAY:
    – BBQ Chicken on the Grill

    Your turn! Share your menu for the week, pretty please with a cherry on top!

    *Repiping info for California and Nevada folks: Repipe 1 was the company we used and they were fantastic. Their prices are phenomenal, they are super organized and timely, and the customer service has been great. I highly recommend them. The only issue we had was with the crew that patched up our walls. I won’t go into the too much detail, but the biggest issue was that they should have done a much better job putting plastic over our belongings, which ended up being a major headache for me. The company was quick to respond, however, and offered to come out and help clean everything (which I declined in the end and just did it myself). Even with a few hiccups on patch day, I still highly recommend them.

    Week 396 Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    Happy Sunday! As I mentioned on Friday, we have a leak in our house. No one can find it. Not the leak detector. Not the plumber. We know there’s a leak because of the CRAZY LOUD RUSHING WATER NOISE IN OUR WALLS tell us there is. Also, the water meter is spinning. I won’t go into details, but the bottom line is we have to re-pipe the house tomorrow. The bad news…it’s the day before school and we’ll be out a few thousand dollars. The good news…we don’t have a flooded house (yet!) AND we will have beautiful new pipes in our walls. It’s all good.

    Week 394 Menu

    Happy Sunday! Last night I took Cate to her first concert! She beat me by six years, by the way. We saw Sara Bareilles and the show was great. Sara Bareilles is funny, witty, charming and her voice is unreal. Cate said it was “loud” but also admitted that she had fun. Such a cutie. Little Anna is completely jealous and has watched the few little video clips I took of the concert over and over again, singing along to all the words. She’s a cutie, too.

    I’m traveling to Oregon Wednesday through Friday this week to visit the Tillamook farm and cheese factory. I’m SUPER excited. I’ll be gone a couple nights, so Cate helped me plan what they’re going to eat the nights when I’m gone.
