Menu Plan

The wedding this weekend was fabulous! Everything was gorgeous and everything went almost perfectly (we all forgot the groom's ring... but it worked out :)! It was so good to see Sara, Adam, their families, and some old friends from MSU. Sara and Adam will soon be heading back to Colorado, which we hope to visit them there this fall if everything works out ok (though if we're going to do it, we might have to move it up to late summer because we may also be going to Vermont in October... more on that later as details develop...). So anyway, we're back to the grind again. No more traveling for a little while at least. Our next planned overnight trip isn't until August when we spend some time at Kevin's grandparents trailer on the lake. So anyway, here's what I'm thinking for meals this week...

Sunday ~ Happy Mother's Day!! We're driving back from Grand Rapids in the morning/early afternoon. We'll probably head over to my Aunt Jeri's house for a family party... having hamburgers and hot dogs, not sure on the sides...
Meatless Monday ~ huevos rancheros
Tuesday ~ pork chops with raspberry sauce
Wednesday ~ I might try a lebanese meatloaf, roasted potatoes, green beans from the freezer
Thursday ~ leftovers
Friday ~ its my flex day and I'm hoping the weather is nice so Carson and I can play outside and I'm also hoping to do some work in the flower beds outside and transplant some raspberry bushes... I think we'll have chicken fried rice in the crockpot
Saturday ~ our first weekend in what seems like ages that we don't have any plans! Hopefully we'll have great weather and can get a lot accomplished outside... mowing the grass, pruning the orchard, cutting down the crabapple tree in front? I think I'll try chicken chili with pesto

Probably no extras this week since we're hoping to get a LOT done outside in the yard and on the property this week. We've been neglecting many of our spring chores because we just haven't had the time for them with all of our traveling lately. So that will be our focus this week.

I bet it feels good to have a normal week at home. Traveling and seeing friends is fun, but something about coming home when it's all done is even better :) Sounds like the wedding went well and everything got done on time. Can't wait to see pictures!
