Homemaker Monday {2/17/2014}

Happy Monday...eerrr Wednesday.  This week has been crazy and its only just Wednesday..  Every time I sit down to compose thoughts something has happened...as has been the case today as well.   The weather: On Monday we had another snowstorm.  It dropped a few inches in a very short amount of time.  I ended up going in to pick up L because all the other schools around us let out early in anticipation for the snow.  This week looks like the weather is just going to be all over the place.

 On my reading pile: Blog notes and how-to’s, menu planning, budgeting blogs – LOTS of information to take in!!!!

 On my TV: Monster's University....the kids are sleeping instead of watching.

On the menu for this week:  We’ve been trying to get a better healthy dinner routine down.  I’ve been following the Skinny Moms ‘Supper Club.‘  We pick and choose due to our schedule, picky kids and what I have on hand.  So far we’ve liked what things I have made.  Here is what we are eating this week.

Monday – Leftover Chicken Tortellini Soup

Tuesday – Turkey Burgers

Wednesday – Beef Stroganoff

Thursday – Blackened Salmon & French Country Salad

Friday – Order out...or leftovers

Saturday – Leftovers

Sunday – Unsure yet

 On my to do list: Workout, Fold the three baskets of clothes that I washed on Sunday, Get to the doctor for my sinus issues (a recheck-up) and to go over the CT scan I had a few weeks ago, get some freezer breakfast meals done.

 AddyLou projects for the week:  Birthday Shirts, Bibs and getting rid of my scrap pile, organizing my work space

 What I am cooking: Nothing currently

 Looking around the house: I need to clean the kitchen again, and fold clothes.

 Highlight of the past weekend: My sister had her third, healthy baby!  So excited to meet my newest nephew.  Got to go on a date night.  We ate at Pikks Tavern in Valpo for the first time. It was very good.  I love the little restaurant/bar type of places.  And it was nice to get out and feel like an adult.  I was also able to do a little shopping on Sunday by myself while the kids went sledding with daddy.
