'Twas the week before Spring Break!
…and we’ve totally got this! Most important news first: Did you catch last nights final episode of Big Little Lies?! I don’t want to give it away, but it was AMAZING! This series was by far my most favorite TV series to date. The entire cast did a wonderful job – the chemistry was remarkable. The final scene was very touching – a bond between girl friends and the support they give, just really hit home. Loved it.
I’m a day late on posting this weeks menu since we were very busy having FUN this past weekend. We had a sitter for Saturday to attend my little man’s Fundraising Gala. What a fun event! The silent auction was really well organized and the entire feel of the event was very relaxed and fun. The bar was amazing and the views were spectacular.
Last night was another big night (two in a row! WOOT WOOT!) – we had some friends over for BBQ dinner that the hubs made in his new sous vide. It turned out really well – and my good friend announced her engagement to her longtime boyfriend!!!! So so so happy for them. Just when I thought the “wedding season” of my life was winding down, (which I was kind of sad about, actually) they came through with this announcement. LOVE IT! Couldn’t be happier for this lovely couple 🙂
This week is the week before spring break – and you know it will be busy. With the kids off of school for 10 days, there is a lot to get done before then and plan! If you don’t have a plan, then you plan to fail!
Menu for this week looks like this:
Monday – Pork sandwiches + leftover beans and coleslaw from last night
Tuesday – Modern Table Meal with fresh mushrooms and broccoli (found this at Target in the Mac n Cheese aisle). It’s also Non-GMO and Gluten Free! Score!
Wednesday – Campbell’s Sauce Starter for oven roasted chicken with roasted root vegetables (probably carrot sticks and sliced bell peppers)
Thursday – Chickpea curry (blogged about this recipe last week, can’t wait to have it again!) with nut-free naan and jasmine rice. The Naan is from Target as well located in the fresh bakery section.
Friday – Edamame, Whole Foods Fish Sticks, Tater Tots (three sheet pans, no clean up).
Saturday – Large pot of soup + salad. I love Kitchen Basics since I can find it everywhere and also get no or low sodium. The control freak that I am, I like to be the one in control of how much salt is going into my soup.
Sunday – Chicken Enchiladas + Spanish rice, carrot cake cupcakes for Chloe’s Easter play date with friends. I’ll post more about the cupcakes later, the accessories are from Sur La Table. although most stores are already sold out of Easter things, I guess I’m just not one to buy Easter things at Valentines Day. Our “buy it early” retail culture in America is exhausting.
That’s all for now! I’m off to get my chores done and make round #2 of school pick-up! Have a great week! Stay tuned for sneak peeks of Easter prep!
