Only one weekend left until we send our kids off to school. I have to admit I’m looking forward to it, not because I don’t want them around, but because I think they’ll be happy to have some routine that involves other kids, other activities, someone – anyone – other than me. We spent the weekend with family, going to the zoo and bumming around the neighborhood. I also fit in a short photo session with my nieces and nephews and we took a family walk, all 12 of us, down the street and back. I have to say I’m sad that tomorrow is Monday.
Because we had company, we didn’t get to the grocery store, but I did drag my sister-in-law to a few places to pick up what I needed, and I made a stop at Trader Joe’s yesterday on my way home. The menu, with those items, is what follows.
Monday – Blackened salmon, rice and green beans
Tuesday – Baked Italian Meatballs, spaghetti, garlic bread, spring mix salad
Wednesday – The Great Minnesota Get-Together: an all day on-a-stick feast
Thursday – Build-Your-Own Burritos, Spanish rice, refried beans
Friday – Grilled chicken, zucchini tomatoes provolone, pesto cheese bread
Recipes to look for here at Food for My Family this week: The banana cake turned into a rum-infused banana cake. I also need to share the lemon pasta. I’ll get on that. Ooooh, and I need to post my pesto recipe. I love when the basil is ready.
