Menu plan Monday

30 Aug

Monday- chicken and pepper Nakano with white/brown rice and Hawaiian rolls
Tuesday – sweet bean burritos and chicken taquitos
Wednesday – grilled bruschetta chicken with broccoli and herb & butter rice
Thursday – flank steak with sweet potato fries
Friday – turkey burgers
Saturday – cranberry chicken with roasted red potatoes and spinach

Sadly, leftovers have mostly become a thing of the past. Therefore, I have begun planning big, and then when plans change, I always have something in my back pocket.

My first baby turns 11 years old today.

Oh how the time has flown by.  Yet, every once in awhile when I look hard at her, I can still see her little 2 year old cherub chubby cheeks smiling back at me.  SIGH

Here is the “dedication page” we submitted for her last year book at the elementary school.

Happy Birthday, Abigail Loraine!

What?  Pictures from Oklahoma?  I know, it’s hard to contain your excitement.  As soon as the girls were out of school on their last day, we were loading up a borrowed RV and trekking to Oklahoma to visit with the Markmiller’s.  We had a wonderful time with them and can’t wait to get back again.

Here are some pictures from our trip.
