dinner this week...

I did meal plan this past week…but I didn't follow through with each meal like I had originally planned.  Laziness/illness toward the end of the week changed our plans.

I did make Mix and Match Mama's BBQ Joes (pictured above) and they were SO good!  I made them earlier this week and actually had one again tonight.  This will definitely be made again.  Geoff and I ate them on the garlic Texas Toast…but the kids ate them on just regular buns…which was fine by me because everyone ate what was put on their plate!

We also had just regular spaghetti and meat sauce this week.  We had that 2 nights.  ;)  So cooking did end up being pretty light this week.

Up this week:

-PW's Pot Roast and Creamy Mashed Potatoes (and I may make some homemade bread in my bread maker too!)

-Mix and Match Mama's Ranch Chicken and Roasted Red Potatoes  (we were supposed to make this week, but didn't)

-I made beef stew last month and froze half…so I may thaw that and make some cornbread one evening.

-Lasagna.  We may not eat this this week, but I already have most of the stuff to make it and do not want it to go bad... so I will definitely make this week in 2- 8x8 pans and freeze for a later date.

Snow Days 2015

We've had snow a few times this week.  Monday we got freezing rain and ice….enough for school to be cancelled.  But the first day we got snow was Wednesday.  I was at work and Parker was at school….but the big beautiful flakes fell and Geoff took Grace and Nolan out to enjoy for a bit.  

These next 4 pictures are pretty funny.  Grace made a good-sized snowball….

…and threw it at Nolan….

….and he did NOT like it!

The snow was beautiful while it fell on Wednesday…but by the afternoon the sun had come out and melted away.

Friday.  More snow.  And accumulation!  I was home this day, but sick.  Grace came down with strep on Thursday.  I was already not feeling well on this day, but thought I'd just power through.  Well- Friday I woke up and was out of it.  So I went to the doctor and they gave me antibiotics for strep, as well…and thankfully woke up this morning feeling much better.  

So Geoff took them out to play.  He said they spent about 15 minutes getting everyone dressed…and then lasted less than 5 minutes!  Isn't that how it goes?

Then this morning they decided to give it one more try.  They did last a bit longer today.  ;)

These dinosaur boots!!!

Grace definitely has more pictures in this post that the other 2…I guess it's the way it turned out…but she had too many good ones not to post.
