MPM (because I HAVE to)

Hey there!  How was the weekend?  Ours was, again, the perfect combination of busy and relaxing.  And by ‘perfect combination’ I mean, a little more relaxing than busy.  Obviously.  I even had a chance to squeeze in a nap AND read part of a book.  Not a blog.  Not the newspaper.  Not a magazine.  And not emails.  But an actual, real life, turn the pages, book.  It was de-lightful. 

Last night we capped off our relaxing weekend with a little kite flying action.  And while I didn’t take the time to get my real camera, I did capture these 2 photos of sweet KT.  In case it isn’t evident, she was an extremely enthusiastic observer.

In other, very honest news: I’m tired of making meals and everything involved with that chore.  Including meal planning.  Blah.  I pretty much just want to quit.  But, let’s be real – there are 4 little people that need to eat.  3+ times a day, 7-days-a-week, 365 days a year – I CAN’T QUIT.

So.  I threw together a quick, no-brainer meal plan and will continue doing what I do best…planning, preparing, serving, and cleaning…over and over again. And I WILL do it with a smile and joyful heart because I love them.  And because they need me.  And because they need to eat.  And because I don’t need Child Protective Services knocking at my door.

Moving on.

Here’s what’s for dinner this week:

Monday: Chicken Caesar Wraps

Tuesday: Taco Soup

Wednesday: Cheesy Chicken Crescent Rolls

Thursday: Texas Casserole (carry-over from the last 2 weeks)

Friday: Whole Wheat Sour Cream Pancakes.  Again.

What are YOU eating?  AND what are your go-to meals when you need a little break from the kitchen?

Love that Kaiah True! She is so stinkin' cute!
I am so glad that I have a hubby that cooks and grocery shops as that is one of my least favorite things! Keep up the good work with meal planning, I always love seeing what the Starr's are eating!
