Menu Planning Monday

Well, Ben's parents are safely on the road on their way to see some friends in Vandalia and then up to Chi-town (okay, really McHenry) to see Joyce's life time friend, Aunt Mary. We had a really wonderful visit. But I will not be talked into going to the top of the arch any time soon. It wasn't so much the height or the ride, but the tiny egg shaped styrofoam car. Yeah, that's kinda what got me. But it was really fun at the top.

We did CVS yesterday. So fun! Joyce wanted to go this week and see how it worked. It was a good trip, but I'll save the description for another post.

It's a pretty sunny day today, so we might try to head out to Defiance and go to Boonesfield village, but we might stay closer to home and do something fun around here. Then we'll do some things around home. There are so many pictures that need to get hung! And the christmas decorations to take down, too. And so much Wii playing that Ben needs to finish before work on Wed.

Tomorrow is a Holy Day of Obligation, so we'll be going to church this evening. We actually didn't go yesterday, so I'm splitting the difference and going today for yesterday and tomorrow. Yes, I know that doesn't really work, and I should be going to confession instead. ;)

Here's the menu for this week:

B: Oatmeal
L: Leftovers
D: Appetizer Buffet

B: Oatmeal
L: Chicken Salad
D: Baked Potato Bar

B: Bagels
L: Bean soup for Ben, Noodles and Sauce for me
D: Shepherd's Pie

B: Bagels
L: Bean soup for Ben, Leftover Shepherd's Pie for me
D: Ham and Cheese Omelets

B: Oatmeal
L: Shepherd's Pie (If there's not enough, Ben can have it, and I'll have grilled cheese)
D: Pizza Night!

B: Cereal
L: Leftover Pizza
D: Omaha Steaks, baked beans, corn bread (They didn't even get thawed last week. There were just a lot of leftovers.)

Baking for the week will probably just be a loaf of bread or dinner rolls, and possibly, bagels.

OK. So now I'm starving for Oatmeal. :) Have a happy New Year.

PS Brian and I missed church yesterday (Sunday), so we thought we'd miss the New Year's service too. *shake head* Not good. Not good. :)

Wow, I never really thought oatmeal would be the kind of thing that really sounds so appetizing you crave it. Hope you got some!
