Menu Plan Monday

I've decided that with the craziness that each day brings, I really need to be more careful and diligent in planning for supper. Lately, I have either not cooked at all, or dinner was ready well after Gage went to bed for the night. So I'm going to join the masses, and start posting a menu plan each Monday. They say it takes weeks to make something a habit, so hopefully within a couple of months, I'll be used to menu planning and will actually make what I planned.

Monday- Pork stir fry wraps
Tuesday: Spaghetti squash and pasta sauce
Wednesday:Roast, potatoes, carrots
Thursday: Leftovers/Fend for yourself (FFY)
Friday: Homemade pizza
Saturday: Greek Shepherd's pie
Sunday: Trout

Here's to less stressful mealtimes!

Well...it's been a while. So long in fact that I have a new little one to complain chat about now. Aslyn Nevaeh made her overdue entrance on April 27th and has been a bright spot in our life ever since. Although she is still little, she has a strong personality, and loves to be with her family.

We are just starting to get in a better rhythm, and I'm hoping that we will get lots of fun times in this summer. Starting with today, when we go to see the Canada Day parade in a little bit. Gage is quite excited--especially because now it is July, and he knows his birthday is coming up very soon.

I feel like we need to update our summer bucket list from last year. A lot of things did not get done, as I ended up working most of the summer, so there will be some repeats for this year, plus a few more.

Although I might not always express it, life is good, and I wouldn't trade my little trouble makers for anything.
