What's cooking this week?

Dear El + Em,
Don't be fooled by the loving looks you're giving one another in this photo. Of course you love each other, but this picture perfect moment is not exactly how things are on the regular! My camera roll is full of several "duds" before I get the right shot! A good part of the day is usually spent ripping toys out of each others hands, chasing your sister around and screaming "it's MINE" and sitting or standing on each other. Honestly, either of you could be guilty in any of these scenarios despite the three year age gap. This is what having a sister is all about (or so I'm told), and it sure keeps things interesting. This weekend has certainly been VERY interesting...and of course I wouldn't change a thing! 
XO, Mom
Another brewing ear infection for Little E = a pretty low-key weekend for the rest of us. It's nice and early, the meal plan is set, the list is made and I'm ready to enjoy this sweet little Sunday, especially after I get a little work out of the way. Here's the plan...

Sunday: Grilled Chicken and this crazy, amazing-looking Honeycrisp Kale Salad
Monday: Flatbread Pizza
Thursday: Vegan Corn Chowder and Steak for Hubs (Ha, that seems like an oxymoron)

It seems simple enough! Well, that's the hope. This upcoming week is VERY busy...but as usual, having the meals planned out SHOULD help. Fingers crossed! Have a wonderful Sunday!

What's cooking this week?

I haven't done one of these in FOREVER....haven't done much of anything in forever as far as this place goes. In honor of the fact that I very ambitiously planned a week full of yumminess...I thought this was in order. Also, the girls are painting nicely and I thought I'd take advantage of the next four minutes to myself! 
There's paint on Emmy's let me make this snappy....
Sunday: Grandpa's Marinara and salad
Monday: Hummus Pizza
Tuesday: Crock Pot Black Beans and rice

We'll see if I actually follow this plan. The past two months have been so hectic, I would plan and then make changes along the way. That's normal but week by week, it was all so unpredictable that when planning, I gave up on trying anything new. I guess the good news is that there's still a "plan". If there wasn't, I'd definitely be rotating tacos and hot dogs....which isn't too far off from how we've been living since this school year started! 

For today, we are having a home day. We're still in recovery mode since last week and all of the birthday celebrations. Emmy is fighting a NASTY cough, the girls are still tearing into all of their new toys and I'm running into work for a few a simple marinara will have to do! 

Soooo....there is now paint on Emmy's face....I'm gonna's been fun Blogland! (Is this thing even still on?)
