2014 Week 34

Even though I got to spend my week with these cuties,
the first week of school left me feeling a little run down.
Perhaps I'm fighting a cold, but I needed a something warm and spicy to help me out.
Enter this amazing recipe I found for a vegetarian hot and sour soup.
It was exactly what was needed.

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Grilling, getting the best of the summer packed in. Corn on the cob, salmon, greens, yummy.
Monday - Pesto pasta with garden tomatoes and a fruit salad.
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday. Beef, beans, crunchy, soft, and all the toppings.
Wednesday - Homemade mac and cheese with a green veggie on the side.
Thursday - Breakfast for dinner, eggs and waffles.
Friday - Homemade pizza night. We made it through the week, yay!
Saturday - In Steamboat for the weekend, dinner out!

2014 Week 33

We found a little buddy in the yard this week.
The kids took good care of him and then deposited him in the garden to live.
On another note, summer is now coming to a close over here.
I'm sad to say that the kiddos are back in school this week,
so it's back to the grind for us.

BUT, it's also my birthday this week! 
So, we're still having a little fun.

Sunday - Salads; spinach, orzo and garden tomatoes and zuccs. Homemade chicken tenders added for the kiddos.
Monday - Take out pizza and ice cream to celebrate the first day of school
Tuesday - Pesto pasta and grilled chicken, with a fruit salad.
Wednesday - Birthday night! Dinner's up to Scott.
Thursday - Grilled fajita salads or tacos for the youngins. 
Friday - Yay! We made it through the week! Homemade pizza night, I want to try a zucchini and sweet corn pizza.
Saturday - Kitchen sink quesadillas, using up whatever we have in the fridge.

Have a great week!
