Menu Plan (Feb 17-23)

I have had quite a few emails asking how I am doing. MUCH better. Thanks for the concern and the well wishes and the VERY special card that a VERY special friend sent to me. To answer the questions, I had surgery on Wednesday morning, was home Wednesday afternoon. All went well and I am very much on the road to recovery. Thank goodness that my mom was here, on a pre-planned trip that happened to coincide with the surgery. While Jeff and I probably *could* have handled last week alone with Miss Emi, it was so wonderful to have my mom here to step in and help.

Mom and Emi have become fast friends and are so enjoying each other. I does my heart good to watch them playing together and have Emi showing off all her little tricks for my mom. We are thinking by Tuesday I will be strong enough to start getting out and about, so we have all kinds of exciting things planned. A trip to Target. A trip to Best Buy, and one to Costco (finally going to join!). We are also planning a trip to the mall. I tell ya, we lead an exciting life over here!

Mom is here through Saturday, and so I wanted nice dinners but still simple and easy so that I could spend the time with her and not in the kitchen. I also thought I was going to do so much more last week than I did, so some meals are being carried over. So with that ... here is my plan for the week ...

Menu Plan for Week of: February 17-23, 2008

  • Monday: Wheat & Pumpkin Pancakes (or Waffles), honey butter, sausages

  • Thursday: Leftovers (Meatloaf and Pork buffet)

  • Friday: Out to dinner (Mom’s last night here)

  • Saturday: Leftovers/Free Nite (Mom leaves ... cry!)
    • I will probably be bummed that my Mom left, so will probably talk Jeff into taking Miss Emi and me out.
Lastly, don't forget to head on over to Laura's at I'm an Organizing Junkie for more Menu Plan's.

I missed that you'd been ill. I'm glad to hear that things are improving.

Enjoy your mom's visit!

Everything sounds so great!

Have a wonderful week!

And get well soon.

I keep threatening to make meatloaf for the Singer. Somedays, she's not sure if I'm joking or not.
