weekly menu:: week 30

it's good to be home.

saturday we went to a concert in the park.  they had a concert with a group called the spazmatics. they do 80's cover music.  and they were so good.  we had fun singing and dancing to songs from our youth.  boy, that makes me sound old.  it was a good time for sure.

i'm happy to be back to menu planning this week.  first off it was hard eating out so much over the last 2 weeks.  i'm really working at healthier eating and making healthy choices at restaurant isn't always easy.  but i survived.

i have been tagging, bookmarking and pinning recipes that i want to try.  so this week there are a few more new recipes than usual.  i hope i don't overwhelm myself.

monday: asian turkey lettuce wraps, chicken shu mai and rice
tuesday:  chicken fajitas, homemade flour tortillas, salsa
wednesday: baked ziti and summer vegetables, salad
thursday: tomato and vegetable soup (i'll share the recipe if i like it), grilled cheese
friday: date night for me and bobby, pizza for the kids
saturday:  rehearsal dinner for my sister's wedding
sunday: salmon, hummus and goat cheese salad

this week
i'll be working on a week in the life.  this will be my 3rd year participating in this project and those scrapbooks are some of my favorites.  it's a lot of work, lots of pictures, documenting and saving items.  but in the end it is such a cool look into what our lives were like.  if you get a chance, check out the link. it's not too late to join in.  i plan on using my iphone camera as well as my dslr.  hoping that makes it a little easier to stay on track.  she also has some downloadable worksheets to take notes.  mine are on a clipboard ready to go.  you can look at my posts on this project from last year here.

i'll be posting the highlights from the pictures i took the previous day.

i will be working on a post about blogging.  a little how to and what i do.  i'm not an expert by any means.  i just wanted to share some of the tips i've learned.  i was hoping to have something this week but i think it will have to wait until next week.  so if you have any questions or things you want to know, please ask so i can address them in the post.  i know there are a few of you that are considering starting your own blog.  please comment here so i have all of the questions in one place.

have a great week!
