Weekend Recap + This Week's Menu

Monday, August 27, 2018

How was your weekend? Ours, like all weekends, went too fast. We spent a lot of time with friends outside in the beautiful late-summer weather, which automatically makes it a great couple of days in my book. We also did some laundry, meal planning and grocery pickup, errands, and had swim lessons. 

Yesterday was National Dog Day, so I have to include a shout out to my first (and sometimes favorite) child, Layla. She's just the best.

I'd be remiss not to mention the passing of Senator John McCain over the weekend. While I did not always agree with his politics, he was a man of character and I respected him very much. Read a powerful farewell statement from his book here.

And, finally, this week's menu:

Monday - Pesto pasta with broccoli

Tuesday - Stir fry chicken with veggie mix and rice

Wednesday - Burgers, pasta salad, corn on the cob

Thursday - Crockpot chili and cornbread

Friday - Leftovers

Saturday - Out

Sunday - Out or leftovers

Hope your week is off to a good start! 


  1. What a great weekend. The girls seeing the twins is just too darling. I hope you have a great week!

    1. Omgosh, they were so cute! And the girls were obsessed. Hadley kept saying "It's ok, baby. Baby cute!"

  2. You have such a gorgeous family Jen.

  3. Sounds like such a nice weekend! They do go too fast! That pesto broccoli pasta sounds like something I would love!

    1. It was a good one, for sure! I can't believe Labor Day weekend is already here - where did summer go? We had the pesto pasta last night (I switched two of the days!) and it was yummy. Nice thing is, it's good cold for leftovers! :)
