First and foremost to the week is my menu. If nothing else gets done, at least I have an idea of what we'll eat!!
Breakfasts: cereal/oatmeal, raspberry parfaits w/bagels, peanut butter toast, blueberry greek yogurt pancakes
Lunches: leftovers, tuna salad pita sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, spicy Thai noodles
Beef with Snow peas & rice
Turkey spaghetti w/salad
There's more Meal Plan Monday at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
Let me do a quick review of some of our meals from last week.
- New to us was the Minestrone Soup. This was a light version. Neither of us has ever had a real minestrone soup so I don't know how this compares, but we really liked it. Let me say that it doesn't blow other soups out of the water or anything, but it was definitely tasty!
- Last night we tried the Maple Mustard Chicken Thighs. Because we went for a long walk yesterday, the chicken didn't get to marinade as long as Holly suggested. However, they were really fabulous anyway. I know I'll be making that marinade again!
- We had grilled shrimp the other night and it was GOOD!! This is the one I REALLY wanted to share with you! I didn't have a plan for the shrimp but I knew I wanted a simple,light marinade on the shrimp before I had Pat throw them on the grill. I looked around at a few marinade recipes before deciding to just make my own. I used bottled lime juice, olive oil, 2 garlic cloves (grated), and a sprinkling of chipotle powder. That was it. I let the shrimp sit in the marinade for an hour or so before they were thrown on the grill (about 2-3 minutes each side.) We have a basket thing that we cooked them in, but I would have used skewers had we not had the basket. So yummy!
Anyway, I've still got so much more I want to cover with y'all but that may have to wait for another blog post. Instead, let me share that I am finally getting back on the ball and actually re-listed something in the shop. Exciting huh!?

Be prepared that I might actually get another post up today. . .or I might wait for tomorrow to share more news with you. I can't decide. I still have loads of photos to edit and descriptions to write as well as some tasks on the craft desk plus the grocery shopping and whatnot. Goodness, now my head is spinning with all that I've got to do.
Do Monday's make you feel this way too?
I guess I better get to it!
