Menu Plan Monday

Another snowstorm hit us yesterday!  10 more inches. We enjoyed the day at home. It was a big day...the Daytona 500! Peter is into obsessed with NASCAR right now. Since it's the biggest race of the year we decided to make it fun. We made food that Peter decided on....hamburger sliders, chips & dip and he requested chocolate milk :) For our menu plan this week, I'm keeping it simple. Enjoy your week :)

Monday: Pesto Chicken
Tuesday: Beef Stroganoff
Wednesday: Brewer Burger Sliders
Thursday: Penne Vodka
Friday: Takeout ;)

Every week I link up with other bloggers for menu ideas :)

Another weekend is arriving and so is another snowstorm!
1. The girls went to Nonni & Poppi's for the weekend so we met up with them at Toys R' Us!
2. With Jack sick and Pete gone fishing, I was so thankful my sister Laura came up. She ended up being a HUGE help, including making this race track :)
3. When Pete came home after three days of ice fishing, Laura and I headed to On The Border :)
4.Evidently Jack wanted some eggs the other morning...he could have just asked!!! I didn't even hear him open the fridge and throw the eggs!
5. Just another day with Jack :)
6. Tonight we went to the race car preview show. Yes, this is life with two boys :) It gave me a great opportunity to get a picture of them for their NASCAR themed birthday party invite!

7. This is Jack's new "cheese" face! We got to enjoy dinner at Binga's tonight.

Menu Plan Monday

I have no idea what I want to cook this week. Thank God it's a long weekend! We've had quite the weekend. Pete left on Thursday for an annual ice fishing trip. Friday night at 2am, I got sick. Good times. I rallied because I had to for the kids. Saturday night, Jack got sick. Peter had a minor "incident". Thank god for my sister, sister-in-law & girlfriend who helped me on Saturday night with the kids and also helped by creating lots of laughter. Yesterday I got some much needed "Jennifer" time and got to go to lunch & the movies!

So when I arrived home last night to plan for the week, I had no motivation! I opened the freezer knowing it's stuffed but didn't really know what I wanted to make. So I made the decision as I was staring first at the freezer, then at the pantry. I was just going to wing it. Thursday night we are going up to my Dad & Jan's for dinner. Friday we always do takeout, so that just leaves me three days. I make make Chicken Parm? Maybe pizza? Breakfast for dinner? Who knows....maybe I'll let the kids decide!

I feel like I need some new recipe/meal ideas!!! Please share by a comment below or on my facebook page, I always love to hear what other people are cooking! Who else has weeks like this??!!!

Lola's Gymnastics Meet!

On Sunday we left the house at 6:30am to head to NH to watch Lola compete! It was at a sports complex right over the NH/MA border. We were happy that the weather didn't cause it to get canceled!

Starting her floor routine.
In between her routines, the boys stayed entertained!
Competing on vault!
Her team talking with their coach.
Her next event was bars......
warming up on the beam...
Her final event was the balance beam!

Menu Plan Monday

We survived the blizzard called Nemo! After a fun weekend being stuck inside and then out to Lola's meet(picture on blog facebook page) yesterday, the week came upon me fast this morning! Since Valentine's Day is not a big deal to my husband and I, I thought it would be fun to make it about the kids. I have a few fun little treats for them and we'll go Peter's restuarant pick! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it won't be McDonald's! The week will come to a close with some friends coming over Friday :) Enjoy your week everyone!

Monday: Corn & Cheese Chowder
Tuesday: Baked Ziti
Wednesday: Bacon Cheeseburger Quesadillas
Thursday: Peter's restuarant pick!
Friday: Pizza & movie night!

Blizzard of 2013

We got some snow :) The blizzard they named Nemo set records. It is the most snow since the blizzard of 78! Thirty inches in Westbrook. We made the most of it and had a blast!

Friday morning we woke to snow, the boys were pumped to see the plow!
Jack found these on Friday morning and mid day Peter was wearing them. Good idea I guess? I mean what if today it hits 100 degrees and all the snow melts?! He'll be ready, haha :)
Of course we went out to play!
Grammie, Auntie & Katelyn snowshoed over to join us for lunch, that turned into happy hour :)
I then went with them to help shovel and Lisa, Mike, Ryan & Matt Buotte came over. Impromptu blizzard party!!
These girls got me home :)
Saturday morning we woke and the blizzard was in full swing!
Bela loves a good snow storm!
Every blizzard post needs a snow on tree picture, LOL!
While Pete cleared the driveway, we "helped" with shoveling.
Enjoying some hot cocoa after some outdoor play!
Pete went back out in the afternoon to clean up a bit.
While Brandon was hard at work plowing the streets, Kelli & Ethan came over for some dinner. The boys watching a movie.
We entertained, played, watched movies, drank, ate great food! Nemo we had a so much fun!
