I fell in love this weekend. I fell in love with long weekends. They’re lovely. Relaxing and productive all at the same time.
I cooked, baked, cleaned, organized, decorated, ran, worked, played games, watched football and lots of soccer, spent time with my family and great friends…and did not shop at all. Oh, and I still have a full day left! I could get spoiled.
But then I look at my calendar and see a hard slap of reality coming Monday morning with another crazy week ahead. My son has basketball and soccer, I’ve got a full week of work and we just picked up tickets to the US Women’s soccer team match against Ireland. Another full week.
We really wouldn’t know what to do with a week on our calendar without all these activities. Oh, wait. I know…I’d fill it up! I don’t sit well.
After a long weekend of indulging, a meal plan with lots of comfort foods should help the reality of real life that much better. Have a great week!
Monday – Slow cooker chicken from InspiredRD over rice with braised bok choy
Tuesday – Homemade macaroni and cheese with roasted broccoli
Wednesday – Meatloaf with mashed sweet potatoes and garlicyk green beans
Thursday – Mexi bowls with roasted squash and avocado
Friday – Slow cooker chicken gohan stew from La Fuiji Mama (sounds so comforting for the busy week’s end)
Did you make any meals from last week? What did you think? My kids gave the Bean, corn and tortilla salad from Martha Stewart five stars! We’ll be making that again.
