Everyday Life and Menu Plan 4.3.16

The weather this week has been LOVELY.  Unfortunately, I had a sick kiddo on my hands and I think I can feel the sinus pressure building.  I'm telling myself that it's just all in my head and hoping it goes away.  The kiddo managed to get sick after the all school music show, and we were thankful to get to see each of the kids sing.  And by today, they were feeling good, so we were able to enjoy the weather with a stroll around a local park.

And we ran into a lady taking her parrot for a walk!  My son and husband took turns holding it and my daughter got to feed it.  Very fun diversion, including the always fun frog, bird and turtle watching.
There are no new recipes on the menu this week, as I cranked out a list quickly this morning so that I could go to the store today instead of my usual on Monday.  Spring break is this week and I DO NOT do a full grocery shopping trip with the kids.  However!  The two new recipes last week were yummy!  I even snapped a pic of the Curried Lentil Soup because it looked almost exactly like the Pinterest image and that never happens.  
I didn't snap a pic of the Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers because they were gone too fast - SO GOOD!  I think I may just pound the chicken breasts out thin instead of cutting them, which would cut down on the prep time.

This week!

As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie and Mommy Run Fast- be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!


  1. Your menu looks awesome- I would make most of these any day of the week! I love that you are also amazed when Pinterest recipes actually work! Too funny!

  2. Satay chicken- yum!! I need to try introducing some new flavors again for our picky 6 yo and hope that she soon realizes what she's missing!
