Everyday Life and Menu Plan (3.13.17)

Welp, last week was quite meh around here - just weekdays filled with the usual and the weekend being shot with a sick kid. I think I jinxed myself when I told a friend at the Y that the only ones who've been dealing with winter colds around our house are myself and my son. Although I suppose this still holds true, since my daughter decided to change things up with a lovely stomach bug. We're chillin' at home today, but luckily we were able to enjoy the annual Shamrock Shake treat before it all went down.

Daylight saving time is certainly not helping matters. Both kids were totally sound asleep when it was time to get up and that is hardly ever a problem - I had a lovely glimpse into the teen years this morning... Every year I'm reminded of this hilarious Last Week Tonight video. No, it's not because of the farmers!
Here's hoping we get back on track with our sleep schedules this week.

Monday - Pizza
Tuesday - Parmesan Tomato Basil Soup in the Slow Cooker (from Little Spice Jar)
Wednesday - Chicken Shawarma (trying this recipe from the New York Times)
Thursday - Pesto Pasta with Sun Dried Tomato and Roasted Asparagus (a favorite from Damn Delicious)
Friday - Spicy Avocado Enchiladas (going St. Pat's GREEN for our Friday tex-mex with this staple from The Novice Chef)
Saturday - Seven Flavor Beef (a favorite Saturday indulgence, recipe from Wild Ginger)
Sunday - Greek Turkey Meatball Salad (pulling leftover meatballs from the freezer for this tasty salad recipe from The Perfect Pantry)

As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie, and now Beth Fish Reads weekend cooking - be sure to check out all the great weekly food inspiration!


  1. Oooh, Andrea! Several of these recipes look amazing; thank you for sharing! Quick question: do you have any trouble finding the san marzano tomatoes for the Parmesan Tomato Basil Soup? I've never looked for them. Hope you're having a great week!

    1. No, not any trouble - they're usually at my local Safeway! If I can't find them in the canned tomato aisle, I'll look in the designated organic section. Failing that, I'm sure regular whole peeled tomatoes would work :)
