Well I hope all you Mothers out there had a great Mothers Day, and I hope that you got to spend some time with your own Mom as well!
I had a great Mothers Day! My hubby knows how to spoil me with treats, which is nice on a special day like Mothers Day. We don’t treat ourselves much throughout the year, so on special days like Birthdays, Holidays and Mother/Father Days we go a little nuts. Saturday night he gave me chips and Helluva Good French Onion Dip with Bud Light Lime Mojitos! Sunday morning it was homemade waffles with homemade strawberry sauce and ice cream! He also bought be a tray of Nanaimo bars from M&M Meat Shops (they have the best ones!), so I enjoyed one of those with my afternoon tea. This beauty was also wrapped up, and waiting on the table for me:
So this weeks’ meal plan is very exciting, as I have a new toy to try out! I cannot wait to use it! Four out of five dinners this week will be made in it!
Here is what we are eating this week:
Monday – Ham and red onion pizza with BLT salad. I would really like to use my new pot tonight, but I have pizza dough in the fridge that needs to me used up
Tuesday – Risotto with Pancetta, zucchini, and Parmesan with pork kabob and salad. What better way to use a Le Creuset, than to start out with a Le Creuset recipe! I will leave out the basil, because I don’t like fresh basil.
Wednesday – Chicken tortilla soup
Thursday – Baked Macaroni and cheese with sweet and sour meatballs
Friday – Veg Head 3 bean chili
I am also making up the mason jar salads again tonight. They turned out so well last week, even the one on Friday that my husband had was still fresh and crunchy! It really is amazing how well they keep, when you layer they properly.
And as usual, I will be linking up over at Org Junkie! Stop by and check out some other great menus!
