What a rainy, dreary weekend. The Farmer’s Market was rained out so we have quite a few cupcakes that need to find a home. Methinks that my work friends are going to be very happy!
This weekend has been no-stop preparing for our exchange student. She arrives in one week and this momma still has a lot to do! We’re giving our temporary daughter Belle’s room (she volunteered her room so that we would agree to take in the student) so I’m making sleeping quarters for Belle in the laundry/storage room. I know – it sounds crazy but it’s actually a decent space. We offered Belle the couch in the family room but she wanted some privacy. By the time I’m finished she’ll have a bed, nightstand, lamp, clothes storage and possibly a vanity area to get ready if I can find an inexpensive mirror.
I’m sure this will come as no surprise but this week will be a little hectic. Mike is working a couple of second shifts, throw in a dance class, Michael’s evening classes and the rest of the prep work we need to do and we have very little downtime and only a couple of family dinners planned. We did have a family dinner tonight, the first after getting the dishwasher fixed (the dishwasher that has been broken a year) so surprisingly there was little fighting over who was going to do clean up.
Here’s what we’re eating this week:
- Chicken and Stuffing, glazed carrot, salad, bread, assorted cupcakes
- Spaghetti & Meatballs, strawberry salad, corn, garlic bread
- Beer bread and potato soup
- White Chicken Chili and homemade bread
- Fend for yourself x2
- Dinner out
I’m really looking forward to the potato soup and beer bread. With the days getting colder I find myself looking forward to some warm soup!
What’s on your menu this week? Feel free to share a link or comment.
