Spring Break

Thankfully, the sun reappeared today to kick off spring break. Yay for the sun!! We were able to squeeze in a couple of fun days of camping by heading just far enough east to miss the snow and sleet that blanketed the area. Instead, we were able to spend Friday evening and most of the day Saturday enjoying the outdoors. I'll try to post some pics in the next couple of days. We did stay in a cabin, which while not equipped with central heat, did have two stone fireplaces, requiring quite a bit of attention throughout the night--yes, we were happy to return to the warm comforts of home.

While the kiddos are on spring break, we try to incorporate something fun into each day. Today we spent part of the day with Nana and Papa; then Joel decided to surprise the boys with a new basketball hoop. They were so excited.

With Spring Break this week, I'm trying to use up many of the meals from my freezer cooking earlier in the month, so without further ado, here's the weekly menu:

Monday--Four Cheese Italian Minestrone
Tuesday--Monterey Jack ChickenAdd Image
Thursday--Creamy Chuck Roast with Mushrooms
Friday--date with Joel :)
Saturday--Garlic Parmesan Chicken
Sunday--Pancakes and Broccoli Quiche
