Monday Menu

I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day.  It was an exciting week for me - with my birthday on Thursday and then Mother's Day on Sunday - let's just say we were very busy!

Mountain Man was so good to me on Thursday - first he had watermelon for me when I got home from work - then he cooked dinner (the Spaghetti that was planned) and then had coconut cake for dessert!  On top of all that I received a beautiful hydrangea plant.

Then, while he was cleaning up the kitchen (yep, he even did that!) the doorbell rang and I received some beautiful tulips from my two girls in Atlanta.

Saturday night, Mountain Man, our daughter, sil, and I went to Outback for my belated birthday dinner.  Of course, Mountain Man HAD to tell everyone there that it was my birthday - so the wait staff called me "birthday girl all night.  Of course, I also got the brownie and ice cream along with the little song - it was all in good fun and we had a good time.

Today, we had everyone (the sil, daughter, and mom) over for lunch/dinner - Mountain Man grilled chicken while I fixed mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, biscuits, and rolls.  Everything was really good and I think everyone enjoyed the meal.  After lunch we 'Skyped' with the girls in Atlanta - They were able to  see how Lorelai has enlarged Melissa.  Let us just say that I think Melissa will be glad to see Lorelai make her appearance!  (For those of you out there that are Mothers, you will remember how you felt when you were eight months pregnant.   She is excited, but is really ready to not be pregnant anymore!)

Well, that is just a quick rundown of how the end of the week went.  I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend and your hubs treated you as well as Mountain Man treated me all weekend.  Now, let's get to the menu plan for the week.

Monday, May 14 - Pork Chops w/Rice and Green Beans
Tuesday, May 15 - Chicken Alfredo, Pasta, Salad
Wednesday, May 16 - Slow-Cooker Enchiladas
Thursday, May 17 - Grilled Fish, Wild Rice, Corn
Friday, May 18 - Movie Night, Pizza

We actually stayed with the plan (pretty much) last week - I think we can stay with it this week.

So, how did you do last week?  Did you stay with it or did you get derailed?  Have a super week!
