Labor Day

Joe and I have had a nice day off today. Joe went on a nice, long run; Lucy and I napped; and we just spent time together as a family here at home, which is what we enjoy doing the most. I kept thinking it was Sunday today, which is what always happens when we have a Monday off. It’s amazing how fast a four-day weekend can go by.

This afternoon, Joe had a photo shoot, so Lucy and I headed out to the grocery store to pick up a few things before this week’s sale ends. She LOVES going to the grocery store. Seriously. This kid just looks all around and smiles and laughs. She’s just so much fun to take places.

I’m trying to make it more of a habit for us to eat here at home. It’s so easy for us to just grab takeout on nights that I work really late, so I’m trying to keep some “easy” meals in the house for those days. It will be cheaper and healthier. What we really need to work on is not going out to eat after church. We’re normally starving by the time church is over, and since it’s about 30 minutes away from home, it’s just easier to stop somewhere to eat. Maybe we’ll try to knock that down to every other week? I’m not sure yet.

Last night, we had haystacks for dinner since we have SO many ingredients left over from Lucy’s dedication, and tonight we had baked potatoes, vegetarian buffalo wings and veggies. Light, healthy and yummy! Here’s my plan for the rest of the week:

Tuesday: Rice and stir fry (a late night for me, most likely, so one of our “easy” meals)
Wednesday: Sloppy joe pasta, veggies
Thursday: Chili
Friday: Red beans and rice
Saturday: Provinos — belated anniversary dinner!

What’s on your menu this week?

    I wish that I could get my husband to eat more vegetarian meals … he always NEEDS. MEAT. LOL! šŸ™‚ We’re having pork chops tomorrow. I love having a big dinner salad for dinner, but that’s not enough for him. What are haystacks? I’ll have to Google that. šŸ™‚
