Happy Homemaker Monday/Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday! My friend Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom moved house this week, so she hasn't posted yet! I hope she is happy and safe at her new home!

Here we go! Happy Homemaker Monday!

The weather in my neck of the woods: Warm, but not too hot. PERFECT.

Things that make me happy:  Weather that isn't overly hot or overly cold. Cool nights. Flowers on my mantel. Meeting awesome new people.

Menu for the week:
Monday:  Leftover lasagna/BBQ at a friend's
Tuesday: Pulled pork tacos
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner/Leftover Tacos
Thursday: Chicken Stir Fry
Friday: Baked Potato Bar
Saturday: Beef Veggie Soup
Sunday: Turkey Spaghetti

On the TV today: Don't really watch TV, but we are going to watch a movie tonight as a family.

Looking around the house: I need to work on my kitchen. Unpacking is a bear, ya'll.

On my to-do list: Unpack some more.
                              Load the dishwasher
New Recipe I Want to Try Soon: Actually, it's an old recipe that my Mom and Grandma have made in the past. I have a massive craving for Mizeria, a Polish cucumber salad.

In the Craft Basket: Headbands for two special baby girls.

Looking forward to this week: Some semblance of normalcy, as I return to work and this weekend. I may actually get to hang out with friends.

Tips and Tricks: Use a squeegee to clean a mirror. Seriously. Makes a world of difference!

My favorite blog post this week: This right here about getting the most out of a whole chicken. Cheapskates unite!!!! ;)

Blog Hopping: The Family Meal Blog . Yup, it's run by my sister, and yup, we totally do favoritism here. But there are SO many meal ideas!!!

No Words Needed (favorite photo): 

Lesson learned this week: Don't assume the worst about a person. You have no idea what they're struggling with. 

On my mind: A sweet friend who just suffered a death in the family, finances, work. 

Devotionals, Scriptures, Key Verses:
 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
Ephesians 4:1
