Menu Plan: June 3 - 9

First of all, can I just tell you I cannot believe it is June already, Sunday June 3rd specifically.  I feel like we just planted our garden last week.  BOOM and we have squash and banana peppers, that-have-been-picked.  Complaining, no, just amazed that days slip by so quickly.

No, I didn't have a menu plan last week on paper.  I tried one in my head and that didn't work either.  I hated it too. I wondered what happened that I didn't do one!  While I cannot remember what kept me from writing it down I do remember how I felt.  NOT GOOD, overwhelmed, annoyed, frustrated, bad moodish (yes, I made that word up), you get where I'm going with this...    Luckily, the children and I ended up in the mountains at the end of the week for a surprise farewell so that was kinda a relief (at meal time).  (My mother left for a three mission trip to Honduras and we just HAD to see her off!)   Darrell survived too, I left him some goodies in the fridge!  So YEA for a new week and new week that has PLANNED meals!!!!! 

Last night I asked Darrell to let me know some things he'd like for dinner this week...he was happy to spit out requests...
