Meal Planning Monday

I think every weekend should be a 3-day weekend.  This weekend was exceptionally relaxing.  Mr. Spouse was out of town and I swore I was going to be super productive, but I decided that being productive is really overrated.  When Mr. Spouse is home, he’s ALWAYS going…he really can’t sit still.  So I always feel guilty when I just sit around doing nothing.  I didn’t exactly sit around doing nothing…I went to dinner with the girls, went shopping with my mom, visited my about-to-pop-pregnant sister.  So I was definitely busy, but productive?!?! Well, notsomuch.  One thing I managed to do this morning was to get my shopping list ready for the week ahead.  Now I’m about to head out the door with my boys and you can guarantee that I’m not overly-thrilled about taking them to the grocery store.  Fingers crossed for a quick, in & out kinda trip!!!  Here’s what I’ll be cookin’ up in the kitchen this week…

Monday:  Carnitas Avocado Pizza with Chipotle Avocado Mayonnaise

Tuesday:  Busy Mom’s Chicken Soup with Rice

Wednesday:  Pepperoni Pizza Quesadillas

Thursday:  Queso Smothered Chicken with Orzo

Friday:  Leftovers

Saturday & Sunday…I haven’t gotten that far yet!  HA!

If you’re enjoying a 3-day weekend like me, I hope you’re spending LOTS of time being just as unproductive as you can be ;)
