Menu Monday & Weekend Recap

This weekend was such a good one. Saturday morning we had a few friends over for breakfast and then we went to a neighboring subdivision for their garage sales. We all made out like bandits but more on that tomorrow. After a couple hours of garage saling (is that a word?) we went out to lunch. It was a gorgeous, sunny, 70 degree day so we sat on the patio and enjoyed a yummy lunch with friends.

Afterwards we came back home and took a nap. We were up at 7:00 a.m. for heavens sake! We were planning on just kicking back the rest of the evening, but I got a text from a long lost friend I haven't seen in forever. She moved to New York, but was in town so she came over because she hasn't seen our house. We gave her the tour and then sat on the deck all evening drinking wine and catching up on our lives. It was so good to see her!

Sunday we just bummed around the house. I talked to my parents for a while because they had just gotten back from an Alaskan cruise. I caught up on my shows, worked out, prepped my meals for the week and went for a nice walk with Garth. Perfection!

It was a great weekend. Here is what is on the menu for this week:


Monday - Leftover chicken chili. I made this over the weekend and it was a hit! So delicious. I love that all we have to do is warm up dinner tonight. Easy peasy.


Tuesday - Hummus Crusted Chicken. I saw this recipe on Pinterest last week and knew I had to try it. I probably won't cook this with the veggies because I'm weird about my food touching, but I bet it will be delish.

Wednesday - Black  Bean and Avocado Bowl. An oldie but a goodie over here. It is so easy and nutritious that it is a staple in our summer diet. 

Thursday - Crockpot Italian Chicken. I had made this before, but I do not use cream cheese or cream of chicken soup. I use a whole bottle of Italian Dressing and I serve it over lettuce instead of noodles. So basically I just went with the idea of the recipe and did my own thing. And as much as it drives Garth crazy when I don't follow a recipe exactly, he LOVED this and requests it weekly!

Friday - Pesto Pasta Chicken. Another favorite in our house these days. This is another one Garth has been requesting weekly and I am happy to oblige.

What is on your menu this week?

I also have a thing with my food touching! Hubby always looks at me strangely but whatever :) i think i am going to have to try some of those recipes, I am always looking for new ways to prepare chicken.

That sounds like a wonderful weekend! Yay for reconnecting with an old friend and for the nice weather. Can't wait to read about your "finds" at the garage saling :D
