Menu Monday 03.30

I'm already behind in my blogging! Even though it's Tuesday, I want to backtrack and start with Menu Monday.

  • Monday: Chicken Noodle Soup, garlic chiabbata bread, ice cream sandwiches
  • Tuesday: Baked Omelet, fried potatoes, and strawberries
  • Wednesday: We're having a sweet friend, Jenniffer, over for dinner & will be serving Baked Ziti, french bread, salad, and chocolate chip pie
  • Thursday: We're going to Chuck E. Cheese to celebrate Taylor being totally potty-trained (no accidents!) for one month. Way to go, Tay!
  • Friday: I'll be going out of town for a Living Proof conference today and Taylor is spending the night with Nana, so Scott's on his own to get dinner wherever he wants! I think I will make some of these Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins to take with me when I go to the conference.
  • Saturday: Our sweet neighbor is bringing us enchiladas for dinner as a post-baby gift. Thanks, Laura! We'll be saving it for Sunday lunch since my sister is in town and we'll be eating dinner with my family. I'll be making banana pudding to share with my family.
  • Sunday: Enchiladas from Laura

I have to tell you that I've made the Baked Ziti a few times already & it is FABULOUS! It makes a lot and I can usually get another casserole out of it to freeze for another meal.

Keepin' it simple...or is it, really!

As a means of keeping my blog organized and ensuring that I post regularly, I'll be designating the following days in this manner: (yes, I probably am a tad bit OCD!)

  • Menu Monday--I'll share with you (recipes included) what we'll be having for the week.
  • Toddler Tuesday--I'll be writing about my girls, of course.
  • Whatever Wednesday--This will be a free write about whatever I want to!
  • Thoughtful Thursday--I'll reflect on what God's been teaching me this week.
  • Favorite Friday--I'll share with you some of my favorites...websites, books, music, movies, etc.
  • Savings Saturday--I love a good deal! I'll be blogging about deals for the upcoming week.
Let's hope I can keep up with all of this! I'm thinking that's why I wasn't successful before because blogging was so random; I didn't know what to write about!

Robinson family blog...take 3! goes...! My girls are growing up so fast & I want to be able to remember all the great memories we are making in our little family. I've tried a couple of times in the past to start a blog and have been unsuccessful. If at first you don't succeed... try, try again! The purpose of this blog is

  • a scrapbook for my girls to look back on
  • a way to keep in touch with family and friends
  • a way to keep my life "organized"
  • a way to write down what God is doing in my life
