Happy Tuesday! How was your weekend? My husband and I had a lovely weekend away, celebrating our tenth anniversary. My in-laws stayed at our house and took care of our daughter and our cats. We went to Lake Placid, which is absolutely beautiful, but experienced below-average temperatures over the weekend, requiring us to grab some wool sweaters and our winter coats out of storage, on our way out the door. Saturday’s overnight low temperature was 28 – brrr!
We take a day trip to Lake Placid with our daughter at least once every year, but it was nice to do the things we can’t do when she’s with us, like walk through every shop on the main street, and eat in restaurants that don’t have chicken fingers on the menu. We also got to sleep in, and lay around and read in our hotel room. I may or may not have even taken a brief nap on Saturday… In short, it was a dream weekend for parents of small children.
Here are the pictures I shared on Instagram over the weekend:
I spent most of yesterday digging out – doing laundry, tidying up, and going for a long walk to burn a few of the calories from the yummy chocolate tart and other goodies I consumed over the weekend. I also finally put together this week’s dinner meal plan. Here’s what I came up with:
Monday: Slow cooker chicken Parmesan with spaghetti and raw veggies
Tuesday: Leftovers with roasted asparagus
Wednesday: Spice-rubbed grilled pork tenderloin with rice and leftover asparagus
Thursday: Spicy peanut noodles from Simple Vegetarian Pleasures and frozen edamame
Friday: Cheeseburgers on the grill with roasted carrots and beets
Saturday: Homemade mac and cheese with frozen peas
Sunday: Leftovers (fridge clean-out)
How was your weekend? What’s for dinner at your house this week? If you’re married, how many years has it been?
