Menu Plan Monday: Aug 23rd

We just wrapped up a fun and laid-back weekend! It was full of things like a visit to the farmers market, exploring a *new* antique store, taking a country drive, making pesto, and a night out with my hubby. "Yea!" for weekends, right?!

Now it's back to the weekday schedule and, boy, do I need to get back to it! These past few, busy weeks have left my house a little neglected. (Or has that been the past seven years, since the kiddos have come along)? However, this past week my Princess has been on a domesticity kick: dusting, sweeping, Swiffering, cleaning windows...all without being asked! I mean, she's been begging to do *chores*. And even though she's not as interested in doing the chores I need her to do (you know, like, cleaning up her own room), she's just dying to help with things like mopping. I think it has something to do with allowances... Whatever has brought on this great desire to help out, I'm planning to exploit it to its fullest!:) I have lots of housecleaning to do this week! So I'm keeping the cooking simple.

Monday: Grilled Salmon with Grilled Squash and Roasted Potatoes
Tuesday: Pasta with Pesto and Grilled Chicken
Wednesday: Tostadas
Thursday: Grilled Burgers with Onion Strings
Friday: Homemade Pizza
Saturday: (snacks and leftovers)
