Weekending + Menu Monday

Hey there, friends -- Happy Holiday Monday! Don't you just love three day weekends? We saw my mom and sister on Saturday, spent the day with friends yesterday and today we're doing our usual gym / grocery / Gymboree routine. Having three days off really allows us all to get everything done that we want and need to do -- and a bonus is that Keith will be off for his regular day off tomorrow too. Here's what our weekend looked like... Saturday morning Keith and I took turns working out in the morning so Luke could nap at home and we could keep them out of the gym child care. I ran 3x this week and by Saturday I could really feel it in my knees. I was reminded why, although I really enjoy running, I just can't do it so often anymore. It felt so good to get outside though -- we've had so much rain lately.
Luke was still sleeping when I came home, and Keith took Owen to his basketball game, so I had about an hour to myself at home -- all by myself! I got so much done! Prepped a salad for lunch, folded laundry, read a few blogs, cleaned up the house, polish some furniture and flipped through a magazine with a cup of coffee. It was lovely!
 Lukey is dying to get outside! He's tired of the rainy weather too.
Sunday morning I made chocolate chip and blueberry pancakes before we headed up to the city to visit The Walt Disney Family Museum. Luke has been such a great eater lately! He really loves eggs right now!
The kids (and the grown-ups) had a great time checking out the museum! Keith and I have been before, pre-kids, and it is a totally different experience now. There is a lot of stuff to look at, read and watch, and with Luke more interested in running (yes, he practically runs now) it was hard to pay much attention. The big kids were great and played nicely together! Luke and I spent lots of time walking up and down the ramp above and looking out the glass floor to ceiling windows. We all went to lunch afterward and for a visit to the Disney Store -- I think we're all ready for another trip to Disneyland! Our menu this week is inspired by my fascination with one-pan meals. I'm not totally convinced they'll be as great as they sound, but I am more than willing to give them a try because they'll probably save me a lot of time and effort. 


I got a few of these ideas on the Goodful Facebook page. I love their videos and they make the recipes seems so simple -- we'll see! How was your weekend? What are you making for dinner?
