Never underestimate the power of a get-away weekend. Seriously. Just a couple of days away from my normal routine can totally reenergize, inspire and motivate me.
Ben, Courtney and I got the chance to fly to Boston this weekend to spend some time with my brother and my niece. Family time in Boston, Massachusetts + Perfect Fall Weather = Happy girl.
Normally the day following a weekend get away is catch up day but today I have to go in for a root canal. :( I ordered my groceries online from Wal Mart.com last night so all I have to do it drive to the store today and wait for someone to load my groceries into my car for me. (Gotta love the Wal Mart pick up service.) I have an ambitious menu planned for the week - considering my compromised tooth situation - but better to overplan than under plan, I guess.
Meals for the week:
Monday: Shrimp Stir Fry
Tuesday: Roast Chicken with Garlic Smashed Potatoes This is a new recipe that you will definitely see on the blog in the near future.
Wednesday: Chicken Chimichangas I am using the leftover brown rice from the Shrimp Stir Fry (Monday) and the leftover chicken from the Roast Chicken (Tuesday). See what I did there?
Thursday: Meatloaf Burgers A new recipe from my Cook's Country magazine. I am SUPER excited about this recipe - it combines 2 of Courtney's favorite meals: meatloaf and burgers.
Friday: This is the homecoming football game for Courtney's high school. Her soccer team is having a BBQ fundraiser to raise money for their team. We will all be helping out with the fundraiser and of course eating BBQ in support of our favorite player.
Saturday: Today is the day of the homecoming dance. (And all of the fun adventures that go along with it - hair and nail appointments, pictures etc.) The girls will be heading out to dinner before they go the dance so that leave Ben and I on our own for dinner. Sounds like date night to me!
Sunday: Waffle Bar Complete with all the toppings: strawberries, chocolate chips, whipped cream - the works.
Panko Parsely 1.5 pound 85% lean ground beef
Worcestershire Sauce Snow Peas Shrimp
Ketchup Baby Bella Mushrooms Whole Chicken
Dijon Mustard Broccoli
Onion Powder Carrots Hamburger Buns

I thought I would share just a few more pictures from our trip to Boston because it was such a fun weekend.
Here's to a great week.
