Menu Plan Monday #92

Time is such a weird concept.  I feel like the past few months have simultaneously dragged and flown.  It’s weird to think I have only a bit more than a month until Baby G arrives.  Daniel remains amazingly calm through all this (“We’ve known for almost 8 months that this day was coming.  I don’t know why it’s suddenly a big deal”) while I am in full freak out mode.

So, yeah, everything is pretty normal around here!

Good news, though?  Spring has finally arrived in my area of the world.  The flowers are in full bloom, and it makes me happy.


My camera has been a little busy, which has been nice for me, too.  I’m finally finding the motivation to learn my new lens, and I’m pretty happy with the results.  If all works out, I might be able to get some good photos of G when he gets here!

That’s where I’ve been this week, at least mentally.  What’s happening in your part of the world?

If your curious, here’s my menu for this week:

  1. Vegetarian Cheesy Rice
  2. Crock Pot Chicken with Mac and Cheese
  3. Chicken and Rice Soup
  4. Chicken, Bacon, Alfredo Lasagna
  5. Sausage and Tortellini Soup
  6. Baked Chicken with Roasted Sweet Potatoes
  7. Chicken and Dumplings

What’s on your menu this week?

  1. Beautiful photo! You’re definitely getting the hang of that 50mm lens. 🙂

      Thank you! I’m pretty good in great lighting conditions… but I’m happy with my results so far!

    Had your tomato soup from last week…it was ah MAY zing! 😀

    Alfredo sauce with BACON? Who doesn’t like bacon?! 🙂 Do you just chop it up after frying and toss it in?

  4. I can’t believe you are still cooking! You must rest girl! I MUST try that lasagna – it looks and sounds delicious!

      If I don’t do it, no one will! Starting next week, though, I’m doubling all my meals so I can throw them in the freezer for reheating after the baby comes. After that, though, I’m sticking to easy, low labor meals 😉

      I forgot to get ricotta and mozzarella cheese at the grocery store for the lasagna. So, I made alfredo noodles and will make the lasagna this week instead, oops. I have photos that I planned to post, but I’m not 100% happy with the photos. The new lens really does make a difference, so I need to reshoot it with that 😉

    Daniel’s response to your full freak-out mode sounded just like something Mr. M would tell me! 🙂 I don’t understand how boys remain rational about mind-blowing stuff. I can’t believe there’s only a MONTH left until you get to meet Baby G!!!! (there, I’m freaking out with you, so you don’t have to feel alone!)

    • pamasaurus says:

      Men amaze me with their ability to face stressful situations without batting an eye! I wish I could do that 😉

      Actually it’s now 27 days! (I am having a repeat csection, which I just scheduled on Monday for June 5th.)
