Sunday Summary (On Monday)

This was the post I was originally going to do yesterday, but we spent the day with Alex’s parents finishing the last four (of nine) loads of laundry that needed to get done to catch up from bar prep.  Then Alex had the first of three 10:00 softball games this session.  We have a terrible schedule and no one is happy about it.  The only good thing about it was that by then it had cooled off a little.

I try to plan out our menu for the week in advance.  This way we have a plan when we go grocery shopping, which saves us money.  I also find that it takes away a lot of stress too because I hate when 5:00 rolls around and I have no idea what we are going to have for dinner.  I like when other people pose things like this on their blogs because it gives me new ideas for our dinners. 

Here’s what we are eating this week:

Sunday: Dinner with Alex’s family

Monday: Pizza pancakes with salad

Tuesday: Drunken Pork Chops with Rice

Wednesday: Cornbread Taco Casserole

Thursday: Soft Pretzel Dogs

Friday: Tortellini with Trader Joe’s Bruschetta topping

Saturday: Sporting Kansas City game

Projects for This Week

I’ve got another puff quilt in the works.  This one is for Alex’s cousin’s baby.  They are in town this week so I’m hoping to get it done so I don’t have to mail it to them.  I’ve had most of the pieces cut out since before graduation, so I’m ready to get it out the door.  I’m only cautiously optimistic about this one.

We got caught up on laundry but the rest of our apartment has been sorely neglected over the last month.  My goal is always to keep it neat enough so that I’m no embarrassed if we have company show up unexpectedly.

One of Alex’s buddies had a baby at the height of last month’s insanity, so we haven’t met her yet.  We’re taking dinner over there this week, which means I have to cook and finish her gifts.
