My teen son told me we needed to branch out with our meals at home, so I’m going to be a little more adventurous this week.

Monday – Pesto Angel hair pasta with shrimp, zucchini on side, bread

This little packet is great.  You can find it in the aisle with the chili seasoning and marinades.


Tuesday- Carnitas from Trader Joe’s (They come in a vacuum sealed package and you just heat them up), cilantro lime rice, corn with chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe’s

Wednesday- Chicken, baked beans, roasted potatoes

Thursday- Mediterranean style pork (bought it marinated that way), couscous , green beans

Friday – take out

Saturday – go out

This is a little more creative than last week!

This weekend went by so quickly!  We were a little busier than I like to be and the weather still wouldn’t cooperate for me.  I did get to make it to Trader Joe’s and Kroger and I was done before 9:30 with both of those on Saturday.  That was a great accomplishment!  We didn’t have time to go out to eat either night, but we did have take out from our local Thai place Friday night.  That was delish!  

I will do a full post on entertainment soon, but I finished a book that came highly recommended to me –  The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen.  I think I enjoyed The Last Mrs. Parrish more.  The Wife was slow moving IMO and I kept waiting for more twists and turns.  I finished the book still having lingering questions and I hate that!  So, I don’t know if I would recommend it.  Maybe it was too soon to read it after Mrs. Parrish?  Here is my ultimate review:  meh.  Did I miss something?  Please comment if you have read it!

Alright, let’s kick Monday’s butt!

  1. I will have to check out that book. Maybe I should add it before The Last Mrs. Parrish based on your recommendation? Hope your teenager was happy with the meal plan…my 13 year old son has become very vocal about things lately…haha!
