Weekend wrap up and Menu plan

So this weekend was busy. Saturday I took Rebecca to see my little brother Josh play basketball. Then I had to rush home so Bill could go to work (the bad part of only having one car). Then I watched Josh while my parents went Christmas shopping. Then once Bill got home we had to hurry to Columbus to his parent's Christmas party. Yes the dreaded Christmas party that I was dreading....

I felt that it was important for us to go. It is the season of being generous, goodwill and being with family. Even if you do not agree with them all the time and they do not agree with you. So we went to my in-laws house for their Christmas party. They seemed shocked when we came in, like they were not expecting us to show up. But overall it was okay. It was nice to see Bill's cousin and her family and some old family friends. I did not spend much time talking to my mother-in-law and I think that was appropriate. We stayed longer than we were going to; we didn't get home until 11pm or so.

Sunday, Bill went to Cincinnati with my father, brother and some family friends for the Bengals Browns football game. I think it is was a much needed mens day that hubby needed. I made use of Sunday to do some laundry, make buckeyes, went to dinner with my mom, sister and other brother, did some crafts with Rebecca and just puttered around the house. I kind of stayed off the computer too. I think I needed a technology free type day. :) I also made up our menu plan for the week....

Monday:  Hamburger helper (Cheeseburger Macaroni) and peas

Tuesday: Chicken patties, carrots, and pears

Wednesday: Chicken and Cheese bake (new recipe), green beans and carrots

Thursday: Pizza and leftovers

Friday: Christmas Eve party

Saturday: Christmas Dinner with my parents

Sunday: Chili, grilled cheese and veggies
