What’s up Wednesday ~

What is up with this weather?  A-W-E-S-O-M-E….TOTALLY (You know you were singing the cheer!!)

What is up with the GAS PRICES – ugh!!!!  Price’s up and TOPS ‘earn gas points’ options are down…GGGRRR!!

What is up with the greasy gunk that is on the top of my cupboard door?  I mean seriously, in a completely unexplainable (well – maybe its cuz my dream house went for sale) burst of spring cleaning energy, I decided to clean the top of all of my kitchen cupboards last night and the very top of the doors are sticky???  Dusting the tops created a huge mess, I had to brillo pad the top of the doors and I pretty much took off a layer of poly…  What is going on??

What is up with screaming saying, “You CAN’T pay big money for new WOOD kitchen cabinets, then paint them white!”  Seriously – what is wrong with my husband??  CAN’T?? – Oh contraire, my fabulous husband!!

And – What is up with you? 

Do tell… I care, I really do (and I am nosy, nosey, nozey – how do you spell that?- as all get out, so humor me  PLEASE!!)

Sunday Funday; Weekly Meal Plan

Oh what a weekend it was… could it have been more beautiful – Amazing!!  So many people have already pulled out the shorts and flip flops…  have you?  I wanted to wear flip flops but I did not have time for painting toes  – and we all know THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN GROSS TOES!!! 

I am a little concerned with this weather and the fact that we never had winter… weird isn’t it?  I mean – I am very happy with my propane bill this year – but are we gonna have a normal summer? I really love the beautiful summers and I will be so sad if we do not have the typical summer weather… what do you think?

Yesterday was Kid’s Day at “the most amazing yet” Mothertime Marketplace semi-annual consignment sale and I met my new business partner – LOL!  Seriously, have you ever met someone and immediately knew you had a connection…  Jennifer, the beautiful, amazing author of MotherThyme: a cooking and home blog is also a contributing editor for Mothertime Marketplace, with me.  We talked for about 5 hours and made big blog business plans, so check out her amazing blog and stay tuned!!

Today we attended my oldest son’s Blue and Gold Ceremony; this is the ceremony where he – and the 10 other boys in his den – “crossed over” from cub scouts to boy scouts.  It was a great get- together with lots of great families and an awesome spaghetti dinner WITH leftover sauce, enough for a couple of meals…. So it did not matter that I did not make sauce today – COOL!!


Which brings me to the “Weekly Meal Planning”:


Monday   White Sauce Chicken served over Linguini

Tuesday– Pork Roast in Crockpot

Wednesday–  GRANDMA’s dinner night– I’m working and Kerry’s golfing… Probably hotdogs on grill!

Thursday – Pulled Pork Sammies

Friday – Boboli (our favorite cheeseburger pizza J)

Saturday –  Sausage and Potatoes in the Crock

Sunday – Lasagna or Grilled Chicken, weather permitting…  Gotta stay flexible you know!!


So what are you eating this week??

 Are you loving this deal?  How are you making it work?

Sunday Funday and a weekly “meal” plan…

Wow, what a weekend… but where did it go?  Friday, of course, is over before it starts – right??!! 

Saturday was my oldest’s final basketball game and that excites me because it means BASEBALL season and that is our family favorite for sure!!  ALTHOUGH this year, three kids, three different teams and one of them is a first time t-baller… if you have been there you may be feeling my pain – LOL –  You know where the kids are more interested in picking grass than playing ball… makes for a long few hours – hahaha!  Saturday night I got to play in a poker tournament and I won a little bit of money…  I figure anytime I have a night out with great friends, having good food and drinks and I actually make some money rather than spend it, it really is a great night!!

Today – what a beautiful day!  The kids, the dog and my husband all tired themselves out by playing outside… me??  I did 7 loads of laundry and I would love to tell you I hung them outside in the lovely fresh spring air, but then you would have to call me a “liar, liar pants on fire” cuz I never left the house…. UNTIL I ran to Tops to take advantage of some of the great deals posted.  AND I know I am remiss in the TOPS deal postings but hello – 7 loads of laundry – and poker – and shopping – then steaks grilled outside…  can you really blame a girl??

PLUS – I totally feel like I am getting sick… I am drinking OJ and taking vitamins but I have been battling it for a couple weeks and UGH…

Anyhow, I am finalizing my matchups now but seriously needed a break from coupon matchups as my head was spinning.  I decided to finalize the weekly meal plan and it turned into this little post…   so, weekly meals:

Monday:  Tri-town meeting so will need something quick…  We made 2 extra steaks when we grilled and I shaved them thinly so we are shooting for homemade Pittsburgh Steak Salads.  Only problem is I have not found Riveria dressing…anyone??

Tuesday:  Daddy’s Bowling Night so we get BREAKFAST FOR DINNER, the kids will have French Toast and bacon (PLANNED leftovers from Sunday’s brunch – we made a lot of extra because I need bacon for BLT roll ups for a work party treat and for Friday’s subs as BLT is my choice) and I’ll make an omelet!

Wednesday:  My work night so Boiled Dinner for the fam.  This must only be eaten when I am not home!!  And it’s not the cabbage I can’t stand… corned beef, BLECH!!

Thursday:  Scout Night but I can prepare Shake’N’Bake Chicken the night before and then cook and serve with Garlic Noodles (the Lipton Sides – $1 this week and seriously amazing!!) and peas.

Friday:  My day off and I am going to school with Conner – now won’t that be fun??  Then after my nap – LOL, no seriously I am already planning it – a week ahead and I am so excited!! – I’ll grab fresh rolls, lunch meat, cheese and veggies and we’ll have a Make Your Own Sub Night.

Saturday:  Leftover chicken will make an awesome meal of Chicken Stir Fry.  I found this recipe very detailed out on a blog I started reading a few weeks ago:  A Slob Comes Clean  and honestly – wholly cow, is this girl me, upside down…  If you have some cleaning or organizing issues or just want a good laugh, check out her blog!!

Sunday: Time to make SAUCE again and Lasagna Roll-ups are being requested!!

So – what are you having this week?  Anything exciting??
