Curly Momma's Weekend Happenings and Meal Plan, Week 6

It is week 6 of meal planning and this week brings warmer temps! Last week was the most challenging week I've ever had with the whole meal planning thing, because all of us (except Brian) came down with the plague stomach bug. We are all feeling MUCH better now and I am craving any extra calories I can get this week. You can see the meal plan for last week (week 5) by clicking HERE.

SOOoo. Usually I include photos of a few of the meals that I made last week, but since we were in survival mode I didn't take ANY photos. Sorry... but, I am going to include photos of a few of the meals that I plan to make this week to make up for it!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

My brilliant idea while I ran for the first time after recovering from the plague (stomach flu). A bath picnic. Yes, this is ALL for ME. Oh heck yes!!
Friday I got my last long run in for my half training (8 miles!) and then went to the grocery store and got salami, cheese, crackers and wine and then enjoyed a Lush bubble 'bath picnic'. 

Hit my usual stores (Banana Republic, Gap, J. Crew and ON) today at the outlet stores. I shopped and shopped and shopped... Wow, I scored some deals. Here are a few dressing room selfies... I am really digging all the anchor pieces and got several for me
On Saturday I went to see Divergent at the 5 Star (where you get reclined seats, food service, etc. ahhh!!) and then I hit my favorite stores at the outlets for some Spring discounts. I can not get enough of all of the anchor outfits and accessories out there... especially since we are going to Destin this summer! I also fell in love with this chambray t-shirt dress at ON (first photo), I can't wait to style it different ways such as with a belt and cardi or utility jacket.

Sunday was pretty low key, but I started my online Easter Bible Study with the Good Girls, did our meal plan and grocery shopping for the week and planned out my 30x30 clothes for the next challenge.

Are you ready for the meal plan for this week? Here ya go!

Menu Plan for Week of March 30, 2014:

Sunday - Chinese
Every other week we get take out Chinese for dinner. Yum!

Monday - Tacos We didn't get to tacos last week due to us being sick, so I am making them this week!

Tuesday - Breakfast Burritos (from freezer stash) with a fruit salad, recipe HERE   
These breakfast burritos are packed with either sausage or bacon, egg, Velvetta cheese AND tater tots! This freezer recipe makes TWELVE burritos, so you can eat two for dinner and freeze the rest for a quick morning meal or even breakfast for lunch on the go! Just pull it out from the freezer and pop it in the microwave for 80 seconds on each side.

Wednesday - Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup with Bread-maker White Loaf Bread, recipe HERE
Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup Recipe from   
Nathan tried some vegetable soup at Schnucks when he was there with Brian getting groceries and now wants me to make some. The Schnucks recipe looked really time consuming and made A LOT of vegetable soup! I wanted something easier so I found this slow cooker vegetable soup that is easy to tweak... such as, I am not sure if I'll leave the meat in it or the lima beans... I also plan to add some sliced potato chunks. Anyway, it should be easy enough and I hope Nathan enjoys it!

Thursday - Slow Cooker Steak Diane with Twice Baked Potatoes, recipe HERE
Two days in a row of slow cooker meals? Why not! Also, I've been craving some Twice Baked Potatoes! Yummmm!

Friday - Pizza (Frozen) Fridays are SO crazy around here and it seems I never feel like cooking by the time Friday evening rolls around. So, this Friday we are having Mama Lucia frozen pizza!

Saturday - Bourbon Chicken with Rice, recipe HERE
My second week of meal planning, tonight I made Bourbon Chicken with white rice. The kids always gobble this up, it is one of their favorite meals I make. Link to recipe and to the rest of my eats for the week in my profile or   
The kids LOVE this meal and I do, too! It is SO easy, too! I actually got this recipe a LONG time ago from the Babycenter Bargain thread!
