Menu Plan Monday..


We finally made it into DC to see the cherry blossoms. I had wanted to go on Saturday, but it was supposed to rain. Well, it didn't. Sunday was supposed to be party cloudy with only 20% chance of rain. It was completely cloudy and raining. At first we weren't going to go, but decided to head that way and hang out in Arlington for a while to see if the rain stopped. We had a late lunch and when we came out, the rain had stopped!! Into DC we went!! It was pretty cool out, so we were only there for about 2 hours.


We did decent last week, but still had 3 meals to carry over to this week. I got the fajitas in to marinate on Saturday night, but we didn't get home from DC until about 8 PM and I didn't really want to make a big meal that late. On top of that, we had a late lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. That will make for an easy meal today--which is nice since they will be here working on the bathroom.

I had some bananas that needed to be used up so I went on the search to find a recipe to use them in. I found this and decided to try them out! I added 3 mashed bananas in and about 1/2 extra cup of oatmeal. I chilled the dough before baking. Actually, I was only making a few at a time so that we could have them fresh out of the oven. The other night, there was only a little bit of dough left after I made what we wanted, so I went ahead and made the rest. I had one the next morning and I think it was better after sitting for a day than fresh out of the oven. They were soooo yummy!!



We also had the buffalo chicken chili mac. Oh my---it was sooo good!! I used about 1/3 cup hot sauce.



On to this week....
