Soccer Boys!

My sweet, soccer boys!  How I love them so!

Monday, May 21, 2012


I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.  Our freezers are packed, so I just need to make a plan!  Lucas does not eat these meals for the most part, but Logan does.  I do try to get Lucas to try what we are eating, but I have enough battles with him that I choose not to battle over meals.  :)

Monday-- falafel on chapati bread with hummus, tzatziki, lettuce, tomatoes

Tuesday--Hungarian cabbage and noodles with hamburger meat (I have cabbage and decided to try this recipe out), green beans

Wednesday--teriyaki chicken, egg rolls, stir fry veggies, rice

Thursday--breakfast burritos, fruit

Friday--roasted potatoes, browned hamburger meat with pork and beans, green beans.  I know this sounds like an odd combination, but you mix the cooked meat and beans and serve it over the potatoes.  I heard about it and tried it and I really liked it.  It has been a long time since we've had it, though.

On the weekends we typically eat up leftovers or have sandwiches.  This weekend will be a bit different because the boys don't have soccer since it is a holiday weekend.  We really don't have any plans either.

Next week:  baked chicken (using one of those new things from Kraft where you dampen the chicken then dip in bread crumbs and cheese....I had a coupon to get it for free), fire roasted veggies (from freezer section at Costco....it has potatoes in it, too)-------->  I originally had this planned for Friday, but then remembered that I had potatoes in the pantry that needed to be used.

Day at the zoo.....

This past Sunday, we met with my friend, Andria, and her family at the zoo. We had SUCH a great time! Later in the day, my friend, Laura, and her family joined us. I had not seen Laura since 10th grade (1996)! It was so great to see her and meet her lovely family. I love that we all went to school together in Texas and have now settled in this area. It's always nice to have friends from "home".

I took over 200 pictures, so it was very hard to narrow it down. Here are some of my favorites. By the way, Blogger changed the way to upload pictures and I can not get it to work right for me. I haven't looked into it. My pictures all overlap, but if you click on one of them, then you can scroll through them individually in full screen mode.

Another tooth bites the dust.....

He's becoming a pro!  Although, he either lost this one on the soccer field or swallowed it.  Ooops!  For the record, when he lost his first tooth, he was very excited that "his tooth came out like Papa's".  :-)
