Wordless Wednesday ~ A Girl and Her Dog

I can't remember what I was doing when I spotted my two girls just staring into each other's faces.

I do remember I was thankful to have my phone handy to capture the moment.

They adore each other.

A girl and her dog....such a wonderful thing!

Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of October 17th

Hello, friends!

I have been having trouble finding the time to sit down at my desk to blog.  School has started and I'm back to work.  I thought once we were getting into more of a routine, that things would be a little less hectic around here, but truthfully, we've been running around so crazy between work, school, play dates, Girl Scouts, etc. that we just haven't been home.  When we are home, the time has been spent walking the dog, working on homework, bedtime routines.  At night, when I do finally have a chance to sit down and relax, I'm usually dozing off on the couch only to have the dog wake me up barking in my face.  Usually because she is hungry, needs to go out, wants a treat, or simply because she wants my spot of the couch.

It's been a rough several weeks.  Especially when it comes to meal time.  We've been grabbing too much take-out, whipping up quick boxed meals, or simply grabbing a bowl of cereal when out of time or ideas.

This week, I have a few days off of work.  I'm determined to take advantage of the time and prepare some decent food for us!  I might even prepare a couple of bigger meals and freeze leftovers for busy nights.

Here are a few things we'll be eating this week:

with mashed potatoes, corn

Giant has Eye Roast on sale this week.  
Joe took my car to get gas and I had him pick up a nice 2 1/2 lb roast.  
Perfect for this simple crock pot recipe!  

Garden Salad, Crusty Bread

Such a pantry-friendly meal, I don't know why I don't 
prepare this more often!  

I love using the leftover Spicy Chipotle Pot Roast 
for this tasty soup recipe.  

Those are just a few of the things we'll be eating this week.  I will also plan for some quick Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Tomato Soup and side salads.  BLTs will be a hit as well for a really simple, quick meal for one of our busier nights this week.  

I'd love to hear some of your favorite go-to meals for when you have a million things to do after school or work!  Please share in the comments!
