Happy Mother's Day

A very happy Mother's Day, to all of you wonderful mothers out there. It can be an exhausting & all encompassing journey, but worth it!

I'll be taking the boys to soccer this morning, & then hopefully spending the rest of the day mostly relaxing & getting things done. M is making Persian kebabs & rice tonight for dinner. Yum!

Here's our menu plan for the week:

Sunday - kebabs & rice
Monday -  leftover pizza (from Saturday's sleepover)
Tuesday - leftover kebabs & rice
Wednesday - spaghetti & meatballs
Thursday - tacos
Friday - I'm going to a fundraiser for 5th grade moms, so I'll probably make pasta & chicken for the kids before I go.

It's going to be a very simple menu plan this week, as I didn't make a large meal yesterday, like I normally do. I'd also like to go through the garage freezer & update my inventory with what we have on hand.

What about you? What are you up to this Mother's Day? What's on the menu this week?

    Happy Mother's Day!
    I am from Canada with an Eastern European background, so we celebrated a week ago. Today is about getting outdoors and replanting some flowers and herbs - hopefully there will be no more frost. Our outdoor soccer starts next week, my 9 year old is very excited.
    I am always amazed how much you pack into your weekends!

    1. Hope your 9 year old is loving soccer! My boys certainly do. I find that all of that exercise keeps them slightly better behaved, so it's also a win for the parents. ;-)

      And thank you! I go back & forth on my productive weekends.

  2. Belated Happy Mother's Day to you also! I am kind of late reading everyone's blogs but have been on a short trip and slow to catch up.

    1. Thank you! Hope you had a fabulous day.
