Photo Collage Finally Finished!

This was a fun project for many reasons. I really enjoyed looking through the many years of photos. We have really grown and changed.

Kiana gave me a photo to add to the collage. She's so cute.

It's actually become a favorite conversation piece with our guests.

We've Picked a Winner - Back to School Giveaway!

Thank you to everyone who participated!

Menu Plan Monday - August 30, 2010

I so love cooking with Marcus but didn't have much opportunity this summer. So to my surprise Marcus announced that he had today off and would be making dinner!

He decided he was making Baked Marinated Chicken with Roasted Potatoes. Then he headed out to do some grocery shopping for the ingredients.

When he got home he said "Mom, I still need your help in the kitchen." I actually got giddy.

As always we had fun while doing the prep, talking and making each other laugh.

It made me realize how much I really missed spending time with him.

Now, onto this week's menu plan.

Baked Marinated Chicken with Roasted Potatoes

Carne Asada Tacos, Black Beans

Sandwiches and Soup

Stuffed Chicken Breast with Brocolli and Cheese, Steamed Veggies and Mixed Geen Salad

Shrimp Rolls on Whole Wheat Hot Dog Rolls, Whole Wheat Pasta Salad

Micheals Arts & Crafts Sale Finds

Since I was in the neighborhood yesterday I thought I would stop in Michaels.

I found some wall decor items for the kitchen.

And a wreath holder and autumn theme wreath for the living area. Some of their autumn theme wreaths were on 30% sale!
