Menu Plan Monday.. July 7-12, 2008 and we're home!

Here are some photos of the Lake Cottage in Minnesota. 
Looking up at the trees..
Than-the-man with his buddy, Josiah in the hammock.  Could be brothers?
Look at the cottage!

Grandma and the kids..

O.K. that was a little bit of the Minnesota fun,  spent with DH's family at the cottage.  Yes, I did transport 7 kids by myself.. (the kids brought 2 friends: Kara and Josiah in the center front)

We got home last week and made a quick turnaround to go up north to visit my family in the U.P. of Michigan.  

So, now that we're home, how to I manage to get cleaned up from 2 trips? not very easily.  
Let's just say that it is 1:00 p.m. and we're just cleaning up from breakfast, only have the second load of laundry in, and have just now managed to clear a path through the livingroom.  The suitcases and sleeping bags ARE put away, and I'm starting to get ready to think about dinner and shopping for groceries.  Whew! I think we were all just EXHAUSTED and only wanted to sleep.  

Menu Plan:

Today (Monday): Teriyaki turkey, rice, stir fried broccoli.
Tuesday: Taco salads
Wednesday: Spaghetti and meatballs, bread, salad
Thursday: grilled chicken, fresh veggies, pasta
Friday: soup from leftovers
Saturday: ham/ potatoes/ caesar salad
Sunday: bean or pea soup

for more great ideas: organizing junkie MPM.

When are we going to have my "5 Minute Artisan Bread"?

Oooh, what's "Five Minute Artisan Bread?" It sounds like something mothers with very small children should know about...

On another note, I sure do know what you mean about recovering from trips. I still have stuff to put away from our last trip, and it was almost a week ago.
