Menu Monday


Happy Tax Monday everybody!



Weekend Highlights:

  • I made a batch of DELICIOUS strawberry pancakes (recipe coming soon) using frozen strawberries in the freezer.  I don’t know why I haven’t thought of using those yummy red berries before now, I have used other fruits such as blueberries and bananas, but not strawberries.  Definitely a new favorite! In fact, for my next creation I’m thinking about strawberry/banana pancakes…I’ll keep you posted!


  • Mike and I enjoyed another date night, thanks to my mom watching E for us.  We hit up Outback with a gift card from one of my students and had a blast.  Beer, red wine, steak and a burger – sounds pretty much perfect to me.




  • Everett got some “new” pajamas and an adorable pair of madras shorts from Once Upon a Child, a secondhand children’s store – my favorite new place to shop for my little guy.  More on this in a later post.




  • After being sidelined from running for about 4 weeks with a hurt knee (swelling, pain when bending) I got the results of my MRI this past Thursday and luckily nothing was torn – just some chronic stuff that can hopefully be lessened with a cortisone shot.  Since finding out nothing was seriously wrong with it, Mike, Everett and I hit the pavement running (ha!) and it felt good to get back out there – definitely out of shape – but good none the less.

  • Other than that we just hung out around the house playing, reading and lounging!
