Busy weekend here, full of firsts–first trip to a water park for the kids, first trip to the movie theater for the boys (they both did great–older boy slept for half the movie, younger boy slept the entire time) and…first black eye for my older boy. Collision in the backyard. I couldn’t believe how quickly it bruised & goose-egged up. It looks terrible now but he’s doing better. Two little boys are going to give me some well-earned grey hairs, I do believe!! LOL
As a result of the busy weekend, I only got a couple more things added to the freezer. Still, looking at my list, I’m feeling pretty good about everything new I’ve added to the freezer! I have maybe ten or so meals left from before M was born (6 weeks ago today!) and it’ll be good to get a new stock in. I have several meals planned this week and next to use up some of those already-frozen meals.
I am SO glad I did this this weekend. Today we got an e-mail from housing that our dishwasher was one of the recalled Maytag dishwashers. We had to unplug the dishwasher and it will be out of commission until further notice. Oh, fun! I think I’ll be rearranging my meal plans for the next few weeks to mostly eat out of the freezer and/or any other meal that creates minimal dishes. And buy some paper plates for lunches!!

Butterhorns–I didn’t make these yet. I decided to wait until I make them for dinner this week and double the recipe then.
As I visited other blogs linked up to this challenge, I found some recipes I look forward to trying in coming months. A few of them include:
Whole Wheat Pizza Bites from Extraordinary Ordinary Life
Chicken Bacon Subs from Life As Mom
Sloppy Corn Muffins from Heavenly Homemakers (though I’m going to use taco meat instead)
