I love three day weekends. And I actually get to enjoy a day off of work because one of the nights I work is Monday and the college is closed on Monday holidays. Jon is also home since schools are closed. We are going pumpkin picking and out to lunch with some friends to enjoy the day off and the beautiful weather.
On the menu for the rest of the week:
Monday- chicken and rice with roasted kohlrabi
Tuesday- macaroni and cheese
Wednesday- fish sticks and french fries with carrots (from the garden)
Thursday- pasta and shrimp with green beans (I use chicken broth instead of white wine). I don't know if the kids will eat the shrimp but I know they will eat the pasta.
Friday- tacos or nachos (not sure yet)
Saturday- We are visiting Jon's family for (more) pumpkin picking and a picnic. I am making Halloween themed cake pops to share with everyone.
Sunday-Breakfast for dinner
Shrimp isn't something we eat very often due to the cost. It is expensive! But our grocery store is having a buy 1 bag, get 2 bags free sale this week. I am making room in our weekly budget to buy the shrimp and save it in the freezer for the occasional treat.
