My Menu Monday

Happy Monday, cuties!  I hope you all had a HOPPY Easter!  My little one got so hopped out, he is now feeling pretty yucky and we have a doctor's appointment later today!  Boo for Springtime allergies in East Tennessee........beautiful flowers and trees = sneezing, watery eyes, and congestion!  Ah, the price we pay for the beauty of nature!

Anyway, I thought you all might like a little peak into my dinner menu for the week.  This is a CRAZY BUSY week for us because Noah's 4th birthday party is Saturday and I have 6,845 things left to do on my to-do list!  We also have out-of-town family coming in on Thursday.  So, here's what I'm planning to cook this week (with "planning" being the operative word here, people). Maybe it will give you a few ideas for your menu too!

Monday: Chicken Noodle Soup & Rolls (to make Noah ALL better)
