Menu Monday and Cleaning Too!

This week starts off a little bit on the sad side.....The Patriots lost the Super Bowl.Next to the Cowboys they are my favorite team. I'm not sure what happened but it was a good game till the end.

Big Y had a great sale this week so I was able to stock up on alot this week which was great since I only needed 10 things after doing my menu plan. I was able to use the extra money towards stocking up. As a bonus I also bought TAB!! I have not seen TAB in years.It is currently in the fridge chilling for Wednesday night when G comes over to watch Ringer.

Menu Plan 2/6-2/12

Monday-Parmesean crusted tilapia,green beans and ranch rice

Tuesday-Tomato basil chicken, butter noodles and peas

Wednesday- Kidgit night for myself and Isabella, leftovers for the hubby

Thursday-Chicken salad wraps and apple slices

Friday- Brazilian chicken stew in the crockpot for the hubby. Dinner at G's so I will be making strawberry oat bars for dessert.


Sunday-Chicken marsala, green beans and mashed poatoes

 Strawberry Oatmeal Bars from the Ree aka Pioneer Woman


  • 1 3/4 sticks salted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • One 10 to 12-ounce jar strawberry preserves


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch rectangular pan.
Mix together the butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Press half the oat mixture into the prepared pan. Spread with the strawberry preserves. Sprinkle the other half of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly. Bake until light brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, and then cut into squares.

This week my goal is to deep clean my bedroom and organize our closet.I'm not sure who has more shoes....Me or the Hubby....I need to get it under control and hopefully keep it that way :) I'm hoping that putting it out there it will make me more accountable. So next week when I do Menu Monday I will give a update and the goal for next week.Maybe I will be brave and post before and after pictures..maybe ?!?!

P.S I would love for someone to tell Gisele that you do not PRAY for personal gain.You pray for strength,healing,comfort and understanding. NOT that your husband wins a GAME! ( I will step down off my milk crate now)


  1. Right?! Giselle annoys me on a normal day but her attitude after the SB just put it over the top for me. I understand she wanted her hubby to win but seriously?! lol

    Sounds like you have a great week of meals planned, yum!

  2. oat bars? I made a gooey caramel pie, and your gonna feed me oat bars? really? lol just kidding, you are the queen of yum, pus your desserts don't dissolve in the fridge sooo....

  3. Hey!!! They do have almost 2 sticks of butter. If memory serves me correctly, you tried to serve me green jello mixed with stuff!!

  4. Don't be hating! I defend and reserve the right to serve green jello mold. Please read carefully as I did not say moldy green jello. :P
