Menu Plan Monday. July 8, 2013

Our Pink Hydrangeas

  Happy Monday! We had a great weekend! My hubby was off for two extra days for the 4th of July. We enjoyed going to the pool and watching fireworks at our little neighborhood park. We learned long ago that it is the perfect place to gaze at the fireworks bursting all around our neighborhood. We set our chairs up on the peaceful little hill in the park and watch the show, just the 4 of us. I am glad my children are still amazed at the dazzling works of art in the sky!
  I am sharing a photo of our lovely pink hydrangeas. They are loving our shady backyard and all the rain this year! We have lived in our home 8 years and this is only the second time they have bloomed.

It's time to plan the menu for the week!
Monday- Healthy Mexican Sweet Potato Skins and watermelon.
Tuesday- Curried Red Lentil Soup with Chickpeas and Quinoa and a salad.
Wednesday- dinner with friends
Thursday- leftovers
Friday- dinner with friends/family
Saturday- Tex-Mex Fajitas  and fresh fruit.
Sunday- Spaghetti with Veggie Bowtie Pasta (my daughter's favorite noodles from Barilla!) and a salad.

My birthday is this week, too! At least it is not the BIG 40 ! I dreaded that number last year!

I hope you all have a happy week! Do you have any pretty flowers blooming in your yard? I would love to know!

xoxo Elizabeth

P.S. I'm linking up with Menu Plan Monday! And this is the week of the big Summer Sale at Polka Dot Skies!

  3. Love hydrangeas so much...yours are very pretty Elizabeth. Mine are just about to flower! I have 4 years on you! I am actually enjoying my forties even though like you I dreaded the big 40!! Hope you are having a great week? J xxxx

    1. Thank you, Jane! Will your hydrangeas be pink too? It all depends on the ph level of the soil, right? This week has been good! After being out of town so much, it is nice to have a lazy week at home!
