I hope you all had a wonderful, restful Mother’s Day!

Mine was ever so lovely…beginning with a husband up early cooking delicious things, like egg, cheese, and green onion muffins in a bacon cup (that’s right, I said bacon cup!) and pancakes with caramel and bananas…

{Here’s where I would have put the photo

but that food was gone before it could be photographed}

Followed by two adorable kiddos, whispering and giggling and sneaking in and out of rooms and here’s what they emerged with…

Weekly Menu ~ 8/27-9/2

One of many programming lists made by my sweet Lauren, interesting archery made it on to the list…thanks, Katniss.

The Olympics are always inspirational but these particular Olympics, it seems, have left us with a hole in our athletic hearts, one which can only be filled by as many cartwheels and handstands a ten year old girl can possibly do in a day.

So, we will let both the increased energy needs of my budding gymnast and the bushel of green chile my sweet husband bought yesterday be our guide for this week’s menu!

Oh, and Happy Labor Day to you all!

lime and honey marinated chicken

black beans
