Menu on a Monday

Monday - Shrimp & Rice Pilaf

Tuesday - Cheesy Potatoes & Ham

Wednesday - Probably out!

Thursday - Homemade Beefaroni (New to us!)

Friday - Pizza Muffins (Recipe to follow)

Saturday & Sunday - Busy weekend with 2 birthday parties to attend, so.... we may be just grabbing what we can when we can! Hope there will be leftovers to grab!

I also wanted to mention that we did NOT love the Pizza Pockets from last week. There was nothing really wrong with them, they were just not our taste, I think...
Something odd about the pie crust with pizza fixings combo!
The macaroni cheese however was AMAZING!!!! A bit labor intensive with Josh as a helper but soooo worth the extra effort!

New Recipe thought for next week? Mexican Beef & Beans Casserole

What's that Smell?

It has been a tough couple of weeks. I had just started to get back into blogging when the you know what hit the...well... basement!

July 3rd, the day our city celebrated the 4th, we were about to get ready to leave for the fireworks. Andrew thought he smelled something and eventually I smelled it too. We soon discovered the source down in the basement. Our sewer was overflowing up through a drain in the floor. The entire basement was flooded with nasty, nasty, nasty sewer water.

Well, to make a long story short, four other houses on our block were flooded too. There was some sort of block in the city's sewer. They are currently saying they are not liable for all the damage but we are meeting with them Tuesday to hopefully work things out. Please hope/pray for the best! The clean up alone was already around $5000., and that does not include all our things that were destroyed or the repair to our basement walls that were cut off about a foot up.

We have had cleaning guys in and out of the house almost everyday since the flood and are pretty tired, overwhelmed and nervous! I am off now to play Playmobil with a certain little guy. Hope you are counting your blessings as well!

Worth it...

It had been a long day! A headachey, crabby Mama was putting a small boy to bed, when she kneeled on a toy that should have been picked up earlier. It took every last bit of strength she had to not yell.

Then about 9:16 when he should be asleep, the small boy came down the stairs to tell her that he just read 2 chapters from a Magic Treehouse Book.

It sure is hard to feel anger when your heart is filled with pride!
