More snow made for another long start to this past week (we're up to almost 70cm), but thankfully we more than made up for the amount of time spent at home by being, very busy, on the road for the last two days!
The beginning of the week had us storm stayed inside, which meant a whole lot more TV than I'd care to admit and too many games of hide-and-seek to count. It also meant very little got accomplished in the way of home projects. As much as I would have loved to finish up some of my to do list items, it just wasn't meant to be. Thankfully, the weather appears to be turning around which hopefully will allow me to finally make some headway on everything that has been on hold.
With so much time spent in the house, when the weather finally cleared on Friday we jumped at the chance to head back to Truro. Carla and I packed every seat in her van with our little army of children and made our way over the mountain for a McDonald's lunch date and an afternoon spent at the library (if you didn't catch how it went, read here). I felt like we got a day pass from what was starting to feel like house arrest. Yesterday, Saturday, Rob and I decided we wanted to head to the city and do some shopping. We packed in a lot, including buying new clothes, a trip to Costco, an imperative stop at Skip Hop Jump and a fun supper at Montana's. I actually don't remember the last time we had such a great day spent just as a family (aren't they the best?).
As per this week, I'm keeping things simple and just focusing on some side projects with my KonMari consulting (details coming soon) and finishing the last of what I can in Mairi's room because some of the items from her bedroom update have not arrived yet. Confession, I haven't even finished Mairi's bedroom and already I'm brainstorming some updates to do in the boys room (I can't be the only one who works/functions this way?!).
On the food side of things, I am really looking forward to this week's meal plan. This is mostly because of my Hello Fresh delivery that is arriving on Wednesday and will be served up on Thursday (big thank you to Hello Fresh). I will be sharing all the details in both blog and video form, so stay tuned!
Weekly Meal Plan – February 19-25 Sunday – Chicken Parmesan (bought at Costco) Monday – Stew (yes, again this week - Rob is on a roll and who am I to complain?!) Tuesday – Leftover stew Wednesday – Chinese stir-fry noodles (recipe found here) Thursday – Hello Fresh Roasted chicken dinner Friday – Homemade naan bread pizza Saturday – Meatloaf, roasted vegetables and mashed garlic potatoes (recipe found here)
I likely won't have a Sobeys grocery haul to share with you until later this week, because we bought so much at Costco - check it out!
