It's Just Another Menu Monday

As Ty and I were getting ready for bed last night, I told him that I wished somehow I could make my weekends feel as long as my weekdays. I spend all my week looking forward to the weekend and then it passes in the blink of an eye.

No fair.

I would love to go back to being a kid. Time moved so much more slowly then. A single summer day could stretch on for what seemed like an eternity.

No fair.

Ty and I spent some much needed quality time with friends this weekend, but most of our weekend was spent helping my brother and sister-in-law move out of their house. It was a long Saturday and lots of work, but I was happy to help. It's one of the small ways I can pay Ashley back for being my right-hand woman during all the wedding planning.

Between helping Chris and Ashley move and taking care of some things around our house, I unfortunately managed to find time to go to the grocery store for the week. It takes a little more time on the front end to plan your meals out, but it'll make your weeknights so much easier and free you from frequent trips to the store.

We have some delicious things on the menu for this week, and I can't wait to share a few new recipes with you:

Monday: Cajun Shrimp Pizza (I made homemade pizza dough last night and will make a homemade sauce after work today. This is our first time to try this, so I hope it turns out OK!) with Mandarin Orange Salad.
Tuesday: Heather Bradford's Chicken Spaghetti from the Frozen Dinner Swap. (Doesn't it seem like there are a zillion ways to make chicken spaghetti?! This will be a new recipe for me, which I'll post with some other chicken spaghetti recipes I've used)
Wednesday: Buffalo Chicken Strips with Zucchini Chips
Thursday: Pulled Pork Tostadas (The brining is set to begin Wednesday morning! This is a process, but it's worth every step.)
