Weekend Recap & Menu Planner

Phew! Where did Saturday go? Michael left for Blackburg to see the Hokies play at 8 am yesterday and Camille, Clyde and I hopped in the car shortly after and dined on donut at Martins, then headed to Carter Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville. I thought a few times..."am I completely crazy to take a 2 and 4 year old on a road trip to an apple orchard by myself?". I guess not because it went really well. We had a lot of fun with C & C being very well behaved. We went on a hayride, picked a bunch of pink lady apples and ate apple donuts (yes...our 2nd donuts of the day...no judging).

We made it home in time for Clyde to get a quick nap, then we were off to my nephew, Winters, 3rd Birthday. More sugar was in store with cupcakes and a pinata!

The birthday boy in his fireman costume which he wore the whole time!

Cute cupcakes with toppers from etsy.com

Yum! More sugar!
And now to the pinata that would not break!

Here it is...cute firetruck pinata!
Birthday boy takes the first shot!

Clyde gets in on the action.

Now after every other child swings at it 2 or 3 times, Kate tries to break it open.

No luck. Now tries Ross!

Finally...it starting to break and we pulled it open and candy fell! Yes...more sugar.

Today, we have trick or treating at my grandmother's retirement community. Maybe, I should re-name this post, Sugar Weekend! And I am taking a barre fitness class. This my 3rd one and I am really enjoying it.

Here is this week's menu planner....

Sunday - Steaks with Goat Cheese & Red Pepper Sauce, Asparagus, Twice Baked Potatoes

Monday - Family Night at C & C's school and then Slow Cooker Chicken Gumbo

Tuesday - Mom's night out

Wednesday - Soft Taco's with Pineapple Sauce (I am going to use leftover pork shoulder that I have in the freezer for this instead of the beef)

Thursday - Over Chicken Risotto

Oh and Camille and I are going to try to make apple pie this week. So I will let you know how that goes.
