Okay, so last weeks menu didn't exactly go as planned but we made it through.  The weather didn't exactly work for the Bruschetta Grilled chicken so I had Honey & Pecan Glazed Salmon and my potatoes weren't adequate size to use as a baked potato so for that I made a shepherds pie instead.  That was my first attempt at one and I thought it turned out wonderfully!

So, today is my birthday and I don't want to do much cooking.  We also will be leaving for the beach for Spring Break this weekend so this week will be kind of hectic so we're having quick easy meals.

Grilled Bruschetta Chicken (gonna to it today!!  or at least hubby is :) )
Pulled Chicken Suiza Sammies

That's all I'm planning for the week.  I might try to bake some bread for the first time this week!  Please pardon any typos or spelling errors.  My daughter is in my lap and loves moving the keyboard tray back and forth and back and forth and well, you get the picture... :)

So, hopefully we'll stick to it better this week but who knows?!?  Go on over to Org Junkie to see other recipes and meal plans.

Kristen at We are THAT Family hosts a blog carnival on Wednesdays with the theme Works For Me Wednesday where fellow bloggers post tips that... you'll never guess... WORK FOR THEM!!  You're so smart!  So anyway, here's my WFMW tip on baby stains.

So, as a new mother I'm new to the newborn realm of stains on clothes.  And for mothers of breastfed babies you know what I'm talking about.  So, In my daughter's room I have her clothes hamper right next to her changing table.  And sitting within arms reach on her dresser... drum roll please....  my bottle of stain remover!!  Yep, it's a novel idea, I know!  I use Zout and I fully believe it has magical stain lifting powers.

So, when I have to change my daughter and there's a messy mess, I grab the Zout, spray it on her clothes right then and toss them in the hamper.  Then when I'm ready to wash I just toss them in the washer.  I don't have to worry about the stain setting in and remembering to put something on it when I do the laundry.  And the majority of the time the stain comes out without any further treatment.  Hey, it woks for me!

So, stroll on over to the WFMW post on Kristen's blog and read through the TONS of posts for tips on all sorts of stuff.

I've been following Menu Plan Monday at Org Junkie where over 400 people post their weekly menus.  I'm finding that it's been a big help to plan out our meals for the week because when it's time to cook dinner I'm not standing in the kitchen scratching my head wondering 'what's for dinner.'  So, here's my menu for the week in no particular order:

Chicken Pot Pie
Grilled Bruschetta Chicken (if I can get up the nerve to grill chicken myself)
Spaghetti for the masses
Cheeseburger Twice Baked Potatoes
Leftover Buffet
So...  I'm new to this whole blog thing.  Since I've become a SAHM, I've started to read several different blogs mainly about crafty stuff and recipes.  So, I thought it was only fair to start one of my own.  I mean, the world is filled with bloggers so why not jump on the bandwagon right? 

I'll try to share recipes, maybe some pics of the food here and there, and reviews as well as talk about the funny things that happen in my life.  If you've ever met my husband, you're already shaking your head thinking of all of the crazy stuff that will be posted on here about him...
