Menu Plan Monday!

Ooooops!  Forgot to do this post on Monday!  No menu plan for this week as we'll be out of town half the week so we're just working on eating the leftovers in the fridge and using up anything that might go bad while we're gone.  Next Monday's will be late too.  Have a great weekend!

Menu Plan Monday!

This week in no particular order we're having:

Many beans chili con carne -   From the Company's coming cookbook.  I used to make my own chili not following and recipe but this is the only one I use now.
Rosemary dijon and pork chop dinner - from last week but wasn't made
Santa Fe chicken -  another Krafts kitchen recipe
Baked butter chicken - never made before but it's another from Kraft
Sweet n sour pork chops and peppers - Kraft again!  What can I say......they're usually quick recipes and good!

The rest of the dinners will be leftovers if there's any or something easy like chicken nuggets.

Baby and You Blog Tour

When you're a parent or caregiver of little ones it's nice to have somewhere to go to for advice on potty training, teething or what kinds of foods to feed the kids.  That's where websites such as Baby and You are helpful.  Baby and You is a facebook community created by Loblaws for moms, dads and any caregivers looking for a family-friendly place to talk about anything.  Most of us are probably already visiting facebook everyday anyway so stop by and say hi or ask a question.  They even offer exclusive savings and promotions from time to time.  Check back in early September for something exciting to do with Joe Fresh!

The Baby and You page website has a page called Mom Talk which features a Canadian blogger Mommy Moment.  She focuses on everything mom related.  Another page called Baby Talk features another Canadian blogger Lisa from Growing Your Baby and she talks about anything baby related.  Stop by and join in on the conversations!

As a mom of a 22 month old and a 2 month old I find myself stuck at home a lot and with many of my friends working I'm online a lot building online friendships with other parents and looking for advice or just good conversation.  I'm glad that Mom Central  let me know about this great community and gave me the opportunity to spread the word and join in on the fun!

Disclosure – I am participating in the Baby and You program by Mom Central Canada on behalf of Loblaw Companies. I received compensation as a thank you for my participation. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Meal Plan Monday!

It's that time again and I"m a little late again as tonights dinner is already done and took me almost no time at all!

Slow cooker lasagne - from Crock Pot Girls on facebook
saffron couscous and chicken nuggets and veggies
chicken and broccoli casserole
cheesy chili pasta - not sure where it came from
rosemary dijon and pork chop oven dinner

I used a lot of recipes from the Kraft kitchen website as they are usually quick and easy recipes.
