Meal Plan Monday - Week 5

We had a really good weekend, of course it went too fast and was filled with too much work, but we had some fun stuff thrown in as well! Friday's chili cook-off for the wine club was a ton of fun, and we made the white chicken chili from the cooking class, which was a big hit. My sister and brother in law joined us as well which was also a lot of fun. Saturday was all work (I actually had to leave the party at 10 Friday night for a call and then work the rest of the night), but Sunday I put in some time and a couple of conference calls in the morning, but then the boys parents came over for a little bite for lunch and to see the house, they had not been here since early October, and then we headed out to see "The Marvelous Wonderettes" at the local Playhouse. It was a wonderful show, we all loved it. After the show, we headed to dinner at a Minneapolis landmark, Murray's Steakhouse, Home of the Butter knife Steak, so delicious. The boys parents had never been, it was his mom's birthday, so it was the perfect place to take them, and something to cross off of her bucket list. After dinner it was back to our house for some delicious carrot birthday cake and the Betty White Hallmark movie, Blue Valentine. What a great way to end the evening.

This week we have some plans, but I am also looking forward to maybe taking a step back from work, and enjoying some quiet nights at home, and then some plans towards the end of the week.
