On the Menu Monday (MPM) - Who knows what week it is?

Yep, completely MIA. Work has consumed a good part of my life. Again. We haven't had a wine event since January, we have hardly seen any movies, I haven't had a lot of time to plan meals and I haven't done a lot of cooking at home. We have had a couple of dinner parties, eaten at a few fun restaurants and done a ton of work on the house.

I need to get back to getting myself more organized and doing my meal planning. Putting a foot forward.

Here is how this week is shaping up!

Plans - Home, finishing up laundry, still working on turning over my closets and weeding through them. Finally decided to give up some of my Lilly and sent emails for it to be posted over at Shopaholics Preppy Closet
Dinner - Grilled pork chops along with tomato, cucumber and onion salad (nothing from the garden unfortunately)

Plans - Hoping to leave work at a decent time and go to a screening of White House Down at the West End
Dinner - Out on the go. Maybe Chipotle or Rojo or even sushi

Plans - The boy needs a haircut, we need to get the lawn mowed and I am hoping to work on the guest room some. IF I get out of work at a decent time and have a good day. I think my biggest problem is that I am in back to back meetings from 8 until 4 with no time for lunch even. So I need to have downtime when I get home. . .
Dinner - I roasted some tomatoes (that were going soft) with garlic, olive oil and basil, so I think I will make this (I would be so lost without Pinterest) Italian Chicken

Plans - Taking Miss Stella to the vet for her yearly appointment. This will be traumatic for her so we will just go home and stay with her.
Dinner - Burgers on the grill, tortellini pasta salad (not sure which one yet though but it will be off of my Pinterest Board)

Plans - Hopefully it will be nice and we will head out to dinner or HH somewhere.
Dinner - A deck somewhere.

Plans - Working on the yard, never ends! Going to HH at our neighbor Jenny's with a pool, looking forward to finding pool cocktail attire in my summer stuff. We have had such a weird summer so far, I still don't even have all of my summer stuff sorted out yet.
Dinner - I am going to bring an appetizer, I am thinking Blueberry Basil Balsamic Crisps

Plans - Canada Day (one day early) I need to think of something to bring to this as well. Hopefully it will be a nice day and we can just sit on the patio and veg.
Dinner - I am going to have to pick an appetizer out!

Here is a sneak peek at one of our projects. The upstairs hallway, I LOVE how it turned out!
