On the Menu Monday (MPM) - Week 13 - 2015

We started the weekend off mild and nice and ended it with about 10 inches of snow on the ground!

We spent Saturday turning more Parade of Homes, I love looking at the new builds and getting ideas. I am also happy when they have interior designers who have worked with the houses, love looking and getting ideas!

I love these floors, they are actually ceramic tiles. We are thinking about doing these downstairs once we finish that off. 

 Love these for counters too, I think they would look great with dark brown cabinets or white for our bar area. 

Saturday night we got together with friends for a fun game night. Scott and I have never played poker before, so we learned a couple of different games, had some wonderful food and got to catch up with some really great friends!

We have been getting siding bids, flooring bids and we are meeting with an architect to make some pretty radical changes to our house. I would love to do an addition as well, but that is not going to happen right now, but I am really excited to see the changes that we want to do get implemented. Hoping to start our project around the beginning of the summer and it looks like it will be about a 6 to 8 week project. Then of course there will be the landscaping, driveway and doctoring it all up. 

This week we have more estimates coming in this week, and here is how the rest of the week is shaping up. 

Plans - A visit to the chiro, we were rear ended lightly, a tap really, on Saturday and it threw me out a whack. Luckily we have an EXCELLENT chiro. Then out to eat!
Breakfast and Lunch - Bananas, peanut butter, granola and chicken poblano from TJ's (I picked up a few easy meals to throw together for lunch this week, I am so glad I did this, our leftovers are slim pickings).
Dinner - Lord Fletchers (we have not been in SO long, cannot wait!)

Plans - We have a company coming out for our 4th estimate for our house project, so I will need to whip something up quickly for dinner. 
Breakfast and Lunch - Banana, peanut butter and granola and a grilled chicken with lime green salad (thank goodness for Trader Joe's!)
Dinner - Creamy Spring Pasta I am going to add roasted turkey to this dish. We bought two rotisserie turkey breasts this past weekend, will be great to add to meals this week.

Plans - Scott is seeing the chiro after work, I might go into the office, I have an eye appt not far from the office, but I am debating. 
Breakfast and Lunch - depends on whether or not I decide to go into the office.
Dinner - Depends on whether or not I decide to go into the office. . . if I go in, we will probably go out to dinner. 

Plans - We have both a flooring estimate and someone coming back to deliver an exterior estimate.
Breakfast and Lunch - Cheese and turkey for breakfast and hopefully leftovers for lunch.
Dinner - Butternut Squash Carbonara and pork chops

Plans - We have friends coming for HH and to catch up
Breakfast and Lunch - Egg, bacon, and turkey with a green salad
Dinner - we are doing a bunch of different apps, hopefully I will post some of them later this week. 

Saturday and Sunday
Plans - This is the last weekend for Parade of Homes, so I will need to look at my book and make sure that we checked out all of the fabulous houses! It is also the Remodeling Showcase weekend, so I am sure we will check out a few of these. A week from Saturday, we have a Mad Men themed party on the books, so I will be getting ready for that as well, making sure we have the decor like we want it and planning the food and drink. 
Meals - not sure what we will be doing for meals this weekend, most likely out, its also the weekend before my birthday, so maybe something fun!
