On the Menu Monday (MPM) - Week 2 - 2016

I am going to try to get back to regular blogging and get myself on a regular schedule. I told myself that this would start last week. As you can see that didn't really work out all that well. But I do want to try to focus on it a little more. 
We had a great weekend. Nice relaxing Friday evening with a big ol' glass of red and our first roaring fire of the winter. 
Saturday we went to friends for a Thai dinner and a showing of their pictures from their Vietnam/Thailand vacation. It was a lot of fun and everything was fabulous! 
Sunday we started the day out with brunch with my sister and brother in law, hit up a local brewery for the first half of the Vikings play off game and then back to our neighborhood to our friends Paul and Grace's for the second half. 
It was a great day, even though the Vikings lost! Such a huge bummer!
This week we don't have a ton of plans, but I do want to get back to regular meal planning. 
Plans - Home, laundry, dinner out
Breakfast - It is really cold here this week, so some nice hot granola will hit the spot. I like the ginger flavor with some granola and walnuts.
Lunch - I made a ham this past Friday, which makes great leftovers and I found this great recipe for Mac and Cheese Soup with Ham, SO GOOD! Try it if you get a chance! 
Dinner - Out, Lord Fletchers. We have a groupon that is expiring Tuesday, so we need to use it!
Plans - Neighborhood Bunco! I look forward to this night every month! Such a fun group of girls!
Breakfast - Eggs with spinach and ham.
Lunch - Leftovers, whatever I can find in the fridge. 
Dinner - Bunco, whatever people bring!

Plans - We have not gotten ourselves out to that many movies lately, and the Oscar nominations are coming up, hoping we get to see the majority of them before the awards show. We are heading out to happy hour and to a movie with friends.
Breakfast - Frittata with tomatoes, spinach, bacon and cheese. 
Lunch - Mac and Cheese soup.
Dinner - Out to HH at Jake's with friends and then to the movies to see Revenant. Looks like it might be a little suspenseful but I will manage!

Plans - Home, catch up on DVR
Breakfast -Fruit with cottage cheese
Lunch - Out
Dinner - We have a couple of Hello Fresh and some Home Chef meals that need to be cooked up. So tonight is Italian Ciabatta Burgers. We love these meals. 

Plans - Friends/Neighbors for HH.
Breakfast - Sunnyside up eggs with bacon.
Lunch - Leftovers
Dinner - HH snacks. Whatever I wind up pulling together. 

Plans - Scott's cousins daughters 2nd birthday party during the day. 
Breakfast - Frittata with spinach, tomato and cheese.
Dinner - Out most likely

Plans - No plans yet, we may try to catch another movie. 
Breakfast - Whatever we can round up in the fridge.
Lunch - Maybe out while we run errands. 
Dinner - This time of year I really like to make something like a stew or something braised on a Sunday. This looks like the perfect Sunday menu.
