Meal Plan 05.09.10

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on May 9, 2010

First and foremost, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

We’re spending the morning with the in-laws. Well, actually, Eli is spending the morning with them. I’m enjoying some peaceful blogging time. For dinner we’re heading to my mom’s house for lasagna (mmmmm) and lemon bars for dessert.

Since it’s mother’s day, I want to give a shout out to my mom for instilling a love of cooking in me. Even though I didn’t actually realize it until I became a SAHM, I LOVE cooking. Especially baking. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

And to Dad-oo’s mom, for raising such a wonderful, thoughtful and caring man. He’s such a good husband, a fantastic father, and my best friend. Wait, this isn’t Father’s Day, why am I gushing about him?

Of course I can’t forget the one who made this into Mother’s Day. My handsome, sassy and lovable little boy. Who showered me with chocolate and kisses today.

Oh, and this is what we had for breakfast this morning:

@Vicki, Awesome! Let me know how they turn out. I love to hear it when readers try my recipes.

Your meal plan sounds great. We haven’t grilled fish in a long time, I need to add that to my plan soon.

@Sherry, They were good the next day too. I’m thinking about adding them to my weekly menu plan. Although, that may not be the best idea. :-)
