Happy Turkey Day! Are you like me, playing the Family Shuffle for the holiday! We're lucky that both our parents live within an hour of each other, so it's not TOO hard to make stops with both on the holidays. Except for the 2 1/2 year old, who will refuse to nap because of the excitement. Oh, and the 3 month old, who comes with a full set of luggage wherever he goes :) We love it though, the kids are overstimulated and exhausted by the end of the day but it's worth it!
This week I'm doing a lot more regular cooking, hubby has a short work week and we don't need to cook anything for the holiday. We never got to the Italian Chicken Skillet last week so it's back on the menu, plus I have a bunch of Macaroni Grill dinner kits that I want to start using (boneless chicken breast was $1.49/lb last week so I stocked up!)
Here's our table, don't forget to visit I'm an Organizing Junkie for tons of recipes and menu ideas!
