Handiwork, Help with Menus, and a Horrible Diet Week

I hope you all had a great weekend. We had lots of funny visiting with family. Going to the reunion, with tables full of good food, didn't help my diet cause. Although, I only ate one small piece of pound cake and tried to watch what I ate. Apparently that pound cake meant I added a pound and I watched what I ate show up on the scale. For all my work last week, I lost a whopping eight-tenths of one pound. But I shall not give up. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming as the blue fish says.

I thought I'd show y'all my little apron I made yesterday. My little one and I were at home with sore throats and I found the material for it while digging through some of my craft things. I figured it was the right time. It's just one of those simple ones that you buy and just cut out. I got it in a pile of craft stuff at a yard sale. My younger son came in from outside and I showed it to him. Here's our conversation--

Me: "Hey bud, want to see what I made?"
Ry: "What's it for?"
Me: "It'll be my Thanksgiving apron."
Ry: "What! You can't wear that for Thanksgiving!"
Me: "Why not? What's wrong with it?"
Ry: "You might spill food on it. You can't mess up a work of art!"

Y'all, the boy was seriously concerned, and he called it 'a work of art'. I can promise that it's not, but it sure was sweet to hear.

Here's what I have planned for supper this week. I promise not to wear my special apron, lest I soil it. =)

Monday--Perfect Beach Shrimp, Rice, Hot Pecan Peas, Oranges
Tuesday--Meatball Subs, Salad, Macaroni & Cheese
Wednesday--Brunswick Stew, Texas Cornbread Sticks, Pear Cobbler
Thursday--Crunchy Parmesan Chicken Tenders,Glazed Carrots, Fried Potatoes, Applesauce
Friday--Ham, Hashbrown Casserole, Green Beans, Rolls
Saturday--Homemade Pizza

Some of the best words come out of the mouth of a child. No doubt your little one appreciates you and your work. I wish I lived closer and drop by for that good sounding meal.

That would be so much fun! And yes, they do say the sweetest things. They tell me everyday, "Your'e the best mommy in the universe." Who couldn't love their life when they hear that?
