Menu: Week 53

Team Henderson had an adventure in camping this holiday weekend. We've never taken the baby, and I wasn't sure how he would do. It was just as I thought. He woke up around 2:30am wanting a bottle. Go figure. Other than the little rascals being super tired the next day, they had fun.

The bad thing that happened was, my phone got stepped on in the middle of the night and I had to get a new one. I liked that phone and wasn't really planning on spending the money for a new one. Life likes to throw things at you when you least expect it. :)

Well, despite the long weekend and the never ending tiredness, I've managed to get the menu done and go grocery shopping with the monster in toe. Enjoy.

Monday 
- Biscuets and gravy

Tuesday
- Ranch chicken tacos

Wednesday
- Cajun chicken alfredo

Thursday
- Baked Parmesan spaghetti

Friday
- Chow Mein with chicken

Saturday
- Cheese pizza

Sunday
- Dinner with the in-laws
