Hope everybody had a good holiday celebration with their friends and families! We went and visited my inlaws and went swimming in their recently fixed swimming pool.

Last week we made Giada’s Chicken Parmesan… MmmMMM!! It was soo good! We used marinara sauce that we purchased instead of making our own, and it came out delicious enough. Even Big Daddy ate it (and he’s a picky eater, ya know.) I definitely want to make it again sometime. Also, if we have time this week, I am going to try to make these delicious sounding Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert one day.

I didn’t do any blogging yesterday, so today here is my menu plan for the rest of this week.
