Relaxing weekend

Friday night we went to In Japan--the new Japanese Steakhouse restaurant in town--with some colleagues from work. It was a great night!! Then, Saturday we stopped by the Open House our realtor was having on the flip property we just finished in Denton. She had a lot of people threw the house and there were 3 showings today. I hope we get a contract soon!! We were then able to relax that afternoon and took a 2 hour nap! Wow, that felt great. We ate dinner at home then went to Dairy Queen for some ice cream and Red Box to rent I Love You, Man.

This morning, we surprised a friend for brunch at Clearview in Cambridge to celebrate her Birthday. It was a delicious Champagne brunch, that I look forward to going back to again soon!! Her husband did a nice job of surprising her with our company...we had a great time!!

Now, I am relaxing, AGAIN, finishing up my Book Club book. This month we are reading Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann. I am near the end and love how it is all starting to come together. We neet Wednesday night, and I can't wait. We don't stay on the book topic too long ; )

Hope your weekend was just as relaxing!!

Meal Plan for the week

I have been really SLACKING recently with posts....but for now, here is our meal plan for the week. I have been so good with the grocery bill (more on that later), that I haven't had to shop this week, at all!!

Saturday: Chicken Georgia with mashed potatoes

Sunday: crockpot pulled pork, Stouffers mac & cheese, cucumbers and onions

Monday: grilled tuna steaks, mashed potatoes, salad

Tuesday:pork chops, stuffing, green beans

Wednesday: On your own....BOOK CLUB

Thursday:stuffed chicken breast (tomato and mozzarella),brown rice, green beans

Friday:shepherds pie

**Shepherd's Pie Recide**
This is the easiest recipe ever....
1 lb. ground beef
Vegetable Beef Soup
Salt and Pepper

Brown ground beef in a skillet. Drain any excess fat (depending on what kind of ground beef you buy). Add the vegetable soup and simmer. Cook potatoes in seperate pan. I ususally use 3-4 medium sized for the 2 of us. Mash...we love our Kitchen Aid mixer for this...lots of butter, salt and pepper and some milk. Put the ground beef mix in an oven safe with mashed potatoes and take a fork and drag across to texture the top. Bake in the oven at 400°F for about 30 minutes (or until the top of potatoes are just a little crusty).
