Weekend Recap + June 20 Menu Plan

This past weekend, I got to spend a lot of time at my parents house enjoying company with good friends, my family and of course . . .good food. :) My mom and I hosted a neighborhood yard sale this weekend, so Friday and Saturday were both spent outdoors at the sale -- thank the Lord for beautiful yard sale weather and lots of great shoppers who bought a lot of our junk wonderful items. 

Saturday night, we decided to celebrate Father's Day early so my parents, Nathan and me all took my dad out to Bugaboo Creek Steak House. Nathan and I have never been, but I think we've found our new favorite steak joint! The decor was super cute - lodge style, and the food was delicious! 

Here are a few photos from our outing:

My sweet dad and mom 

Me & Nathan. And yes, he's giving me bunny ears - stinker!

We all ate way too much, but not enough that we couldn't stop by our favorite ice cream joint on our way back home. :) After ice cream, we mozied on back to my parents' casa where we gave my dad his gifts and rested our bellies. It was a perfect weekend, and I'm so glad I got to spend so much of it with my sweet family. 


Here's what's going down in kitchen this week . . .we're still renovating, so that explains all the sandwiches and grilled food! :)

Monday -- Leftover Enchilada Casserole from Sunday

Tuesday -- Steaks from the grill {new recipe I spied from Chef Anne!}, Potatoes & Side Salads

Wednesday -- {Meat Free} Egg Salad Sandwiches, Fruit Smoothies

Thursday -- Leftovers

Saturday -- Coffee Pancakes {new}
