Tuesday Tidbits and Menu Plan

Tuesday is my day to remember all the cute and funny things my kids have said and done lately!


While driving the other day, Dylan informed me, "Boys like hanging out and girls like laying in bed...you know, they like reading and doing dishes."


She calls wheat thins "wheat fins."

A recent conversation with her: "Hey Mom, let's talk about bones."

She calls a telescope a skeletope.

The other day, she started coughing. She told me, "I have the cough-ee's, too!


Our Menu Plan for the week (a day late):

Monday: Steak, Parsley Potatoes, Steamed Cauliflower/Broccoli/Carrots
Tuesday: Sweet and Sour Chicken over rice
Wednesday: Grilled Cheese and Cream of Tomato Soup
Thursday: Goulash over egg noodles
Friday: Dinner with my parents
Saturday: Stuffed Peppers, Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Green Beans
Sunday: Pork Chops, Rice, and Broccoli

Recipe of the week: Creamed Green Beans

Frozen or Fresh Green Beans

1. Steam green beans, then transfer to a pan.
2. Pour in about a half cup of milk.
3. Mix in 1-2 TBS of butter.
4. Cook on medium until sauce starts bubbling.
5. Stir in 1-2 TBS of flour (enough to make the sauce thicken). Cook 1 more minute, then serve.


  1. Haha! Dylan is so right. Minus the dishes part. ;)

  2. Oh my gosh. I love "skeletope." That is so cute.

    I hope you corrected Dylan and told him that girls definitely DO NOT like to do dishes and that a good man would do them for the woman! LOL

  3. Aww I love those little things the kids say! So cute, I wish I wrote down the cute things I have heard over the years. Becasue truth be told...you'll forget if you don't write it down. So kuddos to you for recording it all! So sweet.

  4. Love your menu planning.. those green beans sound delish! Kids say the funniest things and mine always do it best while we're driving!

  5. Your kiddos are too funny! All your meals sounds so good! So far we have had pizza and PB&J for dinner this week.

  6. Dylan is too cute - I love a good afternoon of laying around doing dishes :)


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
