This week’s easy weekly dinner menu features Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff, Kale and Quinoa Salad, Pesto-Stuffed Pork Chops, and lots more!
How has your week been? Mine has been OK, but yesterday was NUTS! In the morning, I met a friend with our little ones at a playground, and we watched a cop bust two kids for skipping school across the street. He talked to them for quite some time and made lots of phone calls, apparently calling their parents, who had to come get them! While we were watching that drama unfold, there was a really weird lady sitting on a bench right outside the playground scowling and staring at the play structure where our kids were playing, and my son started crying that he was scared of her. Before we left, a guy carrying a really heavy bag and looking suspicious cut through the park, and I wondered if he just robbed a house across the way or something. I was very ready to get the heck out of there!
Fast forward a couple hours, and we went to pick up my older son from school. We decided to go to Target (my favorite place), and what happens when we get there? A non-employee wrestles a guy on the ground for a couple minutes while the security guard stands next to them taking pictures. The guy finally got away and ran off! Not only was the wresting upsetting for my boys, seeing the bad guy get away wasn’t very comforting either!
Needless to say, I was happy to get home yesterday after all that. I had kind of forgotten about all the crime drama until my husband checked his email this morning and said their office was broken into last night! What is going on?? I am wishing you a very safe and calm weekend, my friends!
Let’s forget about all that and talk about food, which always makes me feel better. Today I have a lineup I think you will really love! We’ve got a wide range of dishes from comfort food to healthy salad to a quick sandwich. Dig in!
