Happy Star Wars Day! The kiddos celebrated by making paper light sabers…and preceding to “fight” to the death. Or until they ripped apart their light sabers. I think I must be the only one left in the world who has never watched the Star Wars movies. My husband thinks that it is a travesty; and immediately put on Episode 4. Which led me to argue, if they wanted me to watch it first, wouldn’t it be Episode 1? Big mistake! If you want a lecture of the correct order of Star Wars movies, just mention they should go in numerical order, and my husband will give you an ear full.
I can tell the school year is winding down. These next few weeks are filled with exams for me to proctor: AP this, AP that, the new graduation exams for Nevada (hopefully these go smoother than the SBACs they tried to implement last month and crashed the server). I’ve got high hopes for success, and if not, there is always wine waiting for me when I get home
On to this weeks meal plan. Have I ever told you why I don’t plan the weekends? Well, most weeks something goes awry and I have at least one idea left from during the week. And if not (which hasn’t happened yet in 2015) I figure I deserve a night out. Maybe when school is out…Hey, I can dream!
Monday: Broiled Hake Loins, Rice, and Broccoli
Tuesday: Pecan Honey Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, and Salad
Wednesday: Cheeseburgers, Potato Salad, and Carrots
Thursday: Sausage and Peppers over Gluten Free Pasta
Friday: Jack Chicken, French Fries, and Salad
I’ve linked up with Meal Plan Monday to help you get even more ideas to plan your week!
Its movie release night. Did you pre-order your tickets for the Avengers? If not, what are you waiting for? This is the summer blockbuster for 2015! I don’t expect a better action movie this year.
Cobie Smulders reprises her role as Agent Maria Hill; although I still have trouble thinking of her any anyone other than Robin Scherbatsky. As always, keep a sharp eye out for Stan Lee. After all what is a movie based off of marvel comics if not a chance for a Stan Lee cameo appearance?
If you are looking for a nice romantic movie, this is not your best bet. This is an action packed, explosion filled, fun time. With a laundry-list of familiar characters you are bound to feel right at home. Lots of intense sections of hardcore violence help make Ultron earn its PG-13 rating.
We are down to just over a month of this school year. Just like my students, I’m rejoicing just a bit. The countdown has begun (incase you were wondering there are 24 school days left in my district–minus semester exam days, which as everyone knows don’t count). Kickball is officially done for this year. Baseball is in full swing and Bubba Bear got to be catcher this weekend. I have never seen a happier little man!
On to this week’s meal ideas. I have to proctor ACT testing and a movie night (Avenger’s Age of Ultron) on Tuesday, Baseball Practice on Wednesday, a school field trip and girl scout meeting on Thursday, and a baseball game on Friday. I just keep repeating 5 weeks until summer, 5 weeks until summer.
Monday: Smoked Sausage, Broccoli, and Rice
Thursday: Hamburger Helper (homemade gluten free) I’m trying out this recipe this week
Friday: Grilled Chicken, Corn on the Cob, French Fries
Have an awesome week!
