Well, did not post our menu last week and actually did not stick to it much anyway:-) I cooked up some big meals over the weekend and we had leftovers a couple nights. Not used to the college kids getting together on Monday evenings - don't have to cook a meal for DD18 since they always have lots of goodies to eat there.

DD18 was in a fashion show on Friday evening - so she had dress rehearsal on Thursday (she grabbed something after that and DH and I ate leftovers) and then on Friday night DH and I met a niece for dinner before the style show and DD18, niece and I went out for fast food snacks after the show.
Last evening our adult Sunday school class had a picnic in a nearby park. We had grilled brats, pork steaks and chicken breasts and everyone brought side dishes. It was great! The weather was actually cool for this time of year. We all tried to stay in the sun to keep warmer and after eating everyone was scrambling for jackets, blankets - even beach towels - to stay warm. ( It felt good to see one of the mom's pull out the knitted blanket I made for her son to use as a shawl - glad to know they are using the blanket :-)
We had a great time. I took on of my favorite standbys - Marinated Vegetable Salad - and a new 'experiment' Cherry Dessert. I took a recipe I had that used canned peaches and modified it for cherry pie filling. They must have liked it because I only brought home a small portion as leftovers.

Need to get re-focused on meals and WW points this week. Will be hard since we are having a 'Food Day' tomorrow at work - Fifth Monday. I guess I'll start on Tuesday :-)
