Meal Planning Monday: Upside down.


Hey HAY.

Welcome to the zoo!

Monkies EVERWHERE!



It's been too hot to play outside, so the girls have no choice but to entertain themselves indoors while I am busy packing boxes and disassembling our existence. We are in full fledged move MOVE MOVE mode! 




This house will be officially sold in a week. I'll post a house tour soon, with all of our before/after work. We didn't do a TON of work in this house, but we spruced it up a bit and I'm pleased. I enjoyed our (rather short) time living here. She was a good home, this one.  I always meant to post a full house tour for memory's sake, but never got around to it. Luckily, working with my realtor finally forced me to methodically clean each room, take a photo, and fantasize over how it actually could have looked like that on a regular basis, that is if none of us ever actually lived inside. Sighhhh.

Speaking of unrealistically clean, how much do we HATE selling houses? SOOOO MUCH. Next time, I'll invest in a good, portable Xanax drip to stave off the nervous breakdowns. Trying to keep the house spotless at all times for potential buyers is nothing but insanely, impossibly, torturous cruelty for a mother. BBBBleh! My realtor got all uncomfortable and squirmy as I was trying to explain how the peanut butter smears on the wall really give the house character. Dontcha think? It's like a shabby chic sandwich in here? no?

 Whatever.










You have a great week, friends.

Meal planning is minimal, and involves a slow cooker more than once. These are on our list for the week:

Dinner Entrees:





And some snack ideas for the hooligans:



*Fresh peach milkshakes
no recipe needed. Just blend milk, vanilla ice cream, and peaches.
 (go heavy on the fresh peaches - its that time of year!)
Or go extra healthy/vegan with a twist: substitute coconut milk/coconut ice cream.

(my girls won't eat plain bananas, but will devour them if I doctor em up. ya gotta start somewhere folks. no shame, no shame at all.)
