Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, and aunts out there!
Can you believe it’s mother’s day already? I swear we just rang in the new year! I know it’s so cliche to talk about the passage of time and how fast or slow it goes, but seriously, May? Already!?
We’re finally getting some phenomenal weather here in WNY, which makes me a happier person, plus it gives us the opportunity to get out and play, or RUN, which has become Emmett’s favorite. 🙂 He must get that from his dad, because even when I’m in shape to run, it’s never my favorite workout, whereas Seamus truly enjoys running, AND looks forward to it.
Alright, so you’re probably checking in to see what we have on the menu for this week. We had a few carry-overs (again) because we just didn’t feel like cooking one day so we ordered pizza, and then on Friday my mom and sister came up for Mother’s Day tea at Emmett’s day care, so we all ordered in.
So let me stop babbling and get to the menu…
Sunday: Hot Dogs (on the grill) & fries (one of my fave meals, for my special mother’s day)
Monday: Marinated Chicken & Zucchini
Tuesday: BBQ Pork Loin & Baked Potatoes
Wednesday: Spaghetti (with GF noodles – it’s our first time trying them, so I’ll let you know how they go) & Meatballs
Thursday: Homemade Pizza (carry-over)
Friday: Salmon Teriyaki & Asparagus (carry-over)
Saturday: Steak, with Chickpea & Tomato salad (again, I CANNOT get enough)
Seamus and I had a pretty easy time pulling our menu together this week, and we shopped on Saturday so that we didn’t have to worry about it on Sunday (because it’s Mother’s Day and I’m hoping to get spoiled). 😉 And the added bonus is that it’s a menu I’m pretty excited for! Woohoo!
As usual, I’m linking-up with Laura from Mommy, Run Fast! and Jill from jillconyers.com.
What fun things are you doing for Mother’s Day?

Thanks, Laura! I hope you have an amazing day.
So happy to be grilling again!
Happy Mother’s Day 🙂
We love grilling at my house. We’ll grill everything we possibly can, before using the oven, when it comes to summer.
Happy Mother’s Day! I have been in a bit of a rut when it comes to creativity in the kitchen…homemade pizza definitely sounds good!
I love homemade pizza! It’s easy to make, plus when I all I want is pizza, making it homemade is much healthier and cheaper. Thanks for visiting!
Your steak, chicken, and salmon meals all sound so fantastic! Hope you had a fantastic Mother’s Day 🙂
They’re so so good, Yuliya! I definitely recommend the steak, w/ chick pea and tomato salad. It’s amazeballs!
