Menu Plan Monday

I am terrible about making menus and then never actually following them.  This week's menu consists of stuff I already have the ingredients to make, so hopefully it will work out.  

Monday - Black Eyed Peas, Collard Greens, Corn Bread
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Fruit Smoothies and Popcorn
Saturday - Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Salad
Sunday - Leftovers or Sandwiches

My mom visited last week and brought me a bunch of collards and kale from her garden.  We've had both so far and they are delicious, I especially love this recipe for Sauteed Kale.  Go here for more menu plans!

5 months

 Quinn is 5 months old already.  It hardly seems possible.  He is the sweetest baby, almost always happy and smiley and very social.  He is getting more and more mobile every day.  I can put him down on the floor in the middle of a blanket and turn my back for 2 seconds and he is off of it already, and turned 180 degrees in the opposite direction.  I think he secretly gets up and runs around the room when I'm not looking.  I gave him his first haircut a little over a week ago and I can't believe how much lighter in color his hair is.  You can't really tell in these pictures but he's looking more and more blond.  A couple weeks after I wrote his 4 month post I finally got around to taking him for his 4 month shots.  He got one in each leg and did not even cry with the first one, just looked at us like "You call that a shot?"  The second shot stung a little and he cried for about 2 seconds until the nurse said "Yay! Were done!" and then he laughed at her.  He's one tough little dude!  I love you buddy! - Mama
