Menu Plan Monday

For some reason I'm having a hard time coming up with a menu this week. We're super busy right now harvesting from all the produce we have coming in from the garden, which is a lot of work, but so worth it! We're getting a ton of zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, and by the end of the week, apples. So we're doing a lot of baking, preserving, and freezing. Here goes....we'll see how the week turns out!

Monday-- Not at home....

Tuesday-- Beef Stroganoff, Egg Noodles, Peas

Wednesday-- Pork Roast, Potatoes, Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Thursday-- Zucchini Lasagna ***Need much more zucchini, and don't add the peeling ends of the zucchini...too hard.***

Friday-- Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings ****YUMMY!!!!! Turned out GREAT!!!****

Saturday-- Grilled steak, grilled potatoes, grilled zucchini

New Pictures....Finally, I know!

I realized last week that I haven't taken many pictures of Dawson lately. He's growing and changing so fast! He's 5 1/2 months old now, and so much fun! His hair is growing like crazy.....he may have to have a haircut soon. :) Here are some fun facts about Dawson:

~He loves to eat bananas, but doesn't really like avacados......yet!
~He just started rolling from his back to front, and he's getting pretty fast at it!
~He's doing well sitting, but still needs support.
~He's teething like crazy, but still only has those first 2 bottom teeth that popped out at 4 months.
~He's on a 3 1/2 hour schedule, and sleeps like a rock at night! (praise God!)
~He's very ticklish and loves to play.
~He's in 12 month clothes, but not too sure how much he weighs....he sure feels heavy though!
~He's very happy and smiles most of the day.

And Camden is having a blast helping Papa with Harvesting. Yesterday he was on the combine with Papa harvesting wheat. After they filled the truck up, he even got to play in it!
