playgrounds & meal planning

I am feeling a bit behind on everything... which is weird since I got an extra day off this weekend. I was hoping that I could write a post tonight saying that the house was clean, laundry was done, and fresh muffins were baked in preparation for easy breakfasts. None of that happened, and I'm feeling a little disappointed in myself.

We spent the morning at the Natures Playground at Assiniboine Park, which was wonderful! It didn't look anything like this photo, because it was completely packed full of kiddos. Soren loves watching at of the kids run around, and I'm sure he wishes he could do everything they do. We also walked past the duck pond and he LOVED the ducks!! He was dying to actually get in the pond, probably thinking it was a lake like the one he played in yesterday.

I'm trying to come up with some menu items for the week ahead, which is one of the tasks that I hate the most. I don't mind cooking (and I love baking) but planning what to eat every day is always a bit of a struggle for me. So far I've come up with Chicken Stir-Fry for tomorrow night, and then maybe chill on wednesday or thursday. It's supposed to rain all week, so warm comfort food will probably be good. Oh! I just remembered a recipe I wanted to try - tacos al pastor that I saw over on the blog Its the Little Things. When I saw this image I knew I had to try it!! Maybe meal planning isn't that bad, after all!
