Happy Menu Plan Monday, friends! So, my foot has a 5th metatarsal avulsion fracture. It should heal fine, but for the next four to six weeks, I’ll be sporting this walking boot. This leads to several changes in plans. Hopefully the girls can do a lot of help with watering/tending the garden. I’ll miss picking strawberries 🙁 I’m also using Click List at Kroger (I order online, then arrive at the store and they put my groceries into the trunk). I actually enjoy grocery shopping, so I’ll miss it. But for $4.99, it’s a good deal to have someone else do the legwork.
Daughter #2 offered to make two meals this week, which will be nice. Also, the big piano recital was yesterday, so piano lessons have ended for a while. After doing some online exercises for a few days (and going stir crazy), on Saturday I tried my stationary bike with the boot on, and it worked! Yay! If any of you have had a broken foot, ankle, etc., I’d love to hear any tips you gained!
Saturday morning, daughter #3 and I went to bonsai club for their spring show. A gentleman in the club helped her repot her root-over-rock plant. This guy is really interesting. He grew up with his missionary parents in Ecuador. If you remember the whole “Gates of Splendor” story about the missionaries who were killed there in the 1950s — slain pilot Nate Saint was the dad of Steve Saint, who was best friends with this guy while in high school.
Daughter #2 had her final dance recital, as a senior. She did an awesome job on her pointe solo, if I do say so 🙂
And, my annual piano recital was Sunday. This is one of my favorite events of the year, as the kids get an appreciative audience to hear them play. We had a bit of everything, from “Moves Like Jagger” to “An American in Paris” to a Bach-like invention by Billy Joel. Really fun week!
Here’s the menu plan for this final week of the school year:
Monday: Tuscan Chicken Soup — just tore it out of a magazine
Tuesday: leftover buffet — cleaning out the fridge
