This past weekend was my annual pilgrimage to Chicago with my stepdaughter, sister-in-law and niece. We started the weekend with some fun gifts from The Pleated Poppy:
We spent a few hours here:
I adore these girls! We found many treasures…like these awesome baskets…perfect for beach towels. I plan to use the smaller basket for sun tan lotion, extra hats and other lake supplies.
We ended our trip at Trader Joe’s. For those of you lucky enough to have one of these in your town, you know why this is part of the pilgrimage. We stocked up on all our favorites and this is what the car looked like:
I would say the trip was a great success and am already looking forward to next year!
It was back to reality today, but I was armed with my meal plan for the week:
Monday: Pork grillers, rice, salad and broccoli.
Tuesday: Whole wheat penne with pesto, chicken and sun-dried tomatoes, salad.
Wednesday: Grilled tilapia fish tacos with roasted corn salsa (Trader Joe’s).
Thursday: Layered taco bake (new recipe…if it turns out, I will share it with you next week).
Friday: Dad B’s bean soup in the crockpot
Saturday: Heading to Great Wolf Lodge for the weekend!
Have a great week!
