What's cooking this week?

My parents are moving down here, VERY soon! My Dad has already started his new job and will be staying with us until my mom closes on the house in NY. THEN they can close and move into their beautiful house down here in Florida (it's just minutes away, omg)! Oh, I can not wait to help get them settled. For now though, we've been enjoying vacation mode!

When you have a guest in the house it's easy to stray from a healthier meal plan. Not only that, a lot of time visitors equate to eating out a lot more! I'm making an effort to avoid that, but this week my plan isn't as light as I would have hoped. I changed it up so many times, I may be overthinking things...I decided to leave it as is and bulk up the sides with veggies and salads. On the heavier meal nights (such as tonight), I'll have to pace myself. This creamy vodka sauce recipe does sound heavenly though! 
Sunday: Penne ala Vodka - with chicken and a side salad
Monday: Margherita Pizza
Tuesday: Dijon Pork Loin with Lemon Green Beans and salad
Wednesday: Steak for the boys....Mamma is having a girl's night!
Thursday: Bowties with Tomesto Sauce
Friday: Tacos!

It has been awesome having Gramps in town....how cool is it that at this point we can say he's down here for good!!! Now we need to countdown for when Grandma gets here, she needs to join in on the Florida fun...SO SOON!
 Good thing Grandpa is so good at sharing! This girl loves having her Gramps around! 

I'm not sure what the rest of the day holds for us, maybe some blackberry picking at a farm around the corner...I hear they have awesome watermelons too! It's getting HOT out, so I better get moving!

Happy Sunday!!!
