Menu Monday and Weekend Scenes

Happy Monday, hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Rowan and I are off to her swim lesson splash around time this morning, but wanted to share our weekly menu and tell you about our weekend.

Menu first...

Monday- Italian Wedding Soup and Cheese Panini
Tuesday- Chicken Enchiladas
Wednesday- Homemade Broccoli Mac n' Cheese
Thursday- leftovers
Friday- City Year Rhode Island event
Saturday- out for Mother's Day Eve dinner
Sunday- hosting Mother's Day Brunch

I'll share our Mother's Day Brunch menu later this week, I have a few ideas, but need to work on it!

Now onto our weekend, Mr. PS was off to his annual guy's weekend in Little Compton, Rhode Island and the kids didn't have much going on so we took advantage and headed to Nantucket.

We took the 8:00pm slow boat over Friday night so everyone was wiped out by the time we made it home a little after ten.  I was up bright and early Saturday morning to get some fresh Downyflake donuts and check out the brand new Stop & Shop.  If you're familiar with Nantucket, there's a newly remodeled Stop & Shop (formerly Grand Union) downtown near the harbor and there is one mid-island that was built in the 1960s that was just too small and didn't have sufficient backroom storage to accommodate the demand during the summer months.  They built the new one just feet away from the existing store and will tear down the old one on the next couple of weeks.

Once the kids were up and fed I headed out for a run, we live off one of the bike paths so I have a great 4 mile running loop that doesn't require dealing with crossing roads and traffic.  Once I got home and cleaned up we took off to do some errands and hit downtown.

Daffodil Festival Weekend was last weekend so we enjoyed all of the daffodils in bloom without any crowds or hoopla.  We hit a few of our favorite spots including Something Natural for some fresh bread to bring back to the mainland.  Rowan checked out the daffodils around their boat "run ashore".
We decide to pop into Petticoat Row Bakery to grab some cupcakes for dessert...
 and then cruised downtown enjoying the sunshine and quiet streets!
We opted for some take-in Italian Saturday night and watched the Kentucky Derby.  Sunday I was up early again so that we could shut the house down and catch a 12:30pm fast ferry.  Mr. PS met us in Hyannis where we stopped for lunch.  We hit Pizza Barbone on Main Street.
I would describe it as upscale casual with a nice selection of artisan pizzas.  They serve beer and wine as well.
 There are plenty of tables and counter seating in view of their brick oven.
We tried their Soppressata Pizza, Margherita Pizza and Sweet Sausage Pizza.  Everyone raved about the crust!
I enjoyed a salad special with arugula, asparagus, pine nuts and grapefruit with wood roasted chicken on top.
Should you find yourself in Hyannis, Pizza Barbone is well worth a stop!
