Monday Math and Menu Plan

Happy Monday my friends! We had such a busy and fun weekend that I wish I had more time to share with you all the excitement and fun, but we spent a lot of time in the sun, at the movies and of course together! Today brings a new week that we are looking forward to and I plan on sharing some fun tips and good times we had .
Play as though playing real UNO, though before putting your card down onto the existing stack, multiply the 2 numbers! For younger players, they can add or subtract the 2 numbers. Fun and so simple to play!
♥ Making Math Fun! ♥
My 7 year old is mastering his multiplication tables and in a way for him to do well on his timed tests, we play games to help him learn them! Can be played alone of with many people!

This one is so simple and only uses a 2 dice, graph paper a marker and colored pencils (Number of pencils varies based on how many are playing). Make sure at least 1 die goes to 9 or both can go to 9 or however high or low you would like to start with.

Roll the dice and multiply the 2 numbers in your head. Say answer aloud and then begin working on the graph paper. Mark the boxes across from 1 die and then mark the boxes down from the second die to make a box. Color in the entire area and then count each and every box colored. Is the answer the same as what you worked out in your head? Write the correct answer in the box you colored. At the end of the game, each person adds up their boxes and the one with the highest area covered (or highest score) on the paper wins!
Monday: Grilled Chicken Salad with Homemade Greek Dressing
Tuesday: Polish Sausage and Potato Pancakes with Green Beans
Thursday: Keema Aloo served over Jasmine Rice with Naan
Friday: Avocado Ham Sandwiches with Homemade Pasta Salad for our Picnic in the Park with Movies!
Avocado Egg Salad is my Healthy Alternative to Egg Salad!

Swap out the Mayo for Avocado and then add in some cilantro and a squirt of lime and it's so delish!
My children like to eat it with cucumber slices. 
12 Eggs
2 Avocados
Chopped Cilantro
Juice of 1/2 small lime
1 celery stalk chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
Dash of Paprika
Mix all ingredients together to desired consistency. Serve on rolls or with veggies!
Enjoy every minute my friends and have a wonderful week!
