Menu Plan: 5/13 – The Weekend Wore Me Out


Have you ever had one of those weekends that, while fun, leaves you utterly exhausted at the end? A weekend when, quite frankly, you’re ready for the regular routine of the workweek to begin? Yep, there’s where I’m at. A massive hike on Saturday and a busy Mother’s Day have left me feeling lost and behind. All fun stuff, mind you! But I need to get back on schedule. (And, ahem, get the two-year-old back to napping.)



B: Cheerios, Yogurt, Juice

L: Baked Omelets, Mini Crescent Rolls, Mixed Fruit, Coffee, Juice (brunch at my sister and BIL’s– I did nothing.)

D: Burgers and Fries from Clamp’s, a little walk-up dive not far from our home– very tasty, very popular



B: Tea & Crumpets Oatmeal, Apples, Milk

D: Chicken Soft Tacos, Salad



B: Creamsicle Oatmeal, Milk


D: Pepperoni & Ground Beef Lasagna Casserole, Green Beans



B: Bacon & Cheese Oatmeal, Oranges, Milk

D: Fettucine Alfredo w/ Broccoli & Shrimp (let’s just call this the day my husband weeps with gratitude)




B: Creamsicle Oatmeal, Oranges, Milk

D: English Muffin Pizzas, Fruit, Water (<– to go!  It’s baseball practice season.)



B: Strawberry OJ Slush, Toast

D: Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Pizza



B: Homemade Donuts & Fruit

L: Chicken Noodle Soup, Jello (<– I realize this makes us look like we’re sick, but we’re not. The kids just love it after the baseball game.)

D: Grilled Burgers on homemade challah rolls, Pickles, Corn




And that’s the plan around here!  


What’s your favorite thing on your menu plan this week?  


** Fun project alert!!**   In June, I will be experimenting by eating only foods native to those countries from which my ancestors come– in my case, Norway and Germany– for one week.  I already have a few adventurous souls who will be joining me in trying this out.  I’m calling it “Eating by Ancestry.”  Interested?  I would LOVE to have you participate (and to add you to our Pinterest group board, if you’d like)!  Leave me a comment or drop me an email.  Or comment on this FB post (more details can be found there, as well):
