Menu Plan: 6/17 – Ravioli for my birthday!


Well, I did it! I stuck to a Norwegian/German menu plan all last week. I’ll write a whole post about my take-aways from that but, for now, let me just leave it at this:


I am SO sick of fish. Also? Potatoes. Sick of them!!!!


So, this week, other fare is making its way back into the plan, and I am so excited to have rice, pasta, and tortillas back in my world. My birthday is this week and I plan on gorging on ravioli… I have mad-love for cheese-filled pasta.


Here’s what we’re serving up!



B: Cheerios, Applesauce, Milk (for the kiddos, before Mass)

Brunch: Ham, Egg, & Cheese Pockets, Strawberries, Apple Juice

Lunch: Trail Mix and Apples out on the trail

D: He STILL hasn’t told me. Shrimp? Pork? I’ll make whatever he wants. :)



B: Tea & Crumpets Oatmeal, Apples, Milk

D: Hay Stacks w/ lettuce from the garden



B: Candy Shop Oatmeal, Milk (It’s our first day of summer break! Time to celebrate!)

D: Tater Tot Casserole, Green Beans



B: Maple Raisin Oatmeal, Milk

D: Ravioli, Broccoli


B: Caramel Apple Oatmeal, Milk

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



B: Vanilla Maple Smoothies, Baked Apples

D: Meat Lovers’ Pizza (hubby’s request)



B: Pancakes, Sausage Links, Fruit

L: Mac & Cheese, Jello

D: Ham & Chicken Crepes




And that’s the plan around here!  


–  I have completed my week of this project, but there’s still time to join in!– 

** 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):
