Well, hey, look what I did!
In very typical JL fashion, I had no idea what I was doing and probably sized this thing all wrong. Still, I like the idea of a graphic that actually says what I’m trying to do here (and doesn’t limit me to a day!)
If, at any point, you all get super sick of reading my menu plans, please do let me know. I’m going out on a limb and swimming against the current by putting these up since the blogging tide has definitely turned. I won’t be offended if you all tell me to “get with the program!”
It’s been a busy, fun week already. Here’s what we’ve been eating and what we’ve got planned as we reach the end of the month. This is when I start using up what we have, whatever that might be…
Breakfast– Cereal, Apples, Milk (for the littles, before 7:30AM Mass)
Brunch– Cinnamon Sugar Oven Pancake, Bacon, Applesauce
(A’s friend party! We just had chips, juice pouches, and cake for this one– easy peasy.)
D– Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s
Monday: (A’s 9th birthday! All meals at his request–)
B–Honey Nut Cheerios, Green Apples, Milk
D–Fettucine Alfredo w/ Shrimp, Carrot Sticks (<– ALL of my children request shrimp on their birthdays. Every single one of them. I find that kind of funny. It’s good, though, because my husband and I love shrimp, too!)
B–PB Oatmeal, Apple Juice
D–Pigs in Blankets, Corn
B–P,B,&J Sandwiches, Apples, Milk
D–Cheesy Beans & Rice (date night!)
B–Ham & Eggs w/ Salsa & Avocado, Milk
D–Chicken Noodle Soup, Grilled Tomato & Cheese
B–Vanilla Spice Smoothies, Toast
D–Large Pepperoni Pizza and Medium Veggie Pizza
B–Cinn. Roll Bread in <30 minutes, any leftover fruit
L–Salads (w/ assorted veggies and proteins), Pretzels
D–Rotini w/ Red Sauce, Green Beans
My kids have been salad FIENDS lately. I had a mutiny on my hands when I dared to run out of lettuce last week! My husband and I had to kind of laugh at their outrage over lack of salad. I also admit I got myself to the store within a day or two to rectify that situation. There are worse things to have children clamoring for, right?
So that’s the plan around here! It’s not the most exciting week, really, but it will use what we have and, hopefully, keep me from having to spend any more money. Well, that is until I go to the store to buy the ingredients for A’s FAMILY party, but that’s on Sunday. So you’ll have to wait for that plan.
What are you eating this week?
