Menu Plan: Buried



And I still appear to be the rebel who doesn’t publish her meal plan on Sunday or Monday... ;)




Can you find me? I’m over here, buried under mountainous piles of snow. Oh, and it’s snowing again as I type. LOVELY.


Actually, it IS lovely, but it’s also getting downright hazardous, since you can’t see worth beans at intersections. Eventually, you just run out of places to put the snow, you know? Add in mountains and hairpin turns and the roads become just a touch treacherous.


We’re hanging in there, though. Spring ALWAYS follows Winter, so I know there’s an end in sight. In the meantime, here’s what we’ve eaten and what we’ll be eating:



Breakfast– Cereal,  Apples, Milk (for the littles, before 7:30AM Mass)

Brunch– (brunch ended up being really late because my poor A. fainted while altar serving and I wound up going back for the later Mass since I missed communion while caring for my sweet little guy! <– run-on sentence, much? oy!)– Scrambled Eggs w/ Ham, Toast, Pineapple

D– Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s (We had a Hawaiian Pork & Cabbage dish that my whole family loves. Okay, my kids aren’t huge cabbage fans. But they still ate well. :) )



B–Cinnamon Sugar Oven Pancake (<– leftover from Saturday; that recipe makes a LOT), Ham, Kiwi, Milk

D–Homemade Taco Hamburger Helper, Corn



B–Egg Wraps, Milk

D–Asian Noodles w/ Chicken and Mixed Veggies



B–Maple Raisin Oatmeal, Milk

 D–Carnitas and Spanish Rice Soft Tacos



B–Deep-Dish Maple Apple Breakfast Pizza, Milk

D–Cheesy Beans & Rice (date night!)



B–Banana Cream Smoothies, Toast

D–Large Pepperoni Pizza, Medium Cheese Pizza



B–Breakfast Burritos, Grapefruit

L–Soup, Salads

D–Mystery Dinner Theatre at our church– this was priced $8/adult, $4/child, $20 max/family… because Catholics love big families!!! ;)


So that’s the plan around here! I’m so grateful to be tucked in warm and snug in my home. I’m also grateful for a plan that will keep us well-nourished. :)



What are you eating this week?

    Growing up, I remember multiple times when alter boys fainted. Why is that? Is it extra warm at the alter, multiple layers of clothes, maybe they don’t eat breakfast before mass?

    • I think all those things can play a part, Susan. I also think that incense can make people, especially children, light-headed and, of course, altar servers are right up there with the stuff. (We didn’t have incense on Sunday, but on the occasions we do.) In A’s case, it’s likely more his BP or arrhythmia, so we need to get that sorted out. But you’re right! He’s definitely not the first altar boy to hit the floor.
