It’s that time of week! The Tuesday menu plan is back again this week…
We had temps pushing 50 over the weekend and, for New England, that is a pure gift in March! Yes, I know some of you Southerners saw 70s and, while I can’t deny that sounds gorgeous, I wouldn’t trade places with you in a few months. ;)
We’re in the midst of Lent for the next several weeks, which means that all Friday pizzas will be meatless for awhile. Truly, this is not a huge sacrifice, but it does force us to be more mindful and, at the end of the day, I have to think there’s some value in that, too.
I told you all last week that I was going to be trying something new with weekday breakfasts and, thus-far, it’s working out pretty well. My middle child is doing a better job of getting a solid meal in before school and I’m less frustrated with the whole experience. We’re going to stick with this new method at least for the month. Then I’ll decide what to do, moving forward…
And, now, here’s the plan for this week!
Breakfast– Cherry Granola, Pears, Milk (for the littles, before 7:30AM Mass)
Brunch– Broccoli, Egg, & Cheese Potato Skillets (these are so affordable to make, well-liked, AND get veg into breakfast food– winning!)
D– Sunday Supper at B & P’s– Rotisserie Chicken and all the sides!
B–Toast, Scrambled Eggs, Pears, Milk
D–Tomato Tortellini Soup, Bread
B–Toast, Eggs, Milk, Berries
D–Cheesy Peas & Rice (date night!)
D–Pulled Pork Sandwiches (my parents blessed us with this last week, but I had to put it in the freezer because I had other stuff thawed already!), Carrots
B–Toast, Eggs, Milk, & Fruit
B–Scrambled Eggs, Cinnamon Scones, Oranges
L–Salad, Bread, Apple Slices
If you really look at it, four out of seven of those dinners are meatless. I find this happens a lot for us during Lent. We do have lots of egg breakfasts, though, so I’m not too worried about lack of protein.
What are you eating this week?
