Every summer, there’s a week of chaos. It’s that week when a million things seem to be happening and, while they’re all fun, it can also seem pretty wild and crazy as we rush here, there, and everywhere.
This is that week.
It doesn’t feel as bad as years past, however, and I’m not sure if that’s because our schedule is lighter or I’m just getting a touch better at managing the crazy. Either way, I’m not feeling stressed, but I am embracing the beauty of a simple menu plan!
Here’s what we’ve been eating and will be eating through the week–
B–Cheerios, Apples, & Milk for the littles, before 7:30AM Mass
L–Leftovers before heading to the beach!
D–We seriously ate all day. Chips and salsa. Meatballs. Veggie tray. Some wine. Strawberries. More chips. Burgers. Cookies and cream rice crispy treats. That salt air must have stimulated our apetites!! (It also made our children crash like rocks that night. )
B– Blueberry Muffins, Bacon, Mixed Fruit, Milk
B–Honey Corn Bread, Apple Slices, Milk
D–Chicken & Black Bean Burritos (Chicken & Rice for my bean-hating hubby.)
B–Cheerios, Yogurt with mixed berries
D–Cheesy Peas & Rice (date night)
B–PB Raisin Toast, Cranberry Juice
D–Tomato Soup, Cheese Bread
B–Wild Black Raspberry Muffins, Scrambled Eggs
B–Black Raspberry Oven Pancake, Bacon, Fruit
D–Penne w/ Crab & Jack Sauce
And, that’ll do it! Nothing super exciting happening, but that’s okay. Sometimes simple just needs to be the name of the game.
