This week is an exciting one! Not only do we get to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, but we get to celebrate the official first day of Spring come Friday. Woo hoo to THAT!
I am the only non-Irish one in this household (though my fake red hair fools a fair number of people ), but that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in celebrating! I like these “little” holidays, to be honest. I’m not a fan of going all over the top but, let’s face it– it doesn’t take a whole lot to bring smiles and delight. I love that!
So here’s the plan for this fun and happy week:
B–Cereal, Appkes, Milk ( before 7:30AM Mass)
Brunch– Pancakes, Sausages, Grapefruit
Mid-afternoon Snack– Shamrock Shakes
D–Turkey & Pinto Burritos with homemade salsa
B–Breakfast Burritos, Juice
D–Beef & Tomato Soup (in the slow cooker), Garlic Breadsticks
Tuesday: (St. Patrick’s Day)
B–Bagels w/ Green Cream Cheese, Green Grapes, Green Milk
D–Hot Dogs, French Fries, Pickles, Salad (What can I say? I did not produce cabbage lovers! )
B–Breakfast Burritos, Apples
D–Cheesy Beans & Rice (date night)
B–Applesauce Muffins, Bananas, Milk
D–Slow-cooker Chicken Legs, Egg Noodles, & Carrots <– This is a meal that *I* do not like. My family, however, loves it and it is both simple and frugal. Soooo… it makes it on the menu plan every month or so. It’s good to model eating something that’s not your favorite every now and again.
D–Pizza! (I bought yeast. I’ve made 5 different yeast-free recipes from bloggers whose recipes I’ve adored in the past– not a single one was worth repeating, in our opinion. So… I ordered yeast via Amazon Prime and it’ll be here by then. My family will rejoice. Ha!)
B–Scrambled Eggs w/ Bacon, Cinnamon Rolls
D–Spaghetti, Green Beans
And that should do it!
