I haven’t posted my menu for a while… two reasons. One, I had been getting really bad about making one, and two I got busy with the start up of everything. I had to make a new plan as we are only home as a family for dinner on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The other days we are running to soccer or church. I’m loving the way I’m doing it – I am serving dinner at lunch and then lunch at dinner. This way the “dinner” in the afternoon can be a “on the go” meal because most days I have a wait time between activities and then I can just have dinner in the cooler. One little man doesn’t like missing his PB&J for lunch… but he gets it at dinner… still not happy… strange child!
So here is this weeks menu starting with yesterday.
Sunday – Eggplant Parmigiana (WW way… 3 points + the points of the noodles) It was yummy!
Monday – Boys are at my Dad’s, so just me and the girls before Ms. A’s soccer game – I’m giving them Fish Sticks and Mac and Cheese
Tuesday – Lentil Tacos (these are SOOOO yummy even the kids liked them!)
Wednesday – Dinner at church!
Thursday – Dinner for lunch – Taco Soup (crock pot recipe)
Friday – Farmers Casserole (an egg casserole that I can make ahead)
Saturday – helping friends move and taking Easy Chili (crock pot recipe) then dinner with other friends!
I also changed up how often I shop. Our budget works on two week cycles so I was shopping for two weeks at a time, but that was stressful to me. So I started doing once a week and it is so much nicer. I have to go grocery shopping more, but it’s easier to make a menu for one week versus two.
That’s all folks!
