Jumping back into this week seems so unreal. After being down with mastitis this week and a weekend of dreary weather I am ready for some sunshine! Thankfully the sun allowed its presence to be known today and now I can get on with why I am writing. 🙂
I am always trying to perfect the way I plan meals around here; being careful to allow flexibility and proper spacing so that I don’t end up with too much and throw good food out. Being off Monday and Thursday are perfect and make the difference in my attitude every week. I certainly love cooking but sometimes it seems like a chore rather than being enjoyable no matter how many times I try to convince myself of the benefits it has for my family. Making a weekly snack has been working a lot for us because then I am not scrambling at 3:30 trying to figure out what snack to throw out for the circus.
Since the weather is growing colder and the leaves are starting to change I am darning my meal plan with themed nights again. My husband reminded me the other week how much he loved them so. 🙂 I typically rotate through a couple of themes each week and it also helps me to stay organized at best with things like soup, crock, takeout, casserole, nacho/burrito, breakfast and U pick night.
Over the weekend we watched a few episodes of Pioneer woman and my guys had stars next to meals they had to have me make this week.
Here’s what we’ve got coming up this week:
Overnight bread and egg bake
Basic oatmeal with fresh fruit
Vanilla donuts with chocolate peanut butter smoothies
cinnamon raisin french toast and sausage
Crockpot chicken stuffing and beans with white pasta shells and basic brownies (My Kid Hero made the brownies on his own!)
Soup Night-Pioneer woman Chicken and noodles
Casserole night- Pioneer woman Beef and bean burritos with veggies and dip
U Pick-English muffin pizza and crinkled carrots
Easy-Foil sandwiches with homemade apple chips and peanut butter dirt pudding
Our snack for the week is finger jello and snack mix
Lunches this week are bagel sandwiches or whatever I throw together (survival!) 🙂
Baby led breakfast
Old fashioned oatmeal with peaches
Egg with toast and ricotta
Baby led lunch
