Menu Monday

I haven't been keeping up our Menu Monday post for several months.  I have really found that menu planning is essential to keeping myself a bit organized.  When I create a menu, I include our schedule on it also.  In fact, I type the schedule into the table that I created first.  Then I know what is going on that day, and I can plan crockpot meals or even know if I need to have a make-ahead meal ready.

B- Yogurt, cereal, fruit
L - Sandwiches and soup
D- Homemade pizzas (Joe and Caty had cauliflower crust...working on this since Joey is allergic to almonds, so cannot use almond flour for him)

B - Oatmeal or yogurt with granola, bananas or apple slices
L- Geography meal - Steak Fingers w/ fries
D - Pierogis and sausage

B - Poptarts (Treat breakfast)
L - Salads w/ shredded pork sandwiches
D - shredded chicken with stuffing

B - Corn dogs
L - Packed lunch (Co-op day)
D - Take Out 

B - Pumpkin muffins and fruit
L - Idaho lunch - Teff flour pancakes with huckleberry syrup
D - Taco soup in crockpot

B- Crescent roll pizzas
L - Leftover soup with cheese quesadillas
D - Butter chicken with rice and broccoli

B- Biscuit sandwiches to go
L- Lunch at Basketball Tournament
D- Taco dip w/ chips and veggies

It is very hard to plan with all the dietary needs in this house.  Between Caty, Brayden, and Joe's lower carb eating, and I see the need to push Joey further in this direction, it is hard to plan and balance.  Even though Carbs are listed heavy for breakfast, I do keep an eye on what the rest of the day's eating entails.  Also, Joe does not get to eat all those extra carbs.  I have a separate breakfast I make for him daily.  I keep that on my weekly meal that I have posted on the cabinet.

Hope everyone has a great week!!  See everyone next Monday!
