Our Partnership classes started last week, and I now teach an extra two classes. So we are there longer. We are in a lull between major sports this month, but I am looking forward to those sports coming up. Lydia is looking forward to volleyball for sure. As things get busier again in March, I'm glad that I have this month to adjust into a longer school day on Wednesdays and what I will keep in the crockpot or have ready for those busy days. I want to avoid take-out Wednesdays.
The kids did not enjoy the burrito bowls from last week, so I guess I'll be taking those off the menu and try again in a few weeks.

Why I plan.....
Who isn't busy?!?! Kids schedules, schoolwork, work, WOW!! Life just does not stop!
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. I do not use a fancy downloadable calendar, I simply use Microsoft Word. I have a table I created on there. At the bottom, I keep a running list of menu items that either I want them to try or food that is loved by all.
Hope everyone has a great week!! See everyone next Monday!
