Menu Monday

So this week will be different.  I have a plan for meals, but not a tight plan.  I'm being flexible this week.  Joe and I are getting used to a new work schedule between us.  And the kids have had requests here and there and I'm trying to accommodate some of their ideas.  I also want to use a bit more of our cabinet stockpile before we go to the store for more than fresh vegetables and milk.

Here's what is on the menu this week....

B- Homemade McGriddle sandwiches (I use loosely this recipe but just add the maple syrup to the batter and not add as much water.  I freeze them with pre-made bacon so the kids can just nuke them when they are ready to eat.)
L- Frozen pizzas
D- Leftovers (I served noodles and rice w/ the leftover kabob meat and veggies from the night before.)

B - Breakfast sandwiches or Cereal
L - Bagel sandwiches
D- Leftovers again - using up what we had cooked

B - Fried potato hash
L - Butter chicken
D- chicken strips and tater tot waffles

B - Cereal w/ fruit cups
L - Noodle cups
D - Spaghetti and garlic bread

B - Oatmeal cookies
L - Pigs in the Blanket
D- Chicken gravy and mashed potatoes

B- PB & J crepes
L- Macaroni and cheese w/ chili
D- Creamy chicken and rice

B- Open
L- Mexican rice
D- Homemade pizzas

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!
