Joe and I are getting used to working extra and also I'm studying to get my TEFL certification to teach online. I'm also teaching Outschool classes in Minecraft. So between the virtual sports and this, we are a busy family again.
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- Salisbury Steak and mashed potatoes
B - Fried potato hash
L - Sandwiches/soup
D- Mexican chicken and rice w/ beans and chips
B - Cereal w/ fruit cups
L - Noodle cups
D -Manicotti and garlic bread
B - Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat
L - Chicken and Dumplings
B- PB & J crepes
L- chicken parm w/ noodles
D- Creamy chicken and rice
L- Mexican rice
D- Cheeseburger tater tot casserole
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!
