Menu Monday

 



What a week....Does anyone else get overwhelmed looking at their schedule?  That's how I've been feeling lately.  It's crazy.  Working full-time and homeschooling can be a struggle.  But we are finding our niche.  I tried cooking a few meals ahead and sticking them in the fridge last week.  It worked out well.  I did that for this week too.  We are talking about getting another small freezer just fro freezer meals.  We will wait and see what we can find.

***This is important.....some days I change things around.****  I print a menu and keep it on the cabinet.  If something happens, I change the menu in pencil.  I make sure to keep track at the bottom of the menu of the meals that get moved, and we still have the ingredients for.  

This biggest thing to remember.... BE FLEXIBLE!!  I cannot express this enough.  Do not down yourself if you need to move your menu around.  You might be exhausted, need to work over, or a sports practice gets moved....all these things have happened to me in the last few weeks.  Flexibility is the key.  I also have given up some control in the kitchen and make sure that the kids are involved as much as possible in making meals.  Some day they will be able to cook the entire meal themselves!!  Whoohooo!!

I know I didn't share any recipes, but if you are interested, please email me.  renitakuehner@gmail.com.  I'd be happy to share a close variation of what we make.  I seriously do not really follow recipes well...lol

Hope that these ideas help and everyone has a great week!!!
