Well, Monday has already almost come and gone and here I am, planning away. I added a component to my menu that really threw me off. I read other people’s menus, and they include – get this – not only dinners, but lunch. And breakfast. And SNACKS!! While I admired these amazing planners, I also kind of thought it was over the top.
I think I was just jealous. I like having a plan, and I’m going to try it for all meals this week. Breakfast and lunch are boring, but this is truly what I work from weekly so I’m going to include them too. Quickly though, as I have to watch the Most Dramatic Rose Ceremony Ever soon. It’s true. Against all odds, I LOVE the Bachelor/Bachelorette. I just get weirder and weirder as this post goes on, don’t I?
Breakfast: Pancakes (made during the Peequal Rights Movement), with blueberries as a side.
Lunch: Mac & Cheese for the kids, salad for me. Applesauce as a side.
Dinner: Turkey Tacos. Mix 1/2 lb. of browned ground turkey with this recipe for Lentils & Rice from Broad Horizons. Serve on taco shells with all the regular fixin’s. My whole family loves this! It makes a ton.
Just so we can avoid utinsels entirely, I’ll serve with carrots, celery, and dip. We are also going to crack open a coconut, just for fun. I don’t even know if it’s good to eat alone, but we’ll find out.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins. I’m going to try this oatmeal soaking business that is all the rage these days, too. Read more about it here in Keeper of the Home and Passionate Homemaking, two amazing women who I learn from every time I read their blogs.
Lunch: Grilled cheese sandwiches, carrots and celery.
Breakfast: Cereal with milk
Lunch: Picnic Lunch with A.P.’s preschool; PB&J, carrots & celery, and sliced apples.
Dinner: Pizza with homemade crust and topped with olives and turkey peperoni, mixed green salad, and fresh strawberries for desert.
Breakfast: Pancakes with blueberries as a side.
Lunch: Leftover pizza and sliced apples.
Snacks: apples & peanut butter, popcorn, bread with honey, carrots & celery with dip.
