Whew!! I made it through last week and all its activities! The spring play at church ended up having THREE shows instead of the initial two that were planned!! The play was wonderful! I must say that my oldest son is developing his talent of acting quite well! My MIL stayed through Sunday morning church and then left for home. Despite the busyness, last week's menu plan went pretty smoothly even if I did have to pull quick meals from the freezer or do leftover makeovers rather than what I had initially planned! Hubby goes back to work on Tuesday so this week should be back to normal and less busy.
For this week's shopping trip, I went over my $100 budget by $9.31 but that still isn't bad considering that I had an extra in the house for two days. I should have enough meat in the house to last me for two weeks so we will see if that keeps me from buying anymore!
This week's menus are family favorite meals! After a busy week, I like sticking with tried and true recipes to easy back into normalcy rather than trying new dishes.
For this week, lunches listed are for the kids and I except for Monday! Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or carrot sticks along with fruit juice or water. Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover along with various snacks for his work lunch.
