Menu Plan Monday

**This is just a plan and plans have the ability to change at the cook's discretion! Last week's menus seemed to go a lot better esp. after Wednesday when dh went back to work after a long holiday. I was able to get some routine and schedule started again so this week should be relatively smooth! I am working at using freezer and pantry items this week.

Lunches listed are for the kids and I as dh usually takes dinner leftovers each day.

A special thanks to Laura-Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday! Need help with your menus, go check others out at Organizing Junkie's site!**

Sounds like a great week! I checked out your snack basket idea, I had one of those but never used it, so all of the snacks were tossed and outdated. Maybe I should start in again, so I don't have to hear the runts ask what they can have!
