Menu Plan Monday


**This is just a plan and plans have the ability to change at the cook's discretion!
Despite having a menu plan last week, there was several changes due to the menu not sounding very good. Do you ever get tired of eating?? That basically was what happened around here! Plenty of food in the house but nothing sounded very good to eat! We dined out once but the rest of the time I did my best to fix things that it had been awhile since we had eaten it just to help with a variety of things.

This week’s plans are kid-friendly meals!

Lunches listed are for the kids and I as hubby 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 her site!**

My kids would love to eat at your house. We usually have "grown up" meals, but every so often I have a kids choice week. Each of them, that are old enough, pick a meal that they love and we make it together. It is such a fun week. I might do it again after my current two weeks are up. I've already done all my shopping, so no changing now!

Hi Sonshine!

Thanks for your comment on my blog!

It looks like you all handle lunches and leftovers just like we do. GMTA! :D

I really love the idea of your snack basket. I'm going to work on getting one of our own. Thanks for the idea!
