Menu Plan Monday 1/4-1/10

**It is the first full week of the New Year, which means that it is back to the regular routine! The regular routine being we are going back to our school schedule and hubby goes back to work! It was fun having the time off to do fun things together as a family along with getting some much needed projects done around the house. ALL the Christmas goodies are either in the freezer for later consumption or have been consumed! Going back to the regular schedule means going back to the lower sugar consumption as well!

Last week's menu plan got a little sticky towards the end of the week as I didn’t have meals planned out so those days were a bit stressful trying to figure out what sounded good with what I had on hand! We ended up eating at home one night and going to Steak N Shake the other night!

Well this shopping trip helped to finish last week’s menus and was enough to start menus for this week, however; it will not be able to finish off the week! Thankfully, there is still grocery money to use from hubby’s paycheck so I will be grocery shopping today to finish off this week’s menus!

There isn’t much to this week’s menus because I like to do my shopping first before I plan so I have planned the meals that I have the supplies for and the rest of the menu plan will immerge after my grocery shopping trip!

Lunches listed are for the kids & me. Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or baby carrots along with fruit juice or water. Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover for his work lunch.
