Menu Plan Monday 3/1-3/7

Last week's menu plan went pretty smoothly despite needing to have inspiration for a couple of meals! I was able to use what I had on shelves for those meals so there wasn’t extra cost of getting take out for the family.

This week’s shopping trip was one of a different focus! I had every intention of shopping primarily to stockpile but after a discussion with my hubby that intention was stopped dead in its tracks. I ended up doing my shopping for just items that were a necessity and left all the “stockpiling deals” on the store shelves.

This week’s menus are needing to be a little more thought out as hubby and I are going on a church’s marriage retreat at the end of the week(Thursday evening-Saturday afternoon) and leaving the kids here with my mother-in-law. She is coming from out of town and also doesn’t like to do much in the way of cooking so I am going to have some items ready to go for meals for her and the kids. Also with being gone at the end of the week means that meals before I leave are going to quick & simple so that I can get things prepared for while we are gone.

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 along with various snacks for his work lunch.

Great looking menu! :D Have you heard that it isn't good to roast a whole chicken in your crockpot? I found that out recently as I was going to do one. It stays too long in the danger zone. UGH! If you want more info, email me.

Thanks for chicken recipe! I showed it to my husband and he said it looked good, so I think we'll give it a try! I'll let you know how it turns out!
