Menu Plan Monday 4/19-4/25

 Last week's menu plan went pretty smoothly despite not having two days planned out ahead of time.  It proved to be a little stressful on those days as I would really have to think about what to do for dinner. 

It was “payday week” for this week’s shopping trip so I was able to get other meat in the house except for ground beef.  This week’s shopping trip also involved my monthly trip to Sam’s Club.  All my grocery shopping was squeezed in between soccer practices & games, church drama practices, hubby’s mentoring group, my dentist appointment and our suburban in the shop for half a day!  I am still working at doing a pantry & freezer spring cleaning event for the month of April.   I had to replenish some “staples” that I love to keep stocked so that must be a good sign that things are going well. 

This week’s menus is the third full week of my spring cleaning event however, I have a few more meats in the freezer now so meals should have a little bit of a variety to them. I am going to try a couple new meals this week despite having yet another busy week!! 

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.
