Menu Plan Monday 4/26-5/2

Last week's menu planwent pretty smoothly! I tried two new recipes with the crew and neither of them made it to the family favorite list!They did not even make it to the occasional list!So back to the drawing board in finding some new recipes that are picky eater/kid friendly that are not the same old tacos, creamy chicken, or grilled burgers type meals. We had to grab take out on Friday night because hubby worked from home for part of the day which meant we got busy with items around the house and 5:00pm rolled around and dinner was not even started! The meat was thawed ready to cook but it still would have meant a late dinner, which doesn’t settle too good with hubby’s health issues.

For this week’s shopping trip I went to pick up a few sale deals and few items that I needed to complete meals that I forgot to get in my two week run the week before. I wasn’t going to do any more restocking of pantry items until the month was over because of working on my pantry & freezer spring cleaning event but there was a couple items that cycled on sale this week that I needed to snag or wait another 6-8 weeks before they went on sale again! So I snagged them to refill their stock in my pantry.

This week’s menus is the last full week of my planned spring cleaning event however, I will be making a list to post on my fridge of the items that I still need to use so I am using them rather than getting more of them as we head into the month of May. (look for a complete update on my success of my spring cleaning later in the 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.
