Menu Plan Monday 7/5-7/11

Last week's menu plan went pretty smoothly! I was able to get some baking done last week and now I have several items (mainly breakfast items, like a new recipe of cherry apple bran muffins) that I can pull from the freezer. I also spent Thursday afternoon at my parents’ house working at clearing out a lot of the over grown brush and trees on their 1.6 acres along with spreading topsoil along their relatively new concrete driveway and hubby came and joined us after work, then my parents’ took us out for dinner to Wendy’s! They actually took us out twice because we spent Friday at their house too so we went to dinner at Bob Evans! Just in case you are wondering we even spent Saturday at their house too but then we came back to our house for dinner as I had spaghetti sauce simmering all day so I just had to boil some noodles and bake the bread. With spending so much time at my parents’ house and hubby having a four day weekend (Fri-Mon), it was a busy holiday weekend!

For this week’s shopping trip I worked at getting enough to last us for a couple of weeks. Payday is the 15th so I am hoping that with what I purchased and what I still have in my pantry and freezer we will have enough to make it! I should only need to get milk and eggs in the house, and thankfully both are on sale this week!!

This week’s menus are kid friendly meals! My oldest son turns 13 this week so I asked each of my five kids what they would like for dinner this week.

For this week’s lunches that are listed below are for the kids and me! Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or carrot sticks along with fruit juice or water. Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover along with various snacks for his work lunch so I don’t take the time to plan his lunches. He just takes the next oldest leftover on the stack in the fridge.
