Menu Plan Monday 8/16-8/22

Last week's menu plans went off without too much trouble. The kids enjoyed the kid friendly meals. Thursday night’s dinner of pizza was the lazy cook way of pulling pizzas and French fries out of the freezer. It was nice not having to stress over trying to make an elegant meal for everyone. I even pulled out the paper plates so there wasn’t any clean up to worry about after eating.

This week my shopping trip was working at getting all the items that I needed for two weeks. The school year is fast approaching for us and I am wanting to get back into doing a major shopping trip every two weeks with the in between weeks being just for the restocking of perishable items like milk, eggs, and fresh fruit.

This week’s menus are some of our favorite simple meals! There is not much going on this week so it will be nice to have the old routine in place. I am going to be doing meals at the beginning of the week that I know will have leftovers so that my hubby has some lunch choices for the end of the week. Last week, I didn’t have much in the way of leftovers so it is time to do some catch-up so hubby has something more than just deli meat or peanut butter sandwiches for lunches.

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 fresh fruit 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.
