Menu Plan Monday 8/2-8/8

Last week's menu plans went off without too much trouble. The only thing that didn’t get made was some homemade pizza because we have been dealing with the flu going through each member of the family so pizza is not the best meal to serve sensitive stomachs. We ended up at my parents’ house on Friday night and opted for bringing in Arby’s for dinner so there was less stress on me to have enough food for everyone.

This week with my shopping trip, I saved more than I spent and added nicely to my stockpile.

This week’s menus are quick and easy meals! This week is Vacation Bible School(VBS) at our church and hubby, oldest son and I are volunteering as workers along with three of the kids going to the week’s event and my youngest will be in the nursery. Our church is about 20 minutes from our house so we will need to be leaving around our usual dinner hour to get there to work. We will be using our snack basket a lot this week because snack will be on the road coming home from VBS.

After VBS is finished on Thursday night, we will be going to my college alumni party at the beach. The food will be provided and we just have to come and enjoy it along with the fellowship.

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.
