Menu Plan Monday 4/11-4/17

Last week I planned menus but did not post them as it was a busy week.  The busy week consisted of Easter and having my parents over for dinner; Wednesday was an adults only dinner get together with our church small group; and Friday was a planned dinner, movie, and overnight date night for hubby and I.  We had a great time on our little getaway on Friday getting reconnected and working on getting some plans in place for the next few months. 

Last week I did an essentials trip of grocery shopping!  I shopped for some deals and also got the essentials that we were missing from the big shopping trip I did two weeks ago.  My challenge from my hubby to empty the freezer is actually going very well in my opinion. I really need to get myself motivated to bake up some goodies as that would decrease the baking supply items (butter, zucchini, blueberries & mashed bananas) that I have in the freezer.

This week’s meals are simple and using what I have on hand in the freezer and pantry.   I am going to be doing some baking this week.  At the end of the week is payday, so I will be doing grocery shopping and my monthly Sam’s run to do some restocking of my pantry and freezer.  

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 really plan his lunches. I just take the next container of leftovers in the stack in the fridge that I have prepared ahead of time.
