Menu Plan Monday 4/10-4/16

This week’s meals are simple and using what items I have in the freezer and pantry.   I am planning on only getting milk and eggs this week from the store.  I need to use up some of my stockpile items before they expire.  I also need to clear shelves in the freezer so that I can do a big shopping trip at the beginning of next week.

This week I am keeping my options open for two different nights.  Lately there has been one night a week that hubby has been working late and then going to a bible study group so the kids and I either hit up the leftovers or have something quick out of the freezer(ie chicken nuggets).  For this week, I have two nights where leftovers or something quick might have to be utilized due more to my lack of inspiration and not wanting similar type dishes several times during the week. 

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 and oldest son usually take a dinner leftover along with various snacks for their lunches so I don’t take the time to really plan their lunches. I just take the next container of leftovers in the stack in the fridge that I have prepared ahead of time.
