Fried Egg, Cheese and Jalepeno sandwich is normal right? I thought so.
Ok… enough about that craziness…. Here is my menu for the week (easy because of VBS):
Monday- Boxed Chicken Veggie Lasagna (gasp).. Yep, it’s been in the freezer for a while and it needs to be eaten. We start VBS tomorrow so I won’t be doing my normal morning grocery run. So, we’ll have an easy dinner and then head to the grocery store tomorrow evening.
Beef Pot Roast (Crock Pot ~ I’m looking at 2 recipes to try… I’ll let you know which one I choose and if it turns out)), Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Beef Soft Tacos (using leftover meat), Refried Beans, Apple Grape and Walnut Salad
Crockpot BBQ Chicken, Broccoli, Corn on the cob
Loaded Baked Potatoes, Salad
Reviews from last week: The meatloaf in the crockpot was a hit. There was A LOT of fat to drain off but that’s pretty normal. I just drained it about an hour before it was supposed to be finished and added the ketchup to the top. I loved that I could just throw it in at lunch and that it was done at supper time. The other plus, the crock pot doesn’t heat up my kitchen like the oven does. I didn’t make the other crock pot meal (the chicken one) because we had a busy day and I just made some tuna salad for that night.
Breakfast- Cereal, Oatmeal, Fruit
Lunches- Sandwiches, Leftovers, Fruit, Carrots Sticks (dressing)… I think there are a few Lean Cuisine’s in there too. (we’ll be snacking at VBS so lunches will be small)
Snacks- Yogurt, Raisins, Teddy Grahams, Popcorn, Fruit.. I’m trying to lay off the sweets this week so I’m staying away from the frozen dessert aisle!
I have no idea what we’ll be getting for fruit besides grapes, apples and bananas. Cantaloupes are on sale so I’ll get one of those if I find a good looking one. I think berries (all kinds) are one sale too.
We had a great time Friday night with the grandparents. We ended up getting a tray of chicken nuggets (from ChickFilA) and I baked some french fries, which is the recently turned 2 year old’s favorite. I also got a tray of deli subs from Publix, a cookie cake & vanilla ice cream. We also had chips to go along with it and my mom made a peach cobbler. We tend to over do it in the food department for get-togethers. I would rather have too much food than not enough. We had leftovers Sat and today for lunch from the party.
Time for bed.. VBS starts tomorrow… 🙂
