Menu Planning 2017 (4)
We had a great week last week. We enjoyed the sunshine almost every day. We took one day and went to the Omaha Zoo. It was a lot of fun. If you’ve not gone to the Omaha Zoo, I highly recommend it. Assuming of course, you live near Omaha or are driving nearby.
This week I have three days to hangout with the kids and am not certain what we’re doing yet. But I’m sure I’ll come up with something fun.
I’m struggling a bit coming up with some variety. Its been two years since I’ve menu planned. I’m in desperate need of some new ideas. This is especially true for lunch. I’ve always worked full-time. So having the kids all the time coming up with decent lunches that won’t take a lot of time to make, is a bit challenging. I’d love to hear what lunches you’ve made and have been a success with your family.
Monday AM: Almond Butter Toast with honey Lunch: Chicken Salad, French Fries, Veggies Supper: Pot Roast w/veggies Tuesday AM: Muffins Lunch: Sack lunch in the park Supper: Tacos Wednesday AM: Cereal Lunch:Grilled Cheese, Tator Tots, Fruit Supper: Beef & Broccoli Thursday AM: Cereal Lunch: Chef Salads Supper: Chicken thighs, Baked Potatoes, Corn Friday AM: Smoothies Lunch: Almond butter sandwiches, Fruit, Yogurt Supper: Pizza w/salad Saturday AM: French Toast Lunch: Beanie Weanies Supper: Spaghetti Sunday AM: Doughnuts Lunch: Left-overs Supper Grilled Bratwurst, Potato Salad, Fruit
So that’s it! Nothing too great. I did get an Instant Pot recently so I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with it. I’ve put a couple of items on this menu which will use it.
I have a couple of recipes I’ve tried in the last couple of weeks I will share this week.
I’d love to see your menu. Please feel free to share a link to your menu plan or just share it in the comments.
