|I made this Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread last week...it was tasty! Next time, |
I won't slash the loaf quite so deep!
We don't do a lot of planning for breakfast, though if I make zucchini bread, it will probably be offered for breakfast with a fruit smoothie. There is also cereal, sliced pumpkin bread in the freezer, eggs, cream cheese, bread for toast, peanut butter, yogurt, fruit, etc. Lunches are generally leftovers from suppers or something quick and easy from the pantry. Snacks this week will include fresh fruit, zucchini bread, popcorn, nuts and dried fruit and smoothies. Here is our supper menu:
M - biscuits and sausage gravy, hash browns, green beans, apple wedges
T - fried chicken, sweet corn, pan-fried zucchini w/onion, crescent rolls, melon
W - chili with rice, carrot and celery sticks, canned pears
R - baked herbed turkey breast, steamed broccoli, au-gratin potatoes, peach cobbler
F - blt sandwiches, bean w/bacon soup, carrots and celery, apple wedges
S - nachos supreme, fruit smoothies
S - hamburger helper lasagna, saute'ed zucchini, fruit salad
To pull this off, I need to pick up a couple tomatoes. Everything else is on hand! Woot-woot!
Our 'eat out' this week is the fried chicken on Tuesday. I make - honestly - the worst fried chicken. Tuesday, when there is a special (1.19 for a leg and a thigh), Husband will pick up the chicken on the way home from work, and I will make the sides.
Planning the meals for the week really helps me feel like I *have* a plan...and it saves me the day-to-day stress I used to feel when we didn't do this. Family helps me plan, which means we all get input, too. It helps us use the fresh stuff we have on hand while it is fresh, too. What are you eating this week?
