Menu Plan Monday 4/26 - 5/2
Wheat & Oat Apple Cinnamon Rolls
Eggs & Hash Browns
Blueberry Lemon Muffins
Veggie Scramble with toast
Lunches will mostly be fend for yourself/leftovers and kids eating at school until Thursday. Thursday is a big day at our house. Picky Eater is getting two crowns and Bayberry is getting braces. So before all that dental work, we're going out to eat as a family for "dunch" (a late lunch/early dinner). Weekend lunches will probably be:
Friday: I'll be eating at the school cafeteria (Yikes!) because it's the kids' field day and I'm going to help out. The Hubs has to work out at the range (he's a weapons instructor at a basic training post), so he'll fend for himself.
Saturday: I've planned mac & cheese for Saturday. The homemade sort, of course. Bayberry's braces, sore teeth and all, require soft foods for the weekend.
Sunday: fruit & cheese & bread.
Dinners. I'm trying to clean out my cupboard before grocery shopping mid-week, so Monday through Wednesday might look like this:
Pasta with Tahini sauce
Lentils & Rice with green beans
Crock Pot Pork Ribs with Pintos & Rice and Green Beans
Thursday, as written above, is going to be a very early dinner (eating at 2) and chips and queso at home for us adults to munch on, while Picky Eater will have access to lots of fruits and is welcome to a peanut butter and jam sandwich or some cereal. Bayberry might opt not to eat anything at all, but we'll have yogurt and pudding and sipping soup available for her.
Friday: Fake Stroganoff. Okay, it's not "fake," but it's made with that packet from the spice rack at the grocery store. It's the Hub's choice. Stroganoff made with a seasoning packet, ground beef, and dried egg noodles. And a load of sour cream. Personally, I like the real stroganoff, but it's his choice. Chocolate Ice Cream for dessert. From scratch.
Saturday: Grilled Steaks smothered in grilled onions, mushrooms, and sprinkled with melty cheese; baked potatoes, and corn on the cob. Soft stuff for Bayberry and her Picky Eater sister (since she won't eat the steak).
Sunday: Oat Burgers (made from), Sweet Potato Fries, and Chocolate Mousse for dessert
