Life is very busy for us, so I am finding that when I have a plan for meals for the week, it makes things so much easier for all of us.
So for this week, February 6 - 12, here is the plan:
Breakfasts: I always have oatmeal with apples, cinnamon and flax seed and either a hard-boiled egg or a piece of string cheese. The boys find their own breakfast. (Yes, I know, I will NOT be winning the super mom award.)
Lunches: I always have a BAS (Big A** Salad) with some protein, which sometimes is what we had for dinner the previous night. The boys usually have a sandwich, some fruit and something else. I think I will make some egg salad with the HB eggs that are in the refrigerator. Maybe I'll make cookies tonight too...
Monday: Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork from here. I'll cook some orzo pasta and we will either have steamed or fresh veggies with it. ****Edited to add what we actually had: This recipe instead of the first as I was out of Parmesan cheese.
Tuesday: (Gym night) Leftovers? Get meatloaf out of freezer
Wednesday: Meatloaf (from freezer), potatoes, salad or steamed veggies. Check status of leftovers for Thursday - get turkey bacon out of freezer
Thursday: (Gym night) Leftovers or breakfast (turkey bacon and eggs) - Cook rice for Friday, get chicken thighs out of freezer to thaw
Friday: Easy Chicken Curry from here. Rice, cooked on Thursday, salad. Use frozen chicken thighs.
Saturday: Bake Rye bread, cook big pot of beans in crock pot
Clementines (if on sale)
Lunchmeat for lunches for boys
