Inspired by a class I attended at CBC#10 (which was fabulous), I decided to simplify our meals for awhile. Sarah (my amazing sister and the Home Organization guru) along with Marie Ricks (House of Order) spoke a bit about meal planning and using a consistent pattern. It will probably take your kids and your husband at least 5 years to notice there is a pattern at all, but will make your life so much easier.
So, this is what I came up with to simplify the meals and be more organized.
|Tuesday||Oatmeal||Green salads||Nuts and dried fruit||Italian|
|Friday||Muffins/ fruit salad||Soup||Fruits or veggies||Vegetarian|
So, with that menu as my template, this is our meal plan for the week.
|Monday||Power Gold Smoothie||Turkey, cranberry sandwiches||Canteloupe balls on skewers||Burritos with refried beans|
|Tuesday||Apple cinnamon Oatmeal||Spinach salad and whole wheat rolls||Cashews and dried apricots||Spinach Pesto Pasta with green salad|
|Wednesday||Scrambled Eggs with feta cheese and mushrooms||Chicken salad wraps||Sliced cucumbers marinated in yogurt, vinegar, and sugar||Fried Rice AWESOME Meal! So fast and easy!|
|Thursday||Banana Nut Waffles||Pasta Pizza||Pita chips in hummus||Hamburgers and homemade fries|
|Friday||Blueberry muffins and canteloupe||Turkey and Rice Soup||Frozen fruit puree popsicles||Flaky Pizza Purses and Sheeze|
