Week 416 Menu (it's been way too long)

I came home from running kids around to practices, etc. last week and my four year old presented me with this picture of me.  I love it.  
Hi everyone! 

Remember the days when I used to post my menu every week?  Well, I started this blog 10 years ago (wow!) and posted menus weekly faithfully for years.  My kids are getting older (now 13, 11, 8 and 4) and things are so much busier than they used to be.  Blogging has taken a back seat, and unfortunately, so has good menu planning and family dinner time too.  Quite often I think "there's a ton of the food in the fridge that we need to eat up" or something comes up right at dinner-making time and we end up having quesadillas or oatmeal.  Anyway...I'm determined to do better.  Menu planning leads to better grocery shopping trips and better meals, all of which my family appreciates.  :)

Anyway...life is busy, but super great!  We had our first snow yesterday {trying to stay positive about it}.  Soccer season is so close to being over {the last week}.  Basketball season started a month ago, but now maybe we can enjoy it.  I bought the warmest, fuzziest sweats that I never want to take off.  And now I'm going to post my menu, change out of my fuzzy sweats, exercise and get ready for the day before my big kids get home. 

So, here's my menu plan for the week.

Monday:  spaghetti

Tuesday: baked potato soup

Wednesday:  ham and egg mcmuffins

Thursday:  parmesan tilapia, simple orzo pilaf

Friday: easy night

Saturday:  easy night


I'd love to hear what your plans are for this week.  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do. 

Have a great week! While so many sad tragedies are happening, I'm chosing to focus on the joy and service that so many people give me to me and to others.  So much goodness.

  1. Hey! I've been struggling to plan my menu and get to the store when I'm supposed to! We had to be a little creative with lunches today since I didn't make it to the store Saturday :) Anyway, I decided last night to try and get a few things planned for the week since we are starting into our new winter sport schedule and will be eating in shifts for a few weeks. I feel so much more prepared for the week.

    Tues: Chicken tortilla soup
    Wed: Freezer meal
    Thurs: Italian baked spaghetti squash, caesar salad
    Fri: Flat bread pizzas
    Sat: Leftovers
    Sun: Chile, cornbread and green salad
