What a great weekend! We took the kids to a circus, and I think even my “bored” teenager enjoyed it. I remember my parents taking my brother, sister and I one time, and I’ve never forgotten the experience. We are learning to seize moments at our house. It has been way too easy in the past to put “fun” things off for later because of the busyness and demands of life, but we are realizing our time with our children in the home is limited. My hubby and I tend to be the serious “I have a million things to get done” typical firstborns, and we are trying to balance things out more with family life experiences, and savoring our time with our children, whether that means working together or playing together.
Ok, on to the meal plan for some family dinners this week.
Breakfast Options: (Any combination of the following)
Egg whites and spinach (hubby’s choice)
(We like to add fruit and/or carrots to any of these “entrees”)

Macaroni and cheese
Vegetarian corn dogs
Chicken, turkey or ham sandwiches
Graham crackers and milk
Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches
Whole wheat toast
Yogurt or cheese sticks, crackers

GROCERY LIST- salad greens (I use romaine lettuce), ham or turkey, eggs, tomatoes, green onion, swiss and or cheddar cheese, dressing
Pizza (I like to add extra toppings to frozen pizza for a quick easy meal)
Cashew sesame noodles (so good, and sometimes I add cooked chicken breast) and carrot sticks
GROCERY LIST- angel hair pasta, 1/2 c cashews, soy sauce, garlic, rice vinegar, asian sesame oil, red pepper flakes, baby carrots

There you have it. Is having the added grocery list helpful? I didn’t include things I figured most people would have on hand like baking soda… If this is helpful, I will try to keep it up. Hope you all have a great week!
