Menu Plan for the Week of December 26th
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. We always enjoy getting together with our extended family, and this year was no exception. I think everyone’s belts are a little tighter today, but it was a wonderful day.
I am in the mood for a simple menu this week, so here is my plan:
(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”)
Pasta (My kids love it)
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
Leftovers from dinner
Baked teriyaki chicken
peas, mashed potatoes, and carrots
Grocery list: Chicken, potatoes, peas, carrots, soy sauce, garlic, apple cider vinegar and ginger
Sesame noodles and broccoli
Grocery list: Angel hair pasta, broccoli, soy sauce, garlic, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, hot chili oil, canola oil and green onions (optional)

I love that you list lunch ideas. I have 5 kids & homeschool, too. Planning dinner meals isn’t hard, but I get to bored with lunch. Thanks for your ideas. Happy New Year!
