Menu Plan for the Week of December 2nd
December is here, and my hubby and oldest son have birthdays this month. I CANNOT believe my oldest child will be 17! I remember SO clearly the moment the doctor laid him on me just after he was born and how surreal the moment felt. Now he is almost a man, and I am so proud of him, but I have a hard time imagining where all the time has gone…
(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
Italian meatball soup and breadsticks
Grocery list: Meatballs, beef broth, Italian style stewed tomatoes, frozen stew vegetables and breadsticks
Quinoa, chicken and sweet potato stew (Great for the crockpot)
Grocery list: Chicken, onion, garlic, chicken broth, chili powder, red pepper flakes, quinoa, sweet potatoes, black beans, kidney beans and petite diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil

Stopping by from MPM. I cannot wait to try the sweet potato stew!! We are looking for some stew/soup recipes and yours look yumalicious!
Today is the last day to enter round 3 of Merry Merry Munchies at Dining With Debbie.

MPM definitely keeps me on track. I actually look forward to Mondays!
Every time I look at my son’s face I still see the screaming newly born baby boy. He’s now 20 yrs old. They do grow up so quickly.
Your menu plan looks delicious.
Have a wonderful week!
