Slacking and Celebrating All In One Week!


As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I've been in kitchen slack-off mode. The name of the game right now is just coming up with meals that I can stomach putting together and that my family will eat. That is my only goal. Given my truly un-ambitious streak right now, this makes it a strange week for me to do my very first Menu Plan Monday post for Org Junkie... but, hey!, why not?

So here's what'll be happening in our home this week:

Breakfasts: cereal, oatmeal, or English muffins
applesauce or yogurt
milk or juice

Lunches: sandwiches, soup, lo mein, bagel pizzas, pasta
fruit
milk or water

Suppers:
Mon. 12/15- (ultrasound day!) Frozen Chicken Parm dinner, pasta, broccoli
Tues. 12/16- Hot & Sour Peanut Noodles
Wed. 12/17- Grilled (ahem, grill PAN) Chicken, mashed potatoes, salad (this is a fabulous
salad, people... be sure to join us for our Bloggy Progressive Dinner this whole week...
I'll be sharing my salad recipe on Wednesday)
Thur. 12/18- Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwiches, soup
Fri. 12/19- Veggie Omelets, Toast, Applesauce
Sat. 12/20- We're celebrating C's 3rd Birthday! Tradition holds that the birthday child gets his or
her favorite foods at the party so we'll be having macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, and grapes.... and
cake, of course! Poor girl never gets a party on her real day... Christmas Eve.

For a lot more interesting menu plans, head on over to Org Junkie! To start joining us on our Bloggy Progressive Dinner, be sure to head over to Five J's where Joy is serving up drinks today!

I hope it works for you! I have tried the whole planning out menus and it never seems to work for me. Then again I am disorganized when it comes to cooking (I hate cooking)!

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday -- or, as it's called in my house, Menu Plan Middle of the Night Monday!

Welcome to MPM! :) Yummy menu planned this week! :)

I had to laugh at your comment about your daughter not getting a birthday party on her actual birth day. My daughter's birthday is Dec. 27th and she will be 5 this year and still won't be getting a party on her birthday because all her friends are celebrating the holidays. So we usually have something after the first of the year. LOL

Enjoy your week! Merry Christmas!

welcome to mpm. This has really helped me a lot! Just a little time in advance has saved us a lot of grief (and money!) later!
