Menu Monday-- October 19th

I am slowly (but surely) getting life back to "normal". Chris was home for 3 weeks after Nicholas was born (what a blessing). He took care of everything from laundry to homeschooling. I have been doing more and more. Last week I made my first menu and went grocery shopping. Boy, was it hard leaving Nicholas.

Chris and I have both been cooking dinners. I have been trying to keep breakfast and lunch to things that are easy. Honestly, in the morning, if I had a rough night, I catch a little sleep with Nicholas after his 6 am bottle. A sleepy cranky mommy makes for a long day.

So here is the plan for our menu---which is ALWAYS subject to change.

B-Banana Bread
L-Left over pasta
D-Chorico and Fry grinders

L-Turkey Sandwiches
D-Homemade Pizza----YES, I actually made homemade pizza. It was pretty good. I would make the crust thinner next time.

L-Left over Pizza
D-Roasted Chicken with chorico, potatoes, corn

B-Oatmeal---Zachary will make
L-Grill Cheese
D-BBQ, Rice pilaf

B-Blueberry Muffins
D-Taco Tuesday!!! Taco, Rice and veggie platter

B-French Toast----Chris' day off : )
L-Mac and Cheese
D-not sure yet. Something with chicken.

B-LaMuffins (egg sandwich on a english muffin. Our last name starts with "La")

The kids have a healthy snack mid-morning of either fruit or yogurt. They also have a afternoon snack. This week they will have a choice of granola bar, fruit grain bar, zucchini bread, pudding, and popcorn.

A few times a week I let them have a dessert after dinner. Chris made cupcakes Friday night (yummy) with Zachary. Apple crisp is a favorite this time of year. Ice cream is a favorite all year round.
