This is my first time participating in Orgjunkie’s Menu Plan Monday. However, it’s not the first time that I have menu planned for the week. I learned it from Amy, my good friend over at FOXyMa. She taught me Menu Planning & how it really frees you up and you don’t have to sit & THINK about what your having at night for supper! Thanks Amy!! It’s really Great but, it does take effort to sit down.. gather recipes and make a plan. When I do use this method.. it seems that my family is much happier,.. as long as I use “kid-friendly” recipes! ;0) So..without further a-do.. here’s my menu for this week. YAY!! I included lunch too, because.. all the kids are home & I don’t want them to have a ham sammy & chicken nuggets everyday!
Lunch- Ham N’ Cheese Roll-ups, cheese puffs(alot planning going on!), & fruit.
Dinner- Sweet & Sour Pork, Rice, & Fresh Green Beans
Lunch-Salmon Patties, fries, cheesy grits
Dinner-Chicken Stir Fry, Rice, Stir fry Veggies, Mandarin oranges
Lunch-Mini-Meat loaves with cheese topping, mashed potatoes, green beans
Dinner-Corn dogs, chips..(it’s church night) hurry,,hurry,,hurry
Lunch- PB& J, chips, fruit
Dinner- Grilled Chicken, potato salad, baked beans, & garlic bread
Sat: KITCHEN CLOSED
Lunch- Pot Roast with veggies, rice, peas, fresh stewed squash, Frozen Lemonade Pies.
I found two new helpful sites that I love. First is Recipezaar! It’s great! It has thousands of different recipe’s and it can even make a grocery list for you! The next one is kraftfoods.com .
This site has many Easy recipes that are Kid friendly. My kids are I’m sure like all the rest.. they love the basics… chicken tenders, spaghetti, tacos…etc. I like to try things new.. so this may be a little challenge .. trying to find something they can enjoy as much as Matt & I! A couple of weeks ago.. I tried a Tuna Noddle Casserole. Oh.. my, I loved it.. but the children however,.. said.. Momma.. it’s okay. I don’t want to make something that’s okay for them.. I want them to say WOW, I love it! kidda like B-man did when he had that fried tater sandwich Sat. LOL! Very healthy people, very healthy!!
okay.. so.. leave me some comments.. got any fab recipes you can share that kids love.. or maybe a website I need to try!!!!
Don’t be shy now!! 😉
