Saturday – Loaded Potato Soup – My own recipe.
Sunday – We’ll eat lunch with Aaron’s family. I plan to make the following for school lunches this week: Cheesy Corn Dog Muffins and pigs in the blanket. I also hope to get packets of fruit and veggies together so all I have to do is grab them and throw them in lunch bags.
Monday – Lunches – Me: Leftover spaghetti. Kids: The boy gets a cheesy corn dog muffin with mandarin oranges and pretzels. The girl gets pigs in the blanket with cheese sticks, grapes, and cucumbers with carrot sticks.
Dinner – Slow cooker Korean Beef with rice and roasted zucchini, mushrooms, and onions.
Tuesday – Lunches – Me: Leftover Korean Beef with Rice because yum. Kids: Regular quesadilla for the girl and a pizza quesadilla for the boy. Also berries and tortilla chips with guacamole for the girl and grapes, cucumber slices, and chips for His Pickiness.
Dinner – Slow cooker chicken and gravy with mashed potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts.
Wednesday – Lunches – Me: Leftover chicken and gravy with rice, I expect. Kids: Pigs in the blanket with cheese sticks, apple slices, and crackers (Triscuits for the girl and Cheez-Its for the boy). I’ll probably throw in a cookie or two for good measure.
Dinner: We didn’t get to have the sauerkraut and weenies last week due to life happening, so I moved it to this night. I still plan to have potatoes latkes with it.
Thursday – Lunches – Me: I figure I’ll be wanting some Chipotle by this day, so I’ll have a veggie burrito bowl for lunch. Kids: I figured I’d either give them pigs in the blanket again or corn dog muffins again with some fruit and crackers. And also veggies.
Dinner: With my family.
Friday – Lunches – Me: Probably out again. Kids: Ham sandwiches, cheese sticks, carrot and cucumber slices (with ranch for the boy), and crackers.
Dinner: Kids will be with MIL and I’ll be fending for myself. Probably some GF pasta in cheese sauce for ease.
Making the list last week helped SO MUCH!! How do you plan for the week?
