It is week number 2 of being back at work. I was off for a month and definitely lost the rhythm it takes to get everything done during the day so when I get home from work I can just sleep. but I will get back into the habits I need. Last week I got out early one night due to snow. We are expecting another storm on Wednesday so I may have an early night again, we will see.
Last week we did well with our menu plan. The only deviation was Sunday I picked up fried chicken while grocery shopping. I wanted to go out to eat but it wasn't in the budget. So instead I took $5 of our grocery money and bought fresh fried chicken. Unhealthy? Sure. But it tasted great! Jon was very happy when I got home, turns out he has been craving it for awhile! It was a cheaper way to curb my craving for going out and Jon has lunch for tomorrow as well.
On this week's menu:
blueberry muffins (to be made on Monday for one of our M review day activities) I will substitute unsweetened applesauce for the oil to make them a little healthier.
bologna and cheese
peanut butter and jelly
Monday- chicken nuggets and broccoli cheese soup for Jon and the kids. I get the soup for my dinner at work.
Tuesday- cheese quesadillas
Wednesday- macaroni and cheese for the kids, leftovers for Jon and a tuna sandwich for me at work
Thursday- Pasta and meatballs, cheesy garlic bread sticks, and ceaser salad
Friday- kielbasa (on the George foreman since digging our grill out would take at least 30 minutes), rice and mixed vegetables
Saturday- Crockpot Cheeseburger soup. I use ground turkey instead of the ground beef in the recipe. SO yummy. Jon requested this once the weather got cold, I was just waiting for Velveeta to go on sale
Sunday- Crockpot Rotisserie Style chicken
