I am trying very hard to keep my computer use to a minimum during Lent. I will let you all know how it went, and what I learned about myself (the good and the not so good) in a few weeks after Easter. I will say that this is the first year, in many years, that I have done as well with sticking to my sacrifice, and in a way it is the most meaningful one I have done.
But back to my reason for this post- my menu. I am still working three nights a week, and Jon is at class one night, so our menus are staying basic, easy and quick for most of the weeknights. I stop working one job (the two nights a week job) in one month and will have lots of time to cook again then!
The plan for this week:
bagels and cream cheese
yo baby and yo kid yogurts
peanut butter and jelly (Owen would go through withdrawls if this was not on the menu several times a week)
macaroni and cheese
salami and cheese sandwiches
*all are served with fruit, raisins, apple sauce or baby carrots
Monday- chicken nuggets and vegetables for the kids (leftovers for me at work and Jon at home)
Tuesday- make your own pizza. I will make mini pizzas for the kids and let them top them with whatever is in the fridge (a great way to get them to eat new veggies I have found!)
Wednesday- pasta with crockpot meatballs (I will take some to work with me) and baby carrots
Thursday- nachos (Jon has been requesting these lately) topped with chicken and lots of veggies
Friday- Fish fillets for Jon and I, fish sticks for the kids. Served with rice and green beans
Saturday- Brinner- homemade waffles topped with strawberries, sausages and scrambled eggs
Sunday- Breaded chicken topped with pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese with broccoli
