wow...look at that 3 blogs in one day...CRAZY...
and NO the kids aren't sleeping and that was my "new" plan to not blog/be on the computer while they were awake...but they have been having quiet time so I've had some mommy time...
This weeks menu was made with the help of the kids ON the way to the grocery store...
and then the grocery list was made by the girl child...
she was hilarious, writing down EVERY thing I said,
"and we will have chicken salad on Thursday, we already have the chicken, but we still need......burritos or nachos for Saturday, do you remember if we have any pinto beans left? your dad HATES when I buy extra beans..."
wish I would have thought to take a picture of the list, it was 3 pages long, and fun for her to try to find the items on the "list" that we were shopping for...but I will count it as her journaling today so it was a bonus for her!
lunch-leftover chicken, potato salad, and fruit salad from the 4th
lunch-sandwiches using the potato bread that we made (requested by the girl child)
dinner-chicken nuggets and baked beans
dinner-make your own pizza's on English Muffins
dinner-chicken salad on croissant and spinach salad
lunch-fried egg sandwiches
do you have menu items that you remove/add to your list during different seasons? Yesterday I had a facebook conversation with a friend that was having chicken noodle soup....I said that, that was not a 4th of July meal...and others seemed to think it was...I have a hard time thinking of soup in July, also no chicken pot pie, meatloaf, and a lot less casserole type items...
and then the salads seem to multiply in the warmer months...
does the same thing happen to your menu?
