Menu Monday

Okay, It's time. Like Karen over at Growing in Grace, I too have fallen off the wagon of good health. I am tired of coming up with good nutritious meals for my family.

I can't have eggs, my dd has a FATAL allergy to ALL dairy and my dh feels like if it does not have ALOT of meat in it, it's not a meal. So meal planning has become a chore and no longer fun.

On a positive note, my kids are not picky. They love most any food, and eat A LOT of it. If I did not have all these dietary restrictions, feeding this family would be fun. Brussels Sprouts are one of their favorite veggies for goodness sake!

So instead of waiting till 5 and digging through the fridge for yet another version of the sandwich, I'll plan this weeks meals in advance and shop for the ingredients today! I WILL be organized! I WILL!! I WILL!!

So here goes...

MONDAY - Mac & Cheese (noodles and fake butter for dd)
Fish Sticks
Fresh Brussels Sprouts

TUESDAY - Spaghetti
Garlic Bread

WEDNESDAY - Tacos & Tostadas

THURSDAY - Grill cheese (ham for dd) sandwiches
Chips & grapes (no meat in sight, not a good night for DH)

FRIDAY - C.O.R.N (clean out fridge night)
Or if there are no leftovers - Pizza

By the way, I realize these are not the most healthy of meals, and some of them are not really cooking, but I'm trying to use up what I have. When I plan for next week I'll include more homemade healthy meals.

And thanks to Lauren for helping me get organized!

Looks like a great start! Maybe we can encourage each other along the way! I followed through on Monday, how about you?

UGH! Not even one week in and I may have to drop out.
I still have not cooked the Brussels sprouts and we did not have the spaghetti last night, we ate whatever, from the fridge.
Tonight, we'll have spaghetti and Brussels sprouts tonight! :o)

BTW Ukzoe, you gotta love Google Image! :o)
