So last week's attempt at menu planning turned out pretty well - the kids actually liked the new items and we stuck to the plan for 6/7 days. I'd call that a resounding success given my family of picky eaters.
This week's menu plan is resulting in some additional challenges. I have parent-teacher conferences 2 nights this week and on Saturday we will be out of town all day for a jazz competition. The good thing - I don't have to cook as much. The bad - more opportunities for crap eating.
Anyhoo...this is what's on the menu for the week.
Monday: Kids will make themselves dinner (probably sandwiches, a frozen pizza, something like that). I'll eat whatever the parent group feeds us so I have no clue if it will be healthy for me.
Tuesday: Skillet Lasagna (this is a kid favorite and is more skillet pizza than lasagna. I should post the recipe sometime). Salad and garlic bread
Wednesday: Burgers on the grill (I'll eat a veggie burger probably), tater tots, green beans.
Thursday: Kids fend for themselves again while I eat whatever the school provides.
Friday: Turkey tacos (we always make our tacos with turkey burger) & refried beans (for K's tacos cuz she doesn't eat taco meat)
Saturday: Jazz Competition at WMU. Go out to lunch and dinner and hope to make 1/2 way decent choices.
Sunday: Shoyu Chicken Thighs (these got bumped last week), broccoli, brown rice.
Not very original this week, but sometimes we have weeks like this where the schedule is just crazy and goes out the window.
