So, most normal people would menu plan and then do their grocery shopping, but yesterday was crazy for us (crap, the whole weekend was between all day track meets, Jazz Band performances, and 2 band concerts) so we pretty much just peeked in the cupboards and looked to see what was low. I scanned a few things into ZipList and off we went to the store. (If you don't use ZipList, I highly recommend it - check it out and I believe the app is free.)
We came home without much real food in the cart, so this menu is certainly subject to change if things don't go as planned. (Also, I only plan dinners. I have a protein shake for breakfast and eat a salad and a serving of Click Espresso Protein Drink pretty much everyday for lunch and the rest of the family is on their own.
Monday: Crock-Pot pulled pork sandwiches. (So easy: pork shoulder in crockpot, pour on bottle of BBQ sauce - we like Bulls Eye because the first ingredient is tomatoes and not sugar - then turn on low. When it's done, shred the meat with a fork and drain off some of the liquid). Serve with cole slaw (directly ON the sandwich if you're me), a salad, asparagus, and maybe some fries.
Tuesday: Turkey tacos and/or taco salad. We always use ground turkey for our taco meet. I can't stand it made with hamburger now.
Wednesday: Leftover pork or tacos for the kids, portobello mushroom pizzas for me (scrape out insides, coat with a little olive oil, grill until soft and fill with pizza sauce and cheese).
Thursday: Grilled chicken or chicken tacos (D likes his in a tortilla but K doesn't). Frozen broccoli. Tater Tots.
Friday: Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread.
Saturday: Church talent show & D is in it, so who knows what we are doing for dinner. Maybe Tater Tot Hot Dish if there's time.
Sunday: Mother's Day - they better plan something nice is all I'm saying.
