Menu Plan Monday - March 14, 2011

Saturday, while I was out shopping for fabric, Bryan took six of the children to the AWANA Grand Prix. We had four racers this year. Sometimes I try to calculate how many cars we will have made by the time our youngest is done with AWANA. Then I get overwhelmed and stop thinking about it!

The children had a great time even though no one brought home a trophy. I think they always like the snacks the best! Here's what their cars looked like:

We've got another nutty week and weekend coming up. I hope to have my new, two-month menu plan up by next Monday. This week we will be enjoying:

Monday - Black beans, cheese & chips

Tuesday (Horse Judging) - Dried beef gravy over toast, eggs

Wednesday (AWANA) - Mac & Cheese, Frozen Pizza

Thursday (Homeschool Group, 4-H Meeting, Karate)- Turkey Ranch Wraps, Potato Wedges

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday  (4-H Judging Contest, Big Grocery) - Take & Bake Pizza
 Our menus for past years can be found at our website. Breakfast menu is here; lunch menu is here.

  1. Hey nice to "meet" you-I jumped over from the menu plan meme. We have four kids and plan about a month out at a time. Saves big time on our budget.
    My kids love the food at the awana car night too. funny how food is always better to them when they're not at home. :)
    Blessings on your week.
