Menu Plan Monday - March 21, 2011

Saturday afternoon we took the four middle children on our 8-week grocery procurement expedition. That sounds like we were gone for 8 weeks. More like 3 hours (but there were times where Walmart felt like an eternity!).

Bryan always likes to measure the receipt against the children. Our Aldi receipt came up to Jacob's chin. Walmart is trying to steal Bryan's joy by printing the receipt on both sides. Bummer.

Bryan was so grossed out when he passed by these in Walmart's frozen case that he had to take a picture for Facebook. I love that they don't try to hide that no blueberries were harmed in their making. Bry says he's holding out for scrambled eggs on a stick!

Tomorrow I'm going to post about our new two-month menu plan. It should make planning, shopping and cooking a snap.

This week we will be enjoying:

Monday - Burritos, Homemade Tortillas, Salad

Tuesday (Horse Judging) - Puffy Pancake, Sausage

Wednesday (field trip, AWANA) - Mac & Cheese, Frozen Pizza

Thursday (Karate)- Sweet & Sour Sausage, Rice or Noodles, Green Beans

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday  (4-H Judging Contest) - Broccoli Cheese Soup, Bread Bowls

Our menus for past years can be found at our website. Breakfast menu is here; lunch menu is here.
