Menu Plan Monday - May 9, 2011

How glorious it was to take a family walk tonight and then play softball in the front yard until after 9 o'clock! Most of the children have completed their school year, and our weekly activities are slowly lessening. I love May! I feel like I can get more done around my house in May than any other month of the year.

This morning I surprised the children at breakfast with yummy "Milk Shakes." This really gets everyone smiling first thing in the morning!

Combine in a blender:
  • 1.5 cups cold water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 cups non-fat dry milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia (use additional 1/4 cup sugar if you don't have)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid lecithin (use a squirt of non-stick cooking spray if you don't have)
  • 16 ice cubes
We'll be heading out Saturday for our bi-monthly grocery trip. My new 2-month meal plan makes the planning for 9 weeks of food a pretty quick process.

On the menu this week:

Monday - Homemade Pizza

Tuesday - Blueberry Pancakes, Eggs

Wednesday (AWANA) - Franks & Beans, Ho Cakes

Thursday (Karate) - Frozen Burritos, Corn Casserole

Friday - BBQ Meatball Sandwiches, Sauteed Green Beans

Saturday  (Big Grocery, 4-H Aerospace, 4-H Cloverbuds) - Tamale Pie, Fresh Fruit

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