Menu for a Busy Week

I am happy to blog again!  Summer is busy.  We school year round and take a break when needed.  Well, it is time for school once again.  As hard as it is to admit I do better when there is a routine.  This week is slated for home improvements, but the children will be working on subjects that do not need my help.  Hopefully, occupped children will help our home run more smoothly!

Baking: Best Bread for children’s sandwiches, Almond-Nutmeg Granola, and French Bread

Monday:

B~~Oatmeal

L~~Lentils/Brown Rice (making extras for leftovers) and for me….

        Spicy Cucumber Soup

D~~Tacos, Salads

Tuesday:

B~~Granola

L~~Sandwich/Salad

D~~Omelets

Wednesday:

B~~Granola

L~~Egg Sandwiches

D~~BLTs

Thursday:

B~~Granola

L~~Sandwich/Salad

D~~Spaghetti/Salad/French Bread

Friday:

B~~Granola

L~~Sandwich/Salad

D~~PARTY!!!  Hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans, potato salad and veggie tray

Saturday:

B~~Bacon and Eggs and Biscuts

L~~Sandwiches or Leftovers

D~~Leftovers

Sunday:

B~~Granola

L~~Beef Stroganoff (in crockpot) served with fresh veggies

D~~Leftovers

I normally do not serve leftovers so often, but I know this will be another crazy week.  We have a list of household projects that need to be completed, a big birthday party for two of the children, a sleepover (the same night), ballet class and recital plus the normal shopping, housework, and child-rearing. So sandwiches and leftovers will be commonplace this week.  There will be a couple of exciting choices like cucumber soup, BLT (absolutely awesome on whole wheat bread and pepper jack cheese) and the party!

Check out lots more menus over at The Organizing Junkie.

Last week the menu did not go so very well due to illness.  The illness that seems to like it here at my house 😦  So if you see a repeat then know we did not eat it last week.  Lunch will be our main meal this week, since that is when dh will be available. 

Dinner will be leftovers/soup and sandwiches.

Soup/Stew: Lentil Stew ( we are finishing this one) and then Autumn Corn Soup (I love this soup and never made it this winter.  Soon it will be to hot for it so…)

Baking:  Granola, “Best Bread”, Cinnamon rolls, sour dough rolls, french bread

Breakfast (in no certain order): eggs, granola, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, fruit smoothie, oatmeal crisp

Monday: Tacos/Homemade tortillas/Rice

Tuesday: Lasgana/French bread/Grilled squash and peppers

Wednesday: Potato au gratin/Broccoli

Thursday: Autumn Corn Soup

Friday: Pizza (this will be at dinner time though)

Saturday:  B-B-Q Chicken/Potato Salad

Sunday: Grilled Chicken Salad

Yes, I am aware that we have ground beef two days in a row at the beginning of the week and chicken to days at the end of the week, but such is life.

Finally an Answer!!!!

I have/had a problem.  Now I have an answer!  Sounds very serious doesn’t it. 

Well, it is if you are in a hurry and can not find the recipe you are looking for.  Or you can never find a certain recipe and you have to call the person YOU gave the recipe to TWICE!! 

Your laughing. 

I know it.

  And some of you are thinking why would she EVER show someone that??? 

Well, I believe in honesty.  And making others shake their head in disgust laugh.  And now I will be held accountable. So here you go…..

Before

Before

My sweet sil came  about a year and a half ago and helped me organize this but some child promptly dumped it. I reorganized it (promise I did) and it was dumped again.  THEN I gave up and have not been able to find anything since. 

And after…..

Oh!  There is no after, because I am tackling this  tonight as soon I post this, plan the week, plan the menu, clean the kitchen, put the children to bed, change the slowly decreasing mountain of misery  laundry around, and find a lovely movie to watch!

Tomorrow the “after”!!!
