Food and Clean Underwear

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 22, 2008 @ 11:41 am In Meal Planning | 2 Comments

[3]The new normal has been rather elusive this year. Survival is the name of my game these days. And, I think I’m okay with it. Food and clean underwear – if we’ve got those, we’re okay.

But, I know from experience that if I don’t have a plan for food, we’ll be eating way too much take-out which is expensive, fattening, and not all that tasty.

We don’t always follow the plan I make each week. In fact, lots of meals got shifted last week. But, having a plan means I have some sort of direction to follow come 4 pm. This week we have opportunity to visit with family and enjoy a few days off from work and school. And, we are rejoicing in Jesus and his coming [4]. Great cause for celebration. And at our house that means great food.

Monday
oatmeal and applesauce
chicken salad sandwiches
Special dinner with Family: grilled tri-tip, cheesy potatoes [5], caesar salad, pumpkin rolls, pretzel berry dessert [6]

Tuesday -
ham and eggs
snacky lunch
baked chicken, rice, steamed carrots

Wednesday
granola, yogurt, and fruit
chicken, bean and rice burritos
Christmas Eve dinner: ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, biscuits, G’ma’s Gingerbread [7]

Thursday – Merry Christmas!
cinnamon rolls, bacon, eggs, fresh pineapple
lasagna [8], salad, bread sticks
leftovers

Friday – hit the road for a trip to see family for the weekend
