What’s on the Menu This Week

Posted By Jessica Fisher On March 30, 2009 @ 4:39 pm In Meal Planning | No Comments

We’re coming off a fun weekend with friends, so I’m a little slow getting back into the swing of “real life.” This week we have a family field trip [3] planned as well as dermotology and dental appointments to attend to so planning is the key.

In fact, one of our funny little sayings is, “Pre-planning produces peak performance.” Sounds like an inspirational poster you might find hanging in an office cubicle, doesn’t it? But it’s so true! If we plan ahead, we increase our chances of a positive outcome.

And having a plan for feeding the troops goes part and parcel with positive outcomes. Oh! Don’t I know it. Full tummies produce much happier dispositions, don’t they?

Here’s what’s on our menu this week:

Breakfasts [4]
eggs
oatmeal
ice cream and apple pie [5] (April Fools!)
banana bread
smoothies [6]
waffles [7]
pancakes [8]

Lunches
chicken salad sandwiches [9]
Italian subs [10]
a snacky lunch
DIY pasta salad [11]
leftovers

Dinners

enchiladas, beans and rice, salad
eggs, bacon, potatoes and donuts (April Fools!)

corn dogs, fries, veggies, and dip
pizza and salad
