Easy Eatin’

I know, awhile ago, I said I needed to get back to healthier menu options and fewer convenience items. But, that was before last week’s uterine activity.

(I suppose the words menu and uterine don’t really go together, but HEY, this is a MOM blog, isn’t it? You’re used to combining this kind of talk, aren’t you?)

Like I was saying….my good intentions have flown out the window in the name of ease and relaxation, both things that will help me get through the next 18 days. (see my little baby ticker in the sidebar – that’s how I know how long I have!)

So, here’s what’s on the menu this week:

cinnamon rolls
turkey sandwiches and beautiful black grapes from Costco (the kids keep thinking I’m feeding them olives or large blueberries)
taco soup (OAMC), cheese quesadillas, and strawberries and grapes

oatmeal with apples, dried cranberries and pecans
turkey meat, cheese, crackers, and fruit
meat lasagna (OAMC), green salad, french bread

fried eggs, toast, hashbrowns
frozen pizza and fruit
chicken enchilada casserole (OAMC), beans, Mexican rice, salad

taco bake (OAMC), salad

blueberry scones and fruit smoothies
PB&J, fruit
Catalan meatballs (OAMC) and boiled potatoes, vegetables, french bread

lunch out with Grampa?

omelets with ham
baked chicken, rice, and veggies

    Sounds like a fantastic menu to me, you just try to rest and let that little one bake a little longer 🙂

  2. I’m sorry this is an aside…how do you get your hyper links to actually say something instead of just the hyperlink? Know what I mean?

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
