Making Do Menus

I have mentioned how I’m gearing up for a big Once-A-Month Cooking Bash in preparation for FishBaby’s arrival. Part of that is using up what we have in the deep freeze so that I can defrost and clean it. I was pleased to find out that I had quite enough to make dinners for this week. Here’s our dinner and lunch plan for the week:

omelets and salad
PB&J, fruit, and veggies and dip
snacky lunch: cheese, crackers, hard boiled eggs, veggies, and fruit
corn dogs and fries, fruit
chicken strips, veggies and dip
chicken salad sandwiches

grilled chicken legs, macaroni salad, veggies and dip
rump roast, french fries, steamed veggies, rolls
hamburgers and hot dogs, pasta salad, green salad
spaghetti with meat sauce, steamed broccoli, foccaccia
beans and rice
chicken in the crockpot, rice pilaf, broccoli, rolla

  1. I use to do once month cooking too. I’ve been out of the habit. I may need to try it again in the lazy days of summer. Thanks for the reminder. Great menu.

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."
