A Menu!! A Real Life Menu

The Shrinking Kitchen

Welcome to my very first edition of writing out a Menu! Everyone has been encouraging me to write out a menu for sometime and I always make some excuse. I decided to follow instructions and do what they asked me to do cuz this week I'm trying to do things differently! I finished planning school lessons thru the end of May (we homeschool year round with periodic breaks for mom to regroup!) and I decided since I was planning lessons maybe I should plan meals, too! Maybe being organized will help me accomplish more! I can only hope, right?!!

So here are dinner meals...

Sunday- spaghetti, salad, bread
Monday- chicken Parmesan, spaghetti, salad
Tuesday- grilled chicken breast, salad, whole wheat roll
Wednesday- eat out meal
Thursday- turkey Parmesan (cooking light), salad, whole wheat roll
Friday-chicken tacos, chips
Saturday- leftovers

Lunch around here is pretty simple - sandwiches or tacos and I'm going to try to include fruit or some carrots in it too.

Breakfast is always the same - Greek yogurt w/apple and almonds for me and That Other Kid eats bread and a couple of slices of bacon for protein.

Snacks - nuts, fruit, and hopefully the cookies Lissa told us about yesterday!

Best part of this menu? I Fixed Spaghetti Today! How's that for a menu and sticking with it?

I'm linking up over here cuz I love them!!
