Amazing how may have asked! So here is our weekly menu for this week. With four-five kids at the house doing the day time-we need to have food ready all day long. I have been reading a new book called The Secrets of Happy Families. So far I am enjoying this book and have help seen benefits in the Family Dinner Chapter. I love how families are rethinking family meal time.
But rethinking takes time. As we are starting T-ball season now, and Monday’s we always have dance- on somedays everything starts at 5 p.m. So dinner will be at 4p.m. And then there will be a special healthy dessert later. I don’t know what that is yet…but this is a goal.
I know it has been a while for a full week list….so drum roll-nothing fancy!
B-Yogurt and Breakfast Bars
D-Homemade Chicken Dumplings (Well the Dumplings are frozen from the store)
B-Eggs and Bacon
L-Fish Sticks (We eat the ones from Costco)
D-Dinner at Church (Lenten Dinners)
B-Frozen Pancakes or Waffles (homemade -we make extra and freeze them)
D-Tuna Noodle Casserole
We have a habit of eating out Sunday and snacking the rest of the day. Even trying to change this it is 12 years in the making and will take some time to change. We are in the process of trying to sell our house and moving so-this will be adaptable due to viewings of the house.
While I do cook in bulk, I find it does not work well for us to plan meals this way. But it is nice to have things to pull when I need them. So I will double batch cook and freeze. Also I use what is on sale and buy my meat at Costco every other month.
So over the next few weeks and months as I will look at new ways to have family meals – to spend time together at meal time-to feed my always hungry child. AND keep the kitchen clean. Yeah I don’t know about that one!
