Weekly Menu

I don't have any food prep photos this week since I didn't prep any food to eat this week HA!  I will say that as much work as food prep is - even just getting fruits and veggies ready to eat - we actually eat more of the stuff I buy because it is ready to eat.  Now, if only I could get my three year old to eat FRUIT Salad instead of his CRACKER salad.  Yes, that's right.  He comes up to me and asks for Salad.  Then says, "I want my cracker salad mom" which is just . .. a bowl of crackers.  HA!

Saturday - First day home which means grocery shopping!

Sunday - The last day of our vacation!  We will grill today - burgers sound good to me with some corn on the cob and fruit.

Monday - I have a roast to use up and have a recipe for a balsmic beef in the crock pot.  I'll add some potatoes and a veggie for an easy "first day back at work" dinner.

Tuesday - Ham and Cheese Quiche, Banana Bread, and fruit

Wednesday - Hot Dogs, Mac and Cheese and chips

Thursday - Today is 4th of July (WOW!)  I'm not sure yet.  (Since I'm writing this the week before we go on vacation).  If the weather cooperates, we like to go to the beach which means we'll have a picnic.  If not, we will probably grill some steaks and have potatoes and garlic bread.

You might notice this is a pretty easy menu this week.  That's the plan.  I wanted to plan ahead, keep it simple, and start out strong after vacation.  :-)
