The past two weeks have not been what we expected as my dad had a massive stroke and is still in critical condition in a coma. My oldest brother, Kel, has reminded me that I haven't blogged in awhile so I thought I'd start back with an easy post and just blog our menu for the next week. I've found a great blog with "kid friendly and affordable" meals. I am impressed with this blog so far because her meal choices are similiar to mine so often, I can use my own recipes for her meal plans yet her plan helps me lay out my weekly menu without getting stuck in a rut! This is only my second week using it though so we'll see if I stay impressed.
Here's the plan for the coming week:
Saturday and Sunday - I'll be on the other side of the state with my mom who is spending all of her time at the hospital with my dad. We'll be eating cafeteria food I'm sure ;-) Darryl and the boys are on their own.
Monday - This is the first night that both boys have baseball practice which puts us at the fields from 5:30-7:00. Makes for a long night. I plan on trying to feed the boys before practice and then have a snack afterwards. So, on the meal plan is Slow Cooker Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches and French Fries.
Tuesday - Pancakes, bacon and sausage, and Fruit
Wednesday - Today is my birthday. At the writing of this, our plans are up in the air. What I do know is that I won't be cooking :-)
Thursday - Quick and Easy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas, Rice, and Beans
Friday - Pizza Ring, Salad and Chips. This is an old Pampered Chef recipe but I also made it using taco fillings. I'm hoping both boys will like this - I'm going to tweak it in a way to make 1/4 of it more Nate's style and 1/4 of it more Josh's style.
