Menu Plan Monday Oct 12

View even more interesting menus every Monday at orjunkie!

Food was more fun this week. Tacos were a hit and so was the beef stew. Plus a new permanent addition... Sunday slow cooker lunch! What a treat it was to come home from church and immediately serve lunch. With nothing to reheat in the microwave or cook in the stove, it was a very relaxing lunch. Sunday lunch will probably be some version of chicken broccoli casserole, per my daughter's request.

This week, I'm not so sure what to make but a plan is better than winging it. Plus, I've also found that when we are all home, it 's nice to have a bigger breakfast and just a light supper. Some nights I even just let the kids have cereal, if they've already eaten well during the day. They get to bed much sooner so hubs and I can enjoy dinner together. (I've combined this idea from 2 friends' advice, I'm glad I found something that works for me!)

Monday is my son's birthday, so, lots of sugar and presents!
Tuesday is a field trip, so, Mc Donald's for dinner.
