I'm a bit late but thought I would share what we have on the menu for this week. We are still out of sorts from moving so it has been more of a guide than anything but it helps. I enjoy routine and it is even better when I can get back into the grove of shopping and planning our meals. With the boys out of school I have started planning lunch meals as well as snacks. Hey, "Hungry" never leaves this house! I am working on having snacks and lunches that won't sabotage my efforts at weight loss. Every little bit counts and I hate fixing something for the boys then something different for me. Usually I don't eat much then end up grazing the rest of the day and taking in more than if I'd just had sketti-O's to begin with. Please tell me I'm not the only one with this problem!?! Anyway here is our lunch menu:
mac and cheese
For snacks I plan 2 per day. Although they usually ask for more than that....I plan a morning and afternoon snack.....
cheese and crackers
chips and salsa
golden graham snack mix
Southwestern Chicken Nachos
Our side dishes usually consist of the bottled vegis I put up last fall or a cool summer salad. We usually have BBQ goodies added in but we ran out of gas last week and I wasn't sure when Rob would get it refilled so this week I stayed away from BBQ. Now that's not to say it won't get substituted in when the tank is refilled! ;-)
