Well, hello, there!  Happy Monday to you.IMG_1837[1]

I’m sitting here sipping a cup of my favorite tea, nibbling on a slice of pound cake and contemplating my week.  I’m thinking about what I’d really like to do versus what I have to do…

What I’d like to do includes some crocheting/knitting, a hike on the mountain, some baking and maybe some apple picking.  What I have to do includes work, laundry, early release for school and stuff like that.

Hmmm… which would you prefer? Yeah, me too.

Ah, well, it’s not to be, I guess. I’ll just fit in the fun where I can.

Here’s what I have planned for dinners/lunches this week.  The girls have requested no sandwiches this year for their lunches, so I’ve gotten creative and we’re doing a lot of salads, leftovers and things like that in their lunchboxes.  They’re loving it and I’m happy to see the empty containers coming home instead of half-eaten sandwiches.

Dinners:

Lunches:

  • Monday: bagel bites, apple/clementine, yogurt & granola bar
  • Tuesday: leftover ham slices, cheddar cheese, crackers & fruit
  • Wednesday: chili mac in thermoses
  • Thursday:leftover stir fry rice
  • Friday: salads with grilled chicken

I’m also thinking about making a batch of my baked oatmeal for breakfast and possibly an apple cake for snacks.

What’s cookin’ in your kitchen this week?

  1. I’m stopping by from Organizing Junkie’s menu link up.
    I love your lunch menu! I struggle with lunches for us here at home. I have 2 little ones and some days it’s tough coming up with good stuff to eat.
    And fajitas… I think that’s one of my top 5 favorite meals. Your menu looks delish!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I am just now starting lunch menus but am finding that I really, really like it – as do my kids. It makes my mornings so much easier and I’m finding that I actually start making lunches the night before because I already know what I’m going to do… and that is just wonderful for a non-morning-person like me.

  2. I’m always interested in some new recipes to add to my Recipe File Box. That’s why I love MPM!
    Looks like there’s going to be lots of yummy meals eaten this week.
