Good morning! The start of a fresh new week! It is 6am and I am blogging! Don't forget to read my last post here to see what's going on with my new routine. The only bummer is that my kids are also awake, so no quiet time this morning. Oh well, better luck tomorrow! Last night I sat down and planned our meals for the next week. We have a few things going on this week, so I won't have to cook every night which, of course, I love :)
Week of July 21stBreakfastOatmeal with fruit or English muffin with Peanut butter/jellyLunchTurkey wrap, Grilled chicken salad or dinner leftoversDinner Plans for:Monday - Meatloaf Burgers from Mix and Match Mama on wheat buns with zuchinni from my garden!Tuesday - Lasagna with a salad. I LOVE lasagna! Love, love, love it! I never make it anymore because it doesn't fit in my "diet." Now that I am losing the diet mentality, I am cooking it up and just making sure to watch my portions. A nice big side salad with help with that!Wednesday - Egg sandwiches for the family - this mama is going out!Thursday - Leftover lasagna with a salad. Aren't leftovers the best thing about lasagna??Friday - Macaroni and Cheese for the kids - Date night for Mom and Dad, Lucky us!Saturday - Sheaffers Teriyaki Chicken with Rice and Green beans.Sunday - Steak with a Pasta salad filled with veggies on the side!
Today I am testing out a new grocery list that I created. Have I mentioned before that I hate meal planning and going to the grocery store? Well I do! So, I made this printable grocery list to, hopefully, make things a little bit easier! I am testing it out at the store later this morning!
This list has things that I typically buy on a regular basis and is broken into sections that follow my grocery store. I made only two columns so that I would have plenty of room to write notes beside some of the items and I could fold it in half at the store to easily follow along. I just crossed out things that I did not need this week, wrote notes next to some items when needed and put extra things on the lines. Here is what it looked like this morning before I went to the store.
