Menu Plan Monday June 28 - July 4
There's nothing like bragging about yourself..."I've been so good about following my meal plan"...blah, blah, blah... for things (like life!) to happen and make a liar out of you. Well, I got thrown off a little bit last week. I can't really recall why but a couple of my meals didn't happen so onward they go to this week. I especially dropped the ball on breakfast last week. As I've mentioned before, I try to make breakfast everyday and not buy cereal. I bet I forgot to mention the exception to this self-imposed rule.....summer. Summer ushers in fun and relaxation of not only our bodies and minds but our cereal rule. In the summer I buy chocolate cereal, cereal shaped like aliens, princess cereal, cookie cereal and all must contain....gasp...marshmallows! Pop tarts are also a summer treat as is the occasional ice cream sundae for dinner. Come fall and the beginning of school (mind you, we homeschool so school never really ends) all is back to business....homemade-as-organic-as-possible-breakfast.
We need to be flexible this week...I'm planning but expecting the unexpected (we are eating from the pantry and freezer, trying to use up as much as possible) as we are supposed to close on our house on Wednesday and will be moving the rest of the week. Hopefully!
Have a great week and happy eating!!
