Menu for the Week

Post #100 and it's a menu.  Ha.  That's how much my job of being a mama involves feeding this crew of little men.  :)

M - Eggs & Toast & Grapes
Impromptu out for sandwiches! (we had a baseball glove to buy today!)
Pasta w/marinara and Organic chicken sausage, spring onion & parmesan biscuits

T - Soaked oats breakfast cake, fresh blueberries
PB & J, fresh veggies and apple slices
Sloppy Joes (yes indeed!), salad from the garden

W - Waffles with berries & cream
BLTs (we have lots of lettuce right now)
Quiche (onions from the garden and cheddar and ??), salad, and banana bread

Th - Soaked oatmeal w/ raisins and nuts
Hummus, feta, tomato, cukes and pita, fresh fruit
Tuna melts, fresh veggies/salad

F -  Eggs in a nest, fresh fruit
Pigs in a blanket, carrots and red peppers
Roasted lemon chicken, mashed potatoes, veggie of some sort

S - Homemade whole wheat monkey bread, fresh fruit
Black bean & rice burritos with fixin's
Chicken artichoke & spinach calzones with marinara for dipping

S - Granola & yogurt & berries/bananas
White chicken chili (crockpot recipe), homemade beer bread

I also have a rather loosey goosey plan of making homemade whole wheat graham crackers, and whole wheat snickerdoodles.    And yes, the weeknight meals are a bit "sandwichey" but that's because it's teeball season and we have practice tuesday, wednesday, and thursday!  Oi!  The eldest boy got his new glove today and he is sooo keen on it.  We even bought a real aluminum bat and ball which was much needed because the plastic one is falling apart from much use.  I tried my hardest to convince J to get the padded foam bat, but it didn't work.  I have an irrational fear of someone becoming injured from an unintentional hard swing.  eek!  *Deep breath.*

Anyway........that's the plan for the week.  I've been realizing more and more how crazy, interrupted, and spontaneous life is these days.  I'm trying to just go with the flow a bit more and not worry about what the plan is so much.  Like Jesus said, "each day has enough trouble of it's own..."  I'm glad He knows how it is, so I don't need to worry.  :)  

Check in soon for some tee ball pics!
