Happy New Year & Menu Plan

By Kira On December 31, 2011 No Comments

Happy New Year Everyone!! Are you planning anything fun for this evening? We are planning to have a family slumber party with some friends and their kids this evening. Exciting day for my kids who typically don’t get to do slumber parties or sleep overs. Should be a fun filled evening of good food, fellowship and I’m sure some kid craziness! My kids helped me make some Muddy Buddies earlier (ya not really a sugar free / grain free but a family tradition :-) ) to bring tonight and I am working on some fun count down activity bags for the kids. FUN times ahead!!

So on a different topic…Menu Plans. This coming week I am planning some simple tried and true budget friendly recipes. They are for the most part Sugar Free / Grain Free / Dairy Free aswell.

Hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!! Ours was good but bus and went way too fast!! Anyways I am trying to get back into routine this morning. As for meals this week we are on week 3 of our paleo journey and it is going good so far…I think I said before I am sticking with it 100% at home (as this is were the majority of our meals/ snacks are consumed) but when we are out and about I am being more lenient at this point.

Menu Plan – better late than never :-)

By Kira On February 9, 2011 No Comments

One thing that really helps with simplifying meal times for me is Menu Planning! Though it does not always get done on time it :-). I usually try to do this on Saturdays so I have time to get the shopping done over the weekend and then am ready for the week when Monday comes. However, this past weekend was a bit crazy at our house.¬† My husband was out of town so it was just me and my 3 little people :-). Saturday consisted of picking up the produce basket at 8:30am, Dentist appointment for all three kiddos at 10:00am and a Birthday Party at Chuck E. Cheese ‘s from 2:30-5:00. In between these events we attempted naps and house cleaning. Sunday was not much better with Church in the morning and a Super Bowl party in the afternoon/evening. This left very little menu planning time untilClick here to continue reading

First Menu Plan of the New Year!! How are you doing on your New Years Resolutions?? I am excited to say that so far I am on track with my goals!!

Ok now for the Menu Plan :-)

Monday – Tomato Rotini Soup w/ Flat Bread Bread Sticks

Tuesday – Potato Soup (I am hoping to freeze a few meals worth of this)

Wednesday – Chicken Tacos

Thursday – Freezer Meal

Friday – Freezer Meal

Saturday – Leftover / mini frozen meals

You will probably notice this year at least for the next few months that I am going to try to plan a couple meals a week as freezer meals and try to cook one meal a week that will re-stock my freezer supply. This will save me some stress and time as it is easier to cook one big meal than multiple smaller meals (also saves
