This week is a back to reality sort of week. I start back to work and Lily begins classes on Tuesday. We have decided to change the way we plan and instead of planning a month at a time, we are going to make a list on Sunday and shop from the freezer. This way, we can add and change as the weather and our activities start to change. This week Thursday night is a hectic night with a quick dinner needed. I am also trying out several new to us recipes. Tonight, Monday, the creamy chicken spaghetti was a huge hit!
Breakfast- I have really focused on getting some easy to finish breakfast plans together for the week. Saturday– BLT sandwiches – Sunday-English muffins with choice of egg, sausage or Nutella, Monday- Smoothies for the kids and Matt I have a breakfast burrito.
