Lunches-

  • Tues- soy butter/jelly sandwich OR leftover roast
  • Wed- cereal OR grape jelly sandwich
  • Thurs- quesadilla OR burritos
  • Fri- pizza

I sat the kids down last night and had them each pick one main, one veggie, and one fruit for each day this week. Then I gave them the option of adding another fruit or veggie if they want, as well as one dessert and one drink. I will be putting together (cutting, cooking, bagging, etc) their choices to in  new “lunch drawer” in the fridge.

I haven’t been grocery shopping yet. We woke up late this morning. =( I’ll get out and do that in a little bit. Then when I get back I’ll update with my totals. It’ll probably be closer to the $80 this week, mostly because there are a lot of good deals on this week that I want to try to catch. As far as what we need for this week’s menu it’s pretty much just the fruits, bread, milk, and cereal.
