Things have been off as far as menus these last few weeks... I'm often feeding the boys way before Richard gets home and then feeding Richard and myself. So we are doing quick easy meals. Soon his work will settle down and we'll be back into real meals again (I hope!)


  1. I think it is so great that you at least try! I have the hardest time with thinking up menus. And I don't use coupons either.

  2. I keep saying I want to do this and I so never get my butt up and JUST DO IT.

  3. I have tried to have sit down meals this week but with sports in full swing we are all fending for ourselves! Good job in the effort department!

  4. quick and easy works for me- I always think your menu sounds yummy!

  5. I love how you have what is planned and then what is actually served. I'm impressed with how close they are 'cause my weeks never end up like that!
