I did not stick well to my plan last week.  I ended up not getting my shopping all done for the things we needed.  But on the plus side, I didn’t actually shop for anything that wasn’t on the plan either.  We had pizza one night (mom was in town), and went out one night (had a birthday party to attend) and otherwise cooked from the pantry and freezer, so I can’t beat myself up.  Too much.

Menu Plan Monday

For breakfasts we always have oatmeal, cold cereal, scrambled eggs, toast, freezer muffins, yogurt, cottage cheese and fruits to choose from.  I also keep us stocked with lunch meats, cheeses, fruits, veggies, etc for bentos.    Even when not specifically listed, I usually have a mixed greens salad and fruit available for dinner.
