Menu Plan Monday - On a Tuesday!


Our taco salad from last week - do you see the refried beans and tortilla chips hiding in there?
So my week started with me standing in front of my office door at work pressing my car key unlock the trunk button on my car key and wondering why my door wouldn't open.  My next thought:  "I sure hope Eric made coffee today because I guess I really do need it today!"

So, yeah.

I managed to feel wide awake about 3pm and by 9pm I was completely wiped out.  So that's why we're posting today!   Today has been much better, by the way.  We had a busy weekend and I guess I was much more tired than I thought by the time yesterday morning rolled around.  Add to that that there was three inches of that fluffy white stuff all over everything outside, and I was ready to go back to bed on Monday morning.

Today has been really good though, so here we are with the Menu Plan post!
John ran to store quick on Saturday and bought $42 worth of groceries including 20 cups of yogurt, a gallon of milk, fruit, salad greens, Craisins, eggs (these were on sale for 99-cents per dozen limit 2)and two frozen pizzas for the babysitter on Saturday to make for dinner (I totally wasn't on the ball Saturday so that was the easiest thing for us to do! They were on sale...).   By the time we got home Saturday night between the two children and the teenage male babysitter they ate two pizzas, 6 apples, 5 cups of yogurt, two oranges and half the gallon of milk!  And my son had 5 pieces of pizza, 4 apples, an orange and two glasses of milk!  I think we're seeing a preview of teenage eating here.
