What We Ate, May 21 - 27

Another week, another menu.  Meal planning can seem like a chore sometimes but I'm still glad that we're taking care to use up what we have at home rather than eating in restaurants. We get more nutritious meals when we eat at home, and we certainly spend less money on food.

I think we did pretty well last week.  We're getting much better at planning meals that will work around my office hours.  My husband is pitching in with meal prep (and housework too!) and I'm doing better with the planning part.  No last minute runs to the grocery store at all last week.  That alone spells progress to me.  :)

Here's what we ate last week:

Monday, May 21:
Tuesday, May 22:
  • Breakfast - Apple pie and cheddar cheese
  • Supper - Spinach, onion, and kalamata olive pizza, apples
Wednesday, May 23:
Thursday, May 24:
  • Breakfast - Granola, oranges
  • Supper - Homemade McMuffins (baked eggs, cheddar, homemade mayo and homemade hamburger relish on crispy English muffins), grilled tomatoes, canned peaches, Greek style yogurt
Friday, May 25:
  • Breakfast - Cheddar corn muffins, apples
  • Supper - Rotisserie chicken, baked potatoes, carrot, apple, and raisin salad, ice cream cones from the Dairy Queen for dessert
Saturday, May 26:
  • Breakfast - Eggs, toast, prunes
  • Supper - Chicken nachos, canned peaches
Sunday, May 27:
  • Oatmeal and stewed rhubarb
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches, carrot and celery sticks, sliced cucumbers, apples

Looking good and that's great your husband pitches in and helps out! :-) Now you will have to post some pictures of you and him so we can see what you look like too :-) Perhaps preparing some meals together?
Have a wonderful day!!

Good idea Jill. :) We're both pretty camera shy but I'll see what I can do.
