Meal plan Monday Tuesday

Better late than never, right? This week marks the beginning of Lent, and with it the return if Fish Fridays. Here's what we have on tap for the next two weeks. I'm trying to clear out my freezer of some of the meat that's been there awhile, so I can make way for a partial beef and pig purchase.

Week of March 3rd:

Monday: Fruit, Cheese and Crackers-the first two Mondays of the month are Cub Scout meetings so it's a quick and dirty dinner after homework.

Tuesday: Fat Tusday! I'm trying The Pioneer Woman's new take on pancakes and putting them in mini muffin tins. Use whatever pancake recipe you love and scoop them out into mini tins, bake at 425 for 8 minutes for a crispy edge or 400 for 11 minutes for a softer finish.

Wednesday: rice noodles with tofu and peanut sauce

Thursday: pork chops and applesauce (just try to say it without curling your lip over your top teeth a la Alice.

Friday: salmon burgers and salad

Saturday: Manda's birthday celebration

Sunday: frittata and salad

Week of March 10th:

Monday: Quesadillas and fruit

Tuesday: Taco stuffed pasta shells

Wednesday: Slow cooker Salsa Chicken with brown rice and salad

Thursday: home made pizza: build-your-own

Friday: Grilled Halibut and salad (drill weekend)

Saturday: Spaghetti and Meatballs (drill weekend)

Sunday: Breakfast for dinner; WW English muffin breakfast sandwiches (drill weekend)

For Lent, my kids are giving up Candy! I will be holding them to that. They aren't giving up all sweets, but candy is a biggie because little treats add up over time. Movie night treats will still happen, but they won't be candy.
