Meal Plan- Week of 3/8 and Snack Update

Here is the meal plan for this week:

Monday: Goulash
Tuesday: Pancakes, eggs, and breakfast hash with sausage
Wednesday: Pizza 
Thursday: Sandwiches
Friday: Leftovers or soup
Saturday: Chicken and Rice Stir Fry

Leftover items in fridge that need to be used up: rice, and potatoes

Note: The plan for the leftovers are to use the rice in a freezer meal for next Saturday, and the potatoes will likely become part of  breakfast  hash to go with our pancakes on Tuesday evening. 


The plan for after school snacks this week is to use up the watermelon, and eat as many apples as possible. As we still have several bags left from when they were on sale at Stop and Shop for $1.99 last week. I also plan on having popcorn for at least one night, I tried to make a formal snack plan, but it did not work because not everyone likes the same things. In addition, on Friday it was not practical to do after school snacks because we ate dinner at 4:30.

The Game Plan

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!! 
An important aspect of managing a successful team whether in the NFL or Pee Wee League is the strategy or the game plan.  I have found that in fulfilling my role as family manager of this to be very true. We as humans are creatures of habit and thrive on structure. Obviously it is not possible or practical to write out a detailed schedule, but it serves as a guide. I love a perfectly executed plan, and one of my goals for this year is to organize my time more efficiently and therefore my home run more efficiently. It is a work in progress. My tendency is to jump into things full force, and the results aren’t always successful.  So I’m going to try to take this one step at a time. In order to be successful in getting back on track this week, one of my goals is to get up earlier so I can get into a morning routine. Goal number one for this week is to get up each morning and get my day started at a good time.  I have a list of items that I would like to accomplis…
