Menu Monday

I'm Stephanie. I work.
I'm married to Aaron. He goes to school all day and coaches varsity soccer all night. Well, not allllll night.
Together we have 5 kids. The first moved out 3 weeks ago and the other 4? Well they soccer, and football, and practice, and need rides, and contact solution, and allergy medicine and new shoes already and ....


This Tribe of mine keeps me running. Like last week -we didn't eat at home but one night. So Menu Monday had to go out the window and instead we packed lunches and ate cereal.

It wasn't glamorous by any means but we made it work.

This week, while we are busy, we're not too busy to at least grab a bite to eat at home. That's exactly why having a menu works for me. Planning ahead means no matter who has practice, a game or, in my case -has to work at night, something healthy, quick and real will be available.
That's how I love my family.
I keep them nourished.
Here's what my Tribe is eating this week...


Brunch - (enjoyed having company for our family meal this week!) Easy Casserole, Biscuits and Gravy, Fresh Fruit Salad & Pumpkin Doughnuts
Mexican Monday - ground beef Burritos
Italian Tuesday - Lasagna
Whatever Wednesday- Crockpot Roast and veggies
Thursday Momma's Choice (Homemade, Oven Fried) Chicken Fingers & Fries
Soup & Sandwich Saturday - Texas Toast Turkey Melts


Bonus: I made this Chocolate Chip Cake & it was yummy!

  1. I'm stopping by for a visit via Menu Plan Monday.
    Woo! This has really blown right by. It's already mid-September. The holidays will be upon us in a matter of time.
    Everything looks delicious on your menu plan. Sounds like you have a very busy schedule.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Colorado and DC.
