Meal Plan

I actually have the meal plan already done for the next two weeks (other than weekends, our weekends tend to be a bit fly by the seat of your pants other than Saturday night when the kids request pizza for movie night.)  Not sure what the kids will have for breakfast on Sunday but we will use our free Bruegger's bagel coupons after Mass to cover lunch.  Things this week are mostly crockpot meals or easy to throw together at the last minute meals because kids 2-8 will be at VBS, kid 1 will be working early in the mornings until about lunch time,  and kid 9 will be hanging out with me.  Sounds like an easy week but kid 1 works about 40 minutes from where VBS is being held and Alan will be unavailable to help with any of the driving.

S: maybe cereal (B), bagels (L), beef stew (D)
M: cereal (B), tator tot casserole which is so not healthy but decidedly yummy and easy to make (D)
T: yogurt (B), chicken and cheesy rice (D)
W: pumpkin bread (B), taco soup and cheddar muffins (D)
T: cereal (B), beef gyros or a close imitation of such made in the crockpot (D)
F: peanut butter and jelly muffins (B), pasta of some sort but I'm not sure what kind since I am trying to go meatless on Fridays but don't want just plain, simple marinara (D)
S: not sure (B), pizza (D)

Snacks will be zucchini bread, granola bars if I get them made, carrots, cucumbers, string cheese, and frozen yogurt along with fruit off our trees.

For your pasta night, did you like the zucchini alfredo you posted a few weeks ago? We tried it and it was a big hit. Even my anti-vegitable MIL loved it and asked me for the recipe. :)It's meatless and came together really quick.

Honestly, we kept not making it. Bad, I know. But good to know it was well received. We still have plenty of zucchini to use up in the freezer. Even though the kids love zucchini bread and are devouring it faster than we can make it, I feel a bit guilty just putting it into baked goods.
