Half a Menu

Going grocery shopping with my big belly (I'm definitely bigger than I was with my son at this point!), my toddler son, and the high heat and humidity has me waving the white flag. The grocery carts are so deep here that I can't actually reach the bottom of them with the belly now. I was quite the sight last time. Ha ha. So I'm stretching out the food that we do have till Saturday so I can drag my husband grocery shopping on Saturday.

Tuesday: frozen cheese ravioli (bought as a back up meal thankfully!)
Wednesday: Grilled chicken sandwiches, mixed veggies, and potato chips
Thursday: strawberry pancakes and eggs
Friday: Out to eat or take out

It's a Menu! 7/17-7/23

Nothing exciting. Last week we ended up going to the commissary FOUR times. Good grief that was excessive, but it's what happens at times when dealing with a  toddler and having bad days. This week, back on track!!! I'm a much happier person when I have my menu, my organized grocery list, and everything ready to go each day. These aren't exactly the most hot weather friendly meals this week, but they are meals that my toddler will usually eat without complaint so they're perfect! ;)

Tuesday: Black bean and spinach enchiladas (frozen leftovers from a couple of weeks ago) and mexican rice (cook rice with salsa)

Wednesday: Steak and Spinach Quiche (cooked steak, sautéed fresh spinach, onion, garlic, and monterray jack cheese)

Thursday: Chicken pot pie with biscuit crust

Friday: Steak and Pepper Quesadillas

Saturday: leftover pot pie and salads

Sunday: Chili-pasta skillet

Monday: Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole

And at my husband's request I'm trying this Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes

Sorry Guys and Gals

My laptop decided to break it's trackpad and go nutso and I haven't had my own computer for a bit now. Hoping I'll have it back in another week or so. During this time Squish and I headed back home to visit both sets of grandparents for over a week. Before that we had my little sister (more on her soon!) come visit for a week.

Meals we've had this past month:
BSTs (Bacon, Spinach, and Tomatoes)
Omeletes (spinach, onion, tomatoes, cheese, and bacon)
Baked salmon with sautéed zucchini (really wish I remembered what recipe I used *sigh*)
Red beans and rice
Tomato and Spinach Pasta Toss
Chicken Squash Bake
Sweet potato fries and chicken nuggets
Hamburgers, fresh green beans, and pasta
Homemade coffee ice cream (okay, so not a meal but super yummy!)
Hot dogs (I know, I know - EEK!), corn, and tater tots
Black Bean Spinach Enchiladas  (can't believe my son LOVES these since you can so clearly see the spinach! ha ha!)
Asian Glazed drumsticks, rice, and steamed broccoli (recipe will be shared soon)
Spaghetti with meat sauce
