Video & Menu

I'm posting a video here too just so this post won't be so boring. Anyway, we have never made or stuck to a weekly menu in the Lentz house. I just buy a bunch of groceries and then figure it out day by day. It doesn't seem like it would work well, but for us it has. Until recently b/c we are really needing to stick tighter to a grocery budget and only buy exactly what we need. Our meals usually consist of a meat, veggies, and some type of grain or starch. I don't make many casseroles- maybe three times a year! For one, I don't have many recipes for those. Second, most seem to not be very healthy. Third, sometimes they cost more to buy all the cheese, canned soup, etc.

So last week I decided to make a menu. We did really well at sticking to it and it was nice to know what we'd be having each night. I bought the groceries at the beginning of the week and only needed to make one more trip out to get something during the week.

Last week's menu:
Sunday: Lunch- crockpot chicken Dinner- Senior Dinner at Church
Monday: L- leftovers D- Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas
Tuesday: L- leftovers D- Chicken Salad
Wednesday: L- leftovers D- Pappasitos for Mom & Dad's anniversary
Thursday: L- leftovers D- Chipotle style burritos
Friday: L-leftovers D - dinner at Weltzin's

This week's menu:
Sunday: Mother's Day meal
Monday: L- sandwiches D- BBQ chicken, noodles, broccoli
Tuesday: L- sandwiches D- Chipotle Burritos & cilantro lime rice (we loved them so much!)
Wednesday: L- leftovers D- Church meal
Thursday: L- English Muffin Pizzas D- Chicken Fingers, Corn, Roasted Potatoes
Friday: Trip to Belton

This video was taken a couple of weeks ago, the day after his birthday party. I got him this Word Whammer for this bday and they mostly end up on the floor. He was still so wobbly walking and is doing great now! His cute T-shirt was a gift from his Uncle Jason and Aunt Jo.
