okay, enough with this summer laziness! school starts on wednesday and I’m tired of feeling disorganized. not to mention that the diet my children have been ingesting for the last couple of weeks is NOT something I’m willing to publish on the internet! okay, so we’ve been a bit scattered w/ my mom in the hospital and all that, but still. enough is enough!

  • monday: pork chops; oven fries; green beans (fresh from the garden!)
  • tuesday: chicken nuggets; tater tots; carrot sticks/cucumbers(don’t judge! it’s a busy night.)
  • wednesday: meatloaf; mashed potatoes; green beans
  • thursday: chicken vegetable soup; rolls
  • friday: pizza and green beans
  • saturday: hamburgers; veggies or salad
  • sunday: waffles; sausages

yes, we’re having a lot of green beans right now. between mine (that didn’t get eaten by the deer) and my dad’s, we’ve got a lot of green beans! cucumbers too!

I don’t need to do a ton of shopping even. I’ll have some fruits and veggies coming in my veggie box on thursday. just need a couple of pounds of ground beef, some chicken broth (or maybe if I feel adventurous, I’ll just get a whole chicken and use it for the meat and make stock… we’ll see.), some buttermilk for the waffles, and the sausages… oh, and then I need to try and figure out the whole mystery of what my children will be taking in their lunches. yes, the concept of packing two lunches every day is stressing me out a little!

  1. We had school lunch discussions this weekend and this is what we came up with in each kids' box:

    The Girl:
    1. Apple cream cheese roll up+ carrots and ranch
    2. Cheese cubes, ham cubes, carrots + ranch

    The Boy:
    Cheese cubes, ham cubes, sliced apples or a nectarine

    and both bring a snack of some granola bar and a fruit leather.

    I'm working on a muffin recipe that has fruit, veggies, eggs and almond meal (so basically a complete meal) that the kids like. I'll let you know if that happens. :)

    Good luck!
