Menu Plan Monday- Jan 4

Happy New Year to everyone!

I took some time off blogging with the kids home. It's a bit hard to juggle kids, blogging, the house and the holidays. As much as I love all of you, blogging isn't my top priority. ;)

With the new year, we have new family goals. I like setting goals and not resolutions. Goals are meaningful and attainable. Resolutions always get broken. It may be semantics, but often when you're making big changes in your life, it's mind over matter.

One of the biggest family goals is to be nice. Nice to each other and nice to others. It's one of those simple changes that can change the world.

Our world was also rocked by viewing the documentary Food, Inc. It is a really eye opening work. It's available on netflix for instant viewing. I am more determined to be a locavore...eating locally and making everything I can from scratch. I really can't recommend this movie enough.

So with that in mind, here's our menu for the week:

Sunday: pancakes
Monday: fake out KFC potato chicken bowls
Tuesday: Spinach Canneloni
Wednesday: Shredded Beef and Bean Burritos
Thursday: Pot Roast
Firday: Spaghetti
Saturday: homemade pizzas


  1. Welcome back! I love your outlook on goals for the new year. I never keep my resolutions. I however will try to reach goals.

    Being nice is a great thing. I try to be nice to everyone, but some people just ask for the "I wanta be snarked at because I am just that stupid" look. I am using my blog to get some of that snarkiness out so I am nice in general. Let's see if it works!!!

    Your week sounds yummy!! I have a good one!
