Our Menu (Week of November 25, 2012)

Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Spaghetti

I’m back to using a menu plan after WEEKS of not having one.  It was a bad idea to not have a plan…a very bad idea.  No way am I going without one during the busy weeks ahead.  This week I’m keeping it easy and will use as many pantry and freezer items as I can.  I have a lot of chicken in the freezer so we will have a bit of chicken overload, but no one has ever complained about multiple chicken days around here.  I dare em… 🙂

Breakfasts

Note: I often eat a different breakfast than the ones I feed my family.  For example, lately I eat a bit of Greek yogurt with fresh berries, peaches, ground flaxseed, wheat germ, almond milk, and a few other ingredients.  It fills me up and is incredibly nutritious.

Breakfasts

  • Herbed egg-in-a-hole, berries
  • Oatmeal with bananas, dried cherries & flax, smoothies x 2
  • Breakfast casserole, fruit, o.j. x 2
