Menu Review W3

Standard

You can find last weeks menu here

Highlights from the menu:

Definitely the roasted tomato soup. It was amazing.

It took about 1.5 hours to make, but was so worth it. If you have the time, and the ingredients, I say make it!

Disappointments from the menu:

Leaving the tortilla shells on the counter overnight, resulting in stale yucky shells.

Which meant that we couldn’t have burritos.

Not being about to find a mango anywhere. Uber sad

Being lazy and not making quiche.

Being super lazy and not doing the cheesy chicken and rice bake.

This week, the menu will be simple. I can’t wait to plan it!

Side note, Teags favourite thing to say right now is “meow” and “pa” (as in grandpa), which means he wants to go to Grandpas and see the kittens.

So cute!

One day I’ll get a video of him saying it to share with you all!!

Menu review W2

Standard

This week I pretty much failed at following the menu. It was tragic, I put so much time and energy into planning it and yet I hardly followed it.

Lame.

Highlights from the menu

Definitely the meatloaf. It was amazing.

Disappointments from the menu:

not actually following it

Things we didnt get to try:

– french dip sandwiches

– cheddar muffins

– avocado + egg + toast

– burritos

– avocado salad

– crash hot potatoes

– sloppy joes

– cheesy chicken & rice bake.

main reasons why I didn’t follow it.

1. i didn’t have the ingredients.

2. i didn’t write it in my family binder

3. i’m lazy.

This week the menu will consist of things that I have on hand.
