A Time For Simple Meals – Menu Plan Monday, May 12, 2014

Weekly Menu Plan May 2013

I knew starting this month that the last few weeks would include a little guest at our house.  This little guest is a Jack’s friend.  Separately they are both high energy and stubborn.  Put together they have fun, but can also be “emotional”.  It is a short phase in life where simple meals will be good as I can’t exactly leave them to their own devices for too long.

We are also still continuing to eat from the freezer.  When the month started I planned out all my meals.  I really did try to save the simple or pre-made meals for this week, at least for the lunches.

At the time of this month’s menu planning I also wasn’t sure about likes or dislikes.  Taking into account where we live currently, I was pretty sure this wouldn’t be the week for a curry dish or falafels.  I tried to stick to something more mainstream, diet wise, for the area.
