Menu Plan Monday
This week we begin all of our extra activities, so I made sure that I had an "away from home three afternoons a week" friendly menu planned.  Leah, Sam, and I bought groceries Saturday while Jimmy and the three older children plus their friends ran a 5K race in Memphis at Graceland. I have a few pictures to post about that later.

Here is our weekly line-up:
Mondays:  piano lessons for the three oldest (I run errands while they are there for 1.5 hours) followed by XC practice.
Tuesday:  XC practice in the town about 40 minutes away.
Thursday:  XC practice

Here is this week's menu:

Monday:  baked orange roughy, baked sweet potatoes, green beans, corn on cob
Tuesday:  crock pot chicken for tortilla roll-ups, chips and salsa
Wednesday:  meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green peas
Thursday:  crock pot roast, potatoes, carrots, peas
Friday:  roast sandwiches with gravy

  1. This looks great, Roan!
    Have a wonderful week!

  2. We have one more week without swimming, we're enjoying our annual two week break. I'm excited that we'll be swimming in a different pool for the next two months which means the kids all swim at the same time! That should definitely make dinner easier!


  3. Isn't it nice to know you have dinner waiting when you get home from a busy afternoon out?
