Our Menu for the Week of August 19, 2013

Posted by on Aug 19, 2013 in Menu Planning, Our Menu | Comments Off on Our Menu for the Week of August 19, 2013

Hey friends! How are you all doing? It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted because it has been just a tad busy around here. A little over a week ago we welcomed Little Brother and I can’t wait to share a little more about his birthday later this week.

Last week was an absolutely amazing week. We had friends visit, meals made for us and I actually got quite a bit of rest with a newborn. He is a great sleeper and eater so far. We couldn’t be more blessed!

This week for our menu, it’s going to be all about the basics recipes that I know off the top of my head. Nothing fancy, just simple homemade meals because you know I’m not wonder woman. Yep, that cape disappeared along time ago! :)

Anyways, I hope you are all doing fantastic and I hope you stop by again later this week to read about Little Brother’s birthday.

Our Very Basic Menu for the week of July 22, 2013

Posted by on Jul 22, 2013 in Menu Planning, Our Menu | Comments Off on Our Very Basic Menu for the week of July 22, 2013

I normally do all the cooking and grocery shopping for our house, but in the middle of the week last week after my 34 week doctors appointment, I found my little guy might want to come a little sooner then expected.

Since Wednesday last week I’ve been on bed rest and my husband and grandmother have been helping out tremendously! For me it’s hard to be  on bed rest because I love being busy and active. But I’m grateful that I’m able to be at home and manage my contractions with rest and water verses being in the hospital.

Since I’m having to lay down or stay in bed, I can at least do a few productive things like menu plan, plan activities for Little Buddy, read and study for my class. Oh and write a blog post or two. :)

So our menu this week isn’t anything crazy spectacular just the basics and nice and simple!

Our Menu for the Week of July 1st – In The Garden

Posted by on Jun 30, 2013 in Menu Planning, Our Menu | Comments Off on Our Menu for the Week of July 1st – In The Garden

Last week we had a ton of fun with the  Virtual Book Club Summer camp hosted by Toddler Approved blog. We did a lot of activities, reading and we made some fun snack and lunch ideas. It was so fun to try to create a lady bug sandwich, lady bug strawberries and caterpillar celery sticks. :)

Here is a few pictures from our week.

This weeks theme is in the garden. We got all our books for the library and I picked out snack ideas on Pinterest.

There not too many changes for our menu this week because I’m keeping it simple by making just about the same thing that we had last week. A few different recipes for dinner and garden inspired lunch and snacks.

Well, we are off to another exciting week, I hope you have a fantastic week!

  • Trail mix granola, yogurt and fruit
  • Breakfast casserole and fruit

Our Menu for the Week of June 24 – Bug Week

Posted by on Jun 24, 2013 in Menu Planning, Our Menu | 2 comments

A few weeks back one of my friends from back home had mentioned there was a virtual book club  at Toddler Approved blog. I was instantly excited about this because I love having a theme or activities to do with my little guy durning the week, but sometimes it takes a lot of time to come up with ideas and then plan it out. After looking at the themes they had planned for each week, I began coming up with fun food idea’s I could do to incorporate into our menu. You’ll notice on some of the lunch and snack items that they have the word “bug” in them. Of course they are not real bugs, but food that is made to look like them.

I have a few more activities and books to coordinate with this week theme on Pinterest and be sure to check out Toddler Approved Virtual Book Club Summer Camp if you have little ones at home too! It’s going to be a lot of fun!
