Week Two – Menu at Brown Dog Trail

This week arrived on time and I’m in a bit of a panic that my menu plan isn’t done for the month. I wasn’t ready for Christmas Break to be over (yes, we take breaks in our homeschool), and our schedule got very busy, very fast. Still behind a day or so, I’m brainstorming this menu as I am writing this post. Mr. K and I have a hot date this Friday: dinner and grocery shopping. Those with kids will understand!

The rest of the month will be planned before our date, and life will hopefully resume a normal temperature soon. So here we go:

January 8,2017 – January 15, 2017

  • Sunday, January 8 – Refrigerator Cleanout. We will not be having leftovers again tomorrow night. We all refuse.
  • Monday, January 9 – Mississippi Roast Beef (maybe this one), Mashed Potatoes, and Sautéed Veggies.
  • Tuesday, January 10 – Taco Night Returns!
  • Wednesday, January 12 – Nachos or French Dip.. depends on leftovers. 
  • Thursday, January 13 – Breakfast (scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, and toast. Possibly a breakfast casserole).
  • Friday, January 14 – DATE NIGHT! Grandparents are in charge of dinner.

Week One – Brown Dog Trail Menu

There’s a trail near our place named “Brown Dog,” so hence, the name of our menu. Menus need names.

Week One has passed, so I am posting past tense. Working on getting my game back. Ha!

January 1, 2017 – January 7, 2017

  • Sunday, January 1 – I believe we had breakfast for dinner. Long story, and it’s not that interesting unless you like living without a plan. No plan makes me crazy, end of story.
  • Monday, January 2 – Prime Rib, Sautéed Veggies, Steak Fries. Was supposed to be January 1, per our family tradition, but the “no plan,” thing…
  • Tuesday, January 3 – Prime Rib Dip and Salad.
  • Wednesday, January 4 – McDonalds. Yup, I am that mom. AWANA night means eating on the run. Or in the car. I don’t run.
  • Thursday, January 5 – Pretty sure we had breakfast again. Scrambled eggs, sausages and toast.
  • Friday, January 6 – Fried Chicken and Salad Bar. Yum.
  • Saturday, January 7 – Super Bowl Playoffs Night (Go Hawks!) We are like champions. Hot dogs, tater tots, and salad.

Next week will be better.
