Meal Plan Monday - April 14 - 20

Last week while the 8 year old was on spring break with his grandparents and this past weekend, I've been working on cleaning out the basement and garage to have a yard sale in a few weeks.  Specifically we're trying to get a lot of the 8 year old's old toys he doesn't play with out of the way to make room toys he does play with.  It's been a challenge because he doesn't like change and he doesn't like to give up things.  I think it makes him feel like he's giving up control.  However, he's saving his money for a kayak, and when he learned I sold some toys (that he approved of) for $40 last week, he's been much more motivated to clear out.  Hopefully the motivation will last.  We're about 3/4 the way done with his stuff.

Saturday the 8 year old went to a birthday sleepover at a friend's, so I changed up the meal plan and my husband and I grilled some pork chops for dinner instead.  I made some little herb crusted red potatoes on the side and we had a spinach strawberry salad, thanks to spinach from a friend's garden.  Sunday we continued our meal plan on a budget in honor of Food Bloggers Against Hunger.  Yes, while we didn't eat everything on that meal plan in the order listed, we did indeed follow a meal plan designed for folks with a very limited food budget.

The 8 year old has a dentist appointment this afternoon, so I am making one of his favorites - tacos with refried beans - this evening.

Sunday - Pancakes, Berry Syrup, Bacon
Also make rice crispy treats for this week's desserts, mini quiche cups for my breakfasts, and salad dressing

Monday - Tacos, Refried Beans

Tuesday - Watermelon Shrimp Salad, Bread/Crackers

Wednesday - Southern Fried Fish, Rice, Salad

Thursday - Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce with Linguini, Salad
