Menu Plan Monday: January 8, 2018
Happy Monday! Thankfully this week is starting with higher temps than we’ve had in a while – it’s currently 20 degrees here in NY and that feels warm! I know many of you have been suffering in this cold too, so hope you’re staying warm and healthy. (FYI, one way to do so is to enjoy a bowl of my Tomato White Bean Soup!)
Last week’s menu didn’t get followed 100% to a T since we ended up having snow days Thursday and Friday, so you may see some repeats from last week’s menu on this one below. I’m heading out of town on business Thursday night so this week I’ll be trying to get some extra meal prep done to leave food for my hubby and the girls. Plus I’ve made part of my menu for next week so that snack and lunch packing go smoothly for the hubs!
It’s always a little nerve wracking for me to go away when I need to rely on other people (especially babysitters) to feed the kids. I’d love to hear how other moms and dads handle that when they need to travel and leave the kids at home. Let me know in the comments below!
