The menu planning wagon, that is. I've been very relaxed in my menu planning this summer. Actually, I've been very relaxed about any type of planning!
But it's time to get back on track. CJ started school today, so I decided to get a little more organized about eating! He has decided he wants to try getting up really early (5:30-ish) and get started on his work.
I am NOT planning to be up that early!
That means I need to have something ready for him to eat when he's hungry, which will probably be before I'm awake. So I am planning breakfasts now.
And so we're not rumbling around in the kitchen trying to decide what's for lunch, I'm adding lunch planning as well.
Hopefully this will keep a little variety in our menus, and we're not eating the same thing every day.
I don't know whether CJ will stick with his early morning schedule or not (last year, he liked doing his school work for the day the night before. I let him decide what works best for him - as long as it gets done!), but I like the idea of having breakfasts planned out, so I'm going to do my best to stick to it.
Anyway, here's what this week looks like. Dinners have to be super quick and easy this week, because we will be at the church almost every night. We have basketball evaluations three nights and then church on Wednesday night.
