Meal plans and the week ahead

We have another busy week ahead of us. Today we are going to church in Swartz Creek. Not sure what else we'll do today. We may go hiking if the weather is nice this afternoon. Monday I'm going to a free Zumba class at the beach in Linden. Tuesday afternoon I go back to the dentist to get my crown put on. I'll be glad to get the temporary one off. And hopefully this is the end of it and I won't end up needing a root canal in the near future.  I think Kevin is going biking with some buddies on Tuesday night.  Wednesday I am going to PF Changs for dinner with a bunch of people from work to send off my old boss. She's moving to Virginia and we're all going to miss her so much! Thursday I am going to Sault Ste. Marie for work. Thursday night is also the Back to the Bricks cruise down Saginaw that we're hoping to go check out. Friday is my flex day. I'm not sure what our plans will look like yet. Its possible we'll end up in Grand Rapids to visit some out of state family. Or we might meet up with my cousin and her son to go to the Genesee County Fair.  But I probably should really stay home and can some tomatoes since we are getting a good amount of ripe tomatoes. I'd like to do a batch of chopped tomatoes and a batch of salsa. Saturday morning, we'd like to get up and go for a family bike ride. I might can a batch of pasta sauce, too... we'll see if I get enough tomatoes this week yet. Otherwise, I'm not sure what we're doing on Saturday.

Here's what I'm thinking for meals...

  • Fried eggs; bacon
  • Smoothies
  • Hard boiled eggs; fresh fruit
  • Yogurt with crispy nuts and fruit
Lunches and snacks:
  • Leftovers
  • Roasted beet and feta salad
  • Frijole mole dip with cucumbers and carrots
  • Apple slices with almond butter
  • Crispy nuts
  • Fresh fruit and veggies
  • Peach fruit leather
  • S - grilled bbq chicken; grilled zucchini; fresh tomatoes; grilled peaches
  • M - grilled steak; grilled baked potatoes; green beans
  • T - zucchini nachos; corn on the cob; fresh fruit
  • W - leftovers
  • Th - eggplant/zucchini parmesan; green beans; corn on the cob
  • F - crockpot beef roast with carrots, kohlrabi, and corn on the cob
  • Sa - tbd... we'll see what we end up doing.

Sounds like a busy week. Hope the tooth stuff goes well. I have to get 2 fillings this week. Yuck.

We'll have to talk about Saturday plans. I'm not keen on the lunch thing. We might go for a few min. and then come home. We'll see. I don't care to try to manage 2 kids by myself at the park attempting to get one to eat. Maybe I'll feed us at home and then stop by for a few min. We'll see. Let us know what you're thinking.
