Back to Routine

It is so hard for me to believe that the holiday break is over. Starting tomorrow, it is back to our normal routines. As part of the normal routine, I actually sat down and did the week's menu plan. Recently, I had been only planning a few days out, which was fine, but I did find us running to the store more frequently during the week. I was able to successfully empty my deep freeze to defrost it over the holidays, unfortunately, I moved some of it to my refrigerator, now my goal is to use all of that helps ensure rotation.

This week we are trying a few new recipes and enjoying a few family favorites. Winter sports and winter workouts for spring sports are starting up, so we are starting to have a few night time activities and a few weekend events entering our schedule.

Cincinnati Style Chili

Chicken Patty Sandwiches and Qrunch Burgers

Crockpot Lemon Chicken

Personal Pot Pies

Chipotle Glazed Meatloaf

Spaghetti Gratin


Now that the kids are back to school, breakfast will be cereal, oatmeal or toast most mornings and lunch will be a mix of the hot plate lunch at school or a packed lunch from home. My husband and I will stick with our standard routines. I do hope to get back to packing more. I seem to eat better when I pack, plus I am hopeful that it leaves me some time to walk at lunch(if the weather allows).
