Halfway through July already–is anyone ready for back to school? I can’t believe its starting in just a few weeks here! We had some deviations from my plan last week–its been raining (when I say rain, I really mean torrential downpour) pretty much every afternoon and one afternoon I just felt like pancakes, so that’s what we had. We liked them so much (the Princess ate TEN!!) that I’m making them again this week!
I’m still not bored of eggs and smoothies and they might make an appearance this week, but I need to make some breakfasts that I can grab and go. I’ve made a routine of walking before leaving for work, but the Princess hasn’t been getting up as early so we end up rushing out the door or just getting to work late pretty much every day because I don’t have something pre-made for breakfast. So here’s the plan for this week:
Not-A-Grain Bars subbing apple butter for the blueberry preserves because the Princess is picky about texture.
For me (I never ended up making this last week, so hopefully it happens this time!)–Quinoa Black Bean Salad
For my daughter: beans and hot dogs
BBQ Chicken, baked potatoes, coleslaw
Steak, Baked sweet potatoes, veggie
Leftovers (or soup or a snack supper)
Pizza: I’m going to be trying these new grain free crusts. They look yummy and easy (easy being the key!) I haven’t made pizza crust in a while between sales on frozen and having some bread available, but this looks simple enough that even I can pull it off at the end of a long week.
