Menu for the Week

Thanks so much for all the great ideas of what to do with the hunk of pork I had taking up too much room in my freezer. All of your ideas made me very hungry. I wish I could make every single one of them this week, but I now have plenty of ideas for the future. This week I only have $40 for groceries so I had to do something I already had ingredients for, which is all of the things you've suggested. Whatever I'm in the mood for that day will grace our plates. I'll share on Thursday what we had.

We've been having lots of cold cereal and toast for breakfast recently and I'm feeling the need to change it up a bit. I made some blueberry muffins along with banana muffins this morning, which will help give us a little variety this week. I'm also hoping to make smoothies and toast. My toddler hasn't tried these yet and he's doing great drinking from a big boy cup so we will see how it goes.

VBS is this week so it's crockpot week! Perfect timing because it's stinkin' hot out.

Monday-Crockpot Green Bean Tater Tot Casserole, Steamed Corn on the Cob & Strawberries

Tuesday-BBQ Pulled Pork or Carnitas or Kalua Pork??? (let me know which one you would choose. See comments in the post below for more info)

Wednesday-Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak on Italian Herbed Bread

Thursday-Dinner for VBS


Saturday-Getting to meet my newest niece


Dessert for VBS Workers
No Bake 5 Ingredient Reeces Peanut Butter Bars
