Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 - Week 7
Happy Monday meal planners! It's been quite a week around here and I am definitely off my game. Last week, my oldest son lost a friend and teammate suddenly. It was his first experience with the death of someone close to him, that he was old enough to understand. As a mom, seeing her worst nightmare come to life for a loving and wonderful family, as well as her own child struggle with the anxiety and feelings of loss, it's been a week.
But that's one of the beauties of the meal plan . . .even in times of stress, minute-by-minute changing schedules and heartbreak, you're prepared. I had planned and shopped and we ate. We moved a few things around (like the pork tenderloin finally making an appearance this week), and decided on easier items we had on-hand a night or two. But because we had a plan in place, these substitutions were easier.
In this week's plan, I had to take into consideration Valentine's Day, My Birthday and three meetings on the same night as well as an all-day school trip for my teenager. Our busy family lives are never-ending, but the meal plan goes on, and here's what we have planned for this week:
Monday - Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Potatoes and Carrots (carried over from last week)
Tuesday - Happy Valentine's Day - Heart-Shaped Pancakes and Bacon
Wednesday - Unknown - it's my Birthday, but I have three meetings!
Thursday - Tortellini Soup, Salad and Bread
Friday - Pizza Night - Homemade Margherita Pizzas
Saturday - Family Dinner Out
Sunday -Dinner with my Parents (Yeah, someone else cooks!)
