Hello everybody! I hope ya'll are having a great start to the week. I thought I would share this week's meal plan for anyone looking for kid-friendly meal ideas. The breakfast and lunches are geared more toward Sydney, the last school age child we have at home. She's a full blown teenager but she still loves her kid-friendly lunches. I usually eat yogurt and berries for lunch, or salad and some protein, or better yet, leftovers from dinner.
I'm going to go ahead and get breakfast ready, but Syd is going to help me make dinner this evening. She is having turkey bacon, a blueberry bagel with mixed berry cream cheese, along with a side of sliced bananas topped with chopped walnuts.
I'm going to do a similar version of Syd's breakfast only I'll add a pepper ring with one egg, and spread a little butter on the bagel instead of the cream cheese.
Today in science class we started a new chapter on waves and sound. We also got to watch three students give their science project presentations. "All Greased Out" was our favorite presentation because it was a project that involved experimenting and collecting data on french fries from Burger King, Steak & Shake, McDonald's and Wendy's. The results obtained from the experiment were interesting. As it turned out Steak & Shake served the greasiest fries.
Today in health class Miss Burns was teaching a chapter on personal hygiene. It was all about the skin, your protective covering, the largest organ of the body. The layers of the skin - epidermis - dermis - hypodermis. "Be good to your skin. You'll wear it every day for the rest of your life."
Syd volunteered to help me make chicken fajitas for dinner tonight. They are super quick and easy to make. As I was cutting the pepper into strips, I noticed that it looked like it was smiling at me. "Awe Bell No!"
There's my girl! She's throwing sass around like a spicy chili seasoning. :o) She's way more sweet than sassy though.
It's time to saute the onions and peppers.
We set up a little mini salad bar.

Great job Syd! It's delicious!
Happy Monday ya'll! Talk to ya soon!
Good evening everybody! I just got back home from picking up the last of the groceries. It's a new year and a new meal plan for the week ahead. That's what we do as moms right, keep pressing forward.
I'll share the meal plan below. The breakfast and lunch meals are primarily for the kids. Clint and I are back on our diet. No pancakes or waffles for us unfortunately. It'll be egg whites, oatmeal, protein shakes, yogurt, lots of salads and grilled chicken... blah, blah, blah... you know the drill.
Here's the Walmart haul for the week: Total cost $92.44 - (Family of 4)
Note: I already had the ground beef and a few other items from last week's haul that I didn't use yet.
Here's what I got at Publix:
I cleaned and trimmed the chicken, then split it into three separate Ziplock bags to freeze.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. A quick trip to Target was in order to purchase some Valentine's Day party supplies.
I couldn't pass up a deal at Goodwill. The Daily Bible originally priced at $19.95 through Amazon, was only $2.00 at Goodwill. Now that's my kind of deal. I also scored a gorgeous hand painted GIANT mug from Glory Haus - Laura Kirkland. This type of mug is priced between $15-$18, at Goodwill I got it for a mere $.79. The front of the mug says "The Bigger the Hair"...
the back of the mug says "The Closer to God". If you've ever seen my hair you would understand, that's my kind of mug right there!
Happy shopping! I hope you find a steal of a deal!
Here's a simple meal plan for the week.
I don't know about you but I am one
busy lady managing a home
and a homeschool!
Daily meals matter around here.
They need to be quick and easy to prepare,
nutritious, and kid-friendly.
I've designated "leftover" days
for the dinner meal twice this week,
because they are my saving grace.
If I have any appointments
scheduled or errands to run,
it helps to make double portions of
dinner meals so there will be plenty
of leftovers for those extra busy days.
Happy meal making!
