What is on the menu for the week?

Karina has been a bottomless pit. I know that seems like it shouldn't be a problem, because most toddlers won't eat anything, but to have to feed her every 40min to an 1hr...it is ridiculous! (Especially after I just put her back to bed at 10:30pm because she wanted a snack). I'm trying not to, but if she's hungry then I will give her a snack. I am just really trying to keep it healthy. Maybe its because she started walking this week...

So, as I've mentioned before I have started doing meal planning for each week and then shopping just for what I need. It has made a difference in our shopping budget and the amount of space in our fridge!

Its been a while since I posted a meal plan for the week...so, here is what I have planned for the week: (who knows if it will actually happen, but most of it is what I have on hand)

That is a fairly typical week for us. It really has taken a lot of the stress out of cooking to have the meals planned. Things always come up though, so having a couple nights of "leftovers" or keeping pasta and jarred sauce or tortillas, canned black beans and cheddar on hand can make easy pasta or quesadilla nights or allow you some flexibility.

Karina finally meet a cheese she didn't like this week (to my surprise)...Gorgonzola. She really is her father's daughter...

Happy cooking!
