Week 129 Menu…and Snackpicks

I recently wrote some articles for Kellogg’s new and improved Snackpicks site…and the site launched this week! I’m one of the “Snackpicks Moms” and am even featured on the home page! So far I have two articles on there – tips for Sumer Party planning and Kid Birthdays.

Time for this week’s menu!

– Leftovers (we have quite the assortment of random leftovers right now!)

– Breakfast for dinner

– Chili

– Hot dogs/hamburgers/fruit

– Leftovers

– Eat out

– Grilled chicken breasts (either BBQ or honey mustard) with veggie and potato of some sort

Please share your menus! Fancy or plain, I love reading them! Plus, I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off since the Swiffer SocialLuxe Lounge is literally right around the corner…so my menus are pretty boring and un-inspiring.  Please inspire each other!

  5. I love leftovers. Cobbling leftovers together and making something tasty always makes me feel like I’ve really accomplished something relatively creative.

    This last week, I actually cleaned out my entire refigerator and freezer. I had some pretty interesting leftover science experiments. Now … it’s just time to fill it back up. I plan on perusing through some of your recipes for ideas to fill up my grocery list.
