Week 225 Menu

Good Morning! How about some fresh fruit to start the day?

It’s menu planning time again? I can’t believe it! Luckily, this week doesn’t look like it’s going to be too crazy schedule-wise, thank goodness. Unless I just jinxed myself, of course. We only ate out once last week AND I actually want to eat peanut butter sandwiches. I think the terrible, awful, no good, very bad pregnancy sickness has finally decided to leave me be. (Although, I probably jinxed myself again!)

Kitchen Sink Quesadillas

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
– Salad

Tuscan Tomato Soup
– Crusty bread

– Leftovers

– Homemade hamburgers…I have a hankering

– Eat out

– Breakfast for dinner…maybe I can get Nate to make some omelettes
