menu plan

Menu Plan – April 22 – 28

Hey y’all!  I am back with a much needed weekly menu plan.

It’s been a while, huh?   That past 10 days have been the hardest, most devastating days of my life.  I’m finally beginning to accept that it really won’t get easier and that I have to learn to work through this hurt.  I think that I am also beginning to accept that Kolby isn’t coming back.  Yesterday was the first day that I haven’t begged him to come back.  I know that probably sounds crazy, but something in me thought that if I pleaded with God that he would let Kolby come back.  My faith tells me that Kolby is in a better place, the same place I want to go, that he’s completely happy and at peace.  My faith tells me that God’s plan is perfect, even when I don’t like it at all.  I believe those things 100% with no doubts and I don’t think I could get through this without those promises.  Even so, the selfish part of me just wants him back, wants to watch him grow up, wants to give him one more hug, wants one more chance to tell him just how much I love him.

I didn’t start this post to have a pity party, I promise.  It’s just all I can think about.

Which circles around to the reason I did start this post- my menu.  I’m going to NEED a menu plan because without one,  my kids will be eating hotdogs and mac & cheese everyday.  A menu plan allows me to go on autopilot, I don’t have to think about WHAT is for dinner- I already know so I  just have to get it cooked and ready to nourish my family.


  • Baked Oatmeal
  • Waffles, fruit
  • Pancakes, fruit
  • Biscuits with jelly


  • Leftovers
  • Chicken fingers, fries
  • Refried beans, chips, salsa, fruit
  • PB & J sandwiches, strawberries, cheese cubes
  • Tuna salad, crackers


Here is to a fresh, new week – one where we hopefully get rid of this terrible virus (both kids) and have a healthy family again!

Thanks to for making posts like this possible.
