Menu Plan Monday

I am trying really hard to get back on track with some family meals this week.  We have one more really busy week, and then things are winding down.  I am hoping that we can find time to eat together every night this week despite our business.  I actually broke out my white board this week and wrote our menu plan on it.  Maybe if everyone sees it, I'll be accountable to stick to it.

B-Waffles (Forzen Eggos on sale at Food Lion- not homemade.  I must cconfess because my daughter saw this on the menu, and said- "You're making waffles!!!!" Uh, no.)
L- Older kids at drama camp; sandwiches for Rachel and I.
