Menu Plan Monday

Here is our menu plan for the week!

Sunday: Tortellini Crock pot Soup

Monday: Skinny Enchiladas (I cook the chicken in the pressure cooker I got for Christmas, which I totally love! It is so easy to make the chicken and then easily shred it for recipes such as this)

Tuesday: Turkey sausage (package), Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa, steamed spinach

Wednesday: Spicy Quinoa Stuffed Avocado

Thursday: General Tso's Chicken with fried rice (using the SunBird seasoning packets)

Friday nights we usually eat out. Saturdays we either eat out or we're on our own :)

Menu Plans

I'm going to start posting our menus again. Years ago I used to post our menus, but when Facebook became more popular and I stopped blogging and therefore quit posting our menu plans.

Enjoy! I'll post new menu plans on Sunday nights:

Sunday: Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili (new recipe)

Monday: Chicken Spaghetti

Wednesday: Sloppy Joes, asparagus, sweet potato fries

Day 5: Elf on the Shelf

Day 4: Elf on the Shelf

It took Ryan some time to find Jolly this AM.

Probably because he was hiding in the fridge!

(Also, if you want your son to drink a gallon of milk in a day, dye it green and slap a stuffed Elf on the container...that kid drank milk ALL day!)

Day 3: Elf on the Shelf

Aaaaaaaaand SpiderElf is in the House!

(You'll notice quite a few superhero themed set-ups this year...Ryan is totally into superheros right now).

Day 2: Elf on the Shelf

Jolly delivers Ryan a Christmas tree each year.

This year Jolly hijacked Ryan's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ornament that Grandmama bought him. Ryan was *NOT* happy about it!

North Pole breakfast 2013!!

We had another super fun North Pole Breakfast!

The second Ryan came out of his room and noticed the marshmallow trail, he took off running and screaming, "Jolly's here!!"

We had a great time and I'm so happy we found this tradition to incorporate into our holidays.
