Meal Plan for January 30 – February 5

The biggest unique factor of this week’s meal plan is that I (Kevin) am traveling for work a few days this week. Which leaves us with a need to try to make sure things are simple. Life at home with two kids can be challenging enough, but to do so without a second set of hands for a few days straight makes it a bit tougher. The last thing we need to do is manufacture stress by having a complicated meal plan.

You’ll also see something on this week’s menu that isn’t an entirely healthy choice. This is where financial stewardship intersects physical stewardship. As we continue to cycle through our pantry and freezer, there are a few things that we just plan to eat and start to drop off the intake column slowly but surely. This week it’s fish sticks.

Monday
B- Toast, Applesauce
L- Fish sticks, potato & onion pierogies, fruit
D- Rigatoni with sausage & kale [Neither of us are a big fan of kale and even though that brings some nutritional value to this dish, we’re dropping it off the recipe.]

TO DO TODAY:
Make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffins

Tuesday
B- Bagel w/ butter, fruit/smoothie
L- X [out to lunch with friends]
D- Leftovers

Wednesday
B- Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffin
L- English Muffin Pizzas

Thursday
