Keeping Up With...Food (Meal Plan for May 22 - May 28)

We mostly stuck with our menu plan from last week until the weekend.  On Friday night I was tired and did not feel like cooking so I quickly made pasta for us for dinner.  And then on Sunday we decided to check out the new Fresh Eats Market that just opened up the street.  We had a $5 off coupon so we thought it would be a great time to check it out.  It was just OK for us.  We probably won't eat there very often.  But I am still thrilled to have the mini grocery, gas station & pharmacy right there!

This week is another crazy busy week with lots of celebrations.  It's our last week of school and we also finish up Cub Scouts for the year.  We also have baseball and soccer, but those keep going for a while.  Adrian and I will also celebrate our anniversary on Saturday - 11 years of marriage!  We're not doing anything big to celebrate this year since we are slowly upgrading all of our appliances and then will start giving the house a much needed facelift.  But we do have some fun things planned for the weekend.  And finally it's Memorial Day weekend so we'll be grilling out for sure!

Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Italian Spaghetti Squash (carryover from last week)
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday
Wednesday - Greek Chicken Wraps
Thursday - Pasta
Friday - Frozen Appetizers, Cheesecake & a bottle of wine for at home movie date night
Saturday - Piada take out (it's buy one, get one free this whole week)
Sunday - BBQ of burgers, brats and dogs, plus corn on the cob

Water Flavor - Orange, we got a bag for free from my mother in law so I'm using them up before they go bad

Overnight Oats - We loved the new additions last week & I also read an article about how beneficial cinnamon is and since it's in both of the new ones we made, we're repeating those again this week - Apple Cinnamon and Peach Pie.  We're also making our old favorites - Original and Chocolate Peanut Butter.  We are out of chocolate chips so we're taking a week off from our favorite banana chip but it will be back next week for sure!

Clean it Out Challenge - I'm using up some applesauce that was in the pantry in the oats and also some powdered peanut butter.  We're also making a huge dent in our stockpile of syrup with the oats.  The rest of this menu uses up some vegetables that we have that need to be used.
