Sunday

L- enchiladas/ refried beans/ brown rice/ green beans
S- popcorn/ strawberries

Of course, we don't always eat these meals in the order that I write them, but I just put a check mark by the meals we have eaten and it helps me know what ingredients I still have in my pantry and refrigerator. Hopefully, this will help with ideas when your tummy comes calling!

P.S. Any any new meal/snack ideas would be greatly appreciated. I get stuck in a rut and we eat the same things over and over again. Preferably, nothing processed, or at least a menu that I can adapt.

P.P.S. Hey Mama's, need school lunch ideas? There are some great ones here, here and here.

I like the links to the bean recipe. I want to try that.

lately, we've been relying on black bean enchiladas and lentil stews of all kinds. cheap, filling, and full of vegetarian protein.

We have homemade chicken enchiladas and Shepherds pie (great way to sneak LOTS of veggies in I put in corn, peas,carrots and then potatoes on top) we always use ground turkey but I went to garners in VB and got lamb the other day I cant wait to use! Homemade pizza is also a great way to throw all kinds of veggies in and they will eat it lol.
