Midweek Menu Plan

I get asked ALL THE TIME what we have/had for various meals. So I thought I would start sharing our weekly menu. I know most people share on Monday but, I have a hard time doing a Monday Menu Plan because, well, we get paid in the middle of the week. Therefore, I shop in the middle of the week, which means I plan our menu in the middle of the week. The first thing I do when I am planning our menu is print off a few Menu Planning Printables from Mommy Hates Cooking. I like using her printable because she includes a space for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snack, as well as an area for your Grocery List and Coupons.

Mid-Week Menu Plan for 7/31-8/6
Wednesday 7/31
Breakfast: Cereal
Lunch: Sandwiches
Dinner: Italian Crockpot Chicken - Recipe coming soon!

The girls and I are actually heading out of town for the weekend, that means hubby has to fend for himself.

Right now we are trying a lot of new recipes, ones that we have not tried before. With school starting soon, I like to have a good rotation of foods. Hopefully we will find some new favorites to add into our "normal" rotation. I love trying new recipes! If you have any you think I should try, let me know!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
