Our Menu (Week of January 22, 2012)

My Pumpkin took english muffins to preschool this week for mini-pizza day.  She loves using the leftovers for egg sausage sandwiches and asked me to take a picture. 🙂

Why I keep forgetting to use my slow cooker is beyond me.  Especially since I love using it and have it included in my menu planning week after week!  Will.not.forget.this.week.  I’m using up a lot of chicken and some frozen veggies from the freezer which makes the slow cooker meals a snap.  It’s a windy, rainy day (ommmmm…bliss) and we are staying in today so no veggie shopping until tomorrow.  I think it’s going to be a good day.


Waffles, fruit, o.j.

Egg sausage cheese muffin sandwiches, banana, o.j.

Oatmeal, fruit, smoothies x 2

Freezer Cooking: 

Since I’m working on cleaning out the freezer by using up a bunch of items this week, I’ll do some freezer cooking next week.

What’s on your menu plan this week?  Is it a cozy rainy day for you, too?
