Menu Plan Monday - May 3 - 7

>> Monday, May 3, 2010

I can't believe it is May already! April sure seemed to fly by. Only 2 more months until summer vacation. :)
So a few new things with the menu - I'm now eating a full vegetarian diet.  The raw vegan eating really works best for my body but the expense financially is huge.  Maybe if my garden grows I can go back to raw vegan for the summer but for now I'm happy eating vegetarian. Also I have started (this week) making all 3 kids the same lunches in bento box style. I'm thinking end of the week or weekend doing a post with pictures and what's in each box to help others that need lunch ideas for their kids.

So that's all my goings on.  Here's this week's menu:

*Please note - I use organic, local ingredients when possible (including meat & eggs). Also the recipes usually call for all- purpose flour. I usually use a mix of 1/2 whole wheat & 1/2 white or just all whole wheat. Remember a recipe is just something to go by, feel free to change them up for health/your family's tastes.*
