Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of May 6, 2019

We’ve not done well with eating together. My work schedule makes it difficult for me to eat with Hubby. He usually eats before I get home since he needs to be at work less than hour after I get home.

This week, I’m celebrating multiple events in my life: 20th wedding anniversary, teacher appreciation week/ day, birthday, and then Mother’s Day. So my menu is going to be different.

My Breakfasts

  • Breakfast Burritos
  • Breakfast Sandwiches – Egg, cheese, and turkey sausage
  • Creamy Orange Smoothie
  • Vanilla Bliss Smoothie
  • Cottage Cheese with Reduced Sugar Blueberry Preserves
  • Cherry Turnover from a local donut shop (birthday treat)

My Lunch

  • Pizza – Incentive for 2 of the students I tested.
  • Chipotle – Birthday treat
  • Chicken salad
  • Leftover birthday dinner
  • Yogurt Cups – Greek yogurt, cacao nibs, hemp hearts, and pomegranate arils

My Snacks – Has to be 10ish grams of protein and less than 30 grams of carbs

  • 2 Cheese Sticks and fruit strip
  • Nature Valley Protein Bar and squeezy applesauce – Snack right before dismissal duty
  • Cottage Cheese with reduced sugar blueberry jelly
  • Tuna packet with veggies (sugar snap peas and/or mini bell peppers)
  • Nuts and a mandarin orange
  • Protein packets
  • Jerky
  • Smoky Quinoa and Black Bean Salad


  • Sunday – Family Birthday Dinner – I’m cooking it myself. Trader Joe’s beef sirloin pieces, baked potatoes, corn, watermelon, and Key Lime Pie
  • Monday – Spaghetti with ground beef
  • Tuesday – Chipotle (by one get one free meal)
  • Wednesday – Out to dinner for my birthday
  • Thursday – Creamy lemon chicken over egg noodles – Didn’t get to make it last week.
  • Friday – Ribs
  • Saturday – Out to dinner before P!nk’s concert

Stay kind!

Have a magical day,
