With Shane going back to work today I changed up our menu plan a little (ok, a lot) from what I posted at the beginning of the month, but schedules changed, I got tired and came up with some leftover and easier meal nights and so here is what I plan on making this week. Also have I mentioned I am obsessed with food? Yes it's true but I will post on that another time.
With Shane gone for dinners again, me becoming increasingly bigger (33 1/2 weeks in!), and trying to come up with a new engaging schedule for Lincoln I am going to try to utilize my new crock pot more and work on meal prep work while Lincoln is sleeping. The pre-meal-time-melt-down-I-want-munchies-and-Mom part of the day definitely makes me feel defeated so I am going to try to be more intentional with that. I had wanted to try to get all the prep work done on Sunday afternoon but it was too nice and sunny so we went for a walk as a family, met some new adorable neighbors (why couldn't they live next to us?) and played out in the back yard for a lot longer than planned. Then I was too tired and we didn't get Lincoln down for a second nap and they we had the fun time I mentioned earlier. So I'm going to try to avoid that the rest of the week.
