Meal plan for May 13th - 19th

Helllllllllllo friends!  Big news in our house.  The coop is done, and the chickens are in da' house!  I picked them up yesterday morning.  Friday night, I couldn't sleep because I was so flipping excited.  It was just like that Disneyland commercial.

I'll do a whole post on the coop, and the girls and stuff later, but here is a sneak preview of our new ladies:
Our nephew slept over Saturday night, and homeboy loves himself some chickens.  He was having a blast chasing them and was giving them gentlest of pets.

This week I wrote a post on American Profile Magazine about things that I REALLY want for Mother's Day, that are fabulous and cost zero money.

A few weeks ago, I was included in a City Hits Best of Frugal Living article featuring online resources helping people stay on a budget.

I also wrote an article for U.S. Kids Parents and Teacher magazine about helping your kids stay hydrated WITHOUT JUICE.

Meal plan time!  Reminder, I only plan dinners, because breakfast is always smoothies or eggs with something, and lunches are always leftovers.  We rarely eat dessert during the week, and our dinner drink of choice is water kefir soda.

Monday:: Grilled salmon and some sort of veggie.  We'll see what is on sale.

Tuesday:: Spaghetti and grilled asparagus.

Wednesday::  Tomato soup (canned from last year's garden), quesadillas, and grilled asparagus.

Thursday:: Dinner at my in-law's.

Friday:: Popcorn dinner.  Yes, seriously we eat popcorn for dinner.  It's popcorn, leftovers, cheese slices, fruit, and cut up veggies.  Everyone gets as much as they want, and no one leaves hungry.  I adore Fridays because it is the easiest night of the week for making everyone happy!

Saturday:: No clue.  I'm helping throw a shower for my dear friend Megan, and I'll probably be too wiped to cook that night.

Sunday:: My nephew's birthday party.  My plan is to fill up with cake and not cook dinner.  It's a good plan.  It's solid.

I am off tomorrow, and will be doing my grocery shopping then.  I haven't spent a dime yet, so no clue.  I know we're not buying milk this week because we let the last half gallon go bad.  We are not milk drinkers, and I was not interested in making yogurt last week.  We'll just go ahead and label that as laziness.

And you all?  What is on the menu for the week?
