Menu Plan Monday

I'm still planning my menus for the week, just haven't posted in awhile. I had the best shopping at Dillons today. My total before coupons and Kroger card was $90.57, after coupons it was $41.28! I was sooooo excited! I got 4 tubes of toothpaste and 2 toothbrushes absolutely free after coupons. Then I went to Aldi and spent the most I've ever spent there, around $70. Whatever...Here's what we're eating this week-

Monday-spaghetti, salad, garlic bread
Tuesday-Homemade Gourmet Asian pork loin, veggies and rice. Unless we get an invite to go to the Zoo, then it will most likely be McDonalds. Zoo night with friends trumps eating at home :)
Wednesday-Brisket tacos, chips and homemade gourmet maria's salsa, black beans and rice
Thursday-Kevin's grandma turns 96 on Thursday. I don't know what the plans are, but I didn't plan on a meal at home this night.
Friday-breakfast for supper-ham, egg, and cheese casserole, fruit smoothies

Breakfasts-cereal, yogurt, waffles, muffins, smoothies, repeat...

Lunches-leftovers, sandwiches, chef salad, pizza rolls, etc...

Presley is eating more regular food, and is NOT liking baby food anymore. Feeding her is not very fun. She loves yogurt, dry cereal, cheese, blueberries, and bananas. She doesn't like veggies, which she used to love. I can barely get her to eat half a jar a day, where as a few weeks ago, she'd eat 2 jars of veggies, no problem. Any hints on how to get her to eat more veggies?

Try yams/sweet potatoes right out of the can. Moriah loves them, and they have the same vitamins as green vegetables.

Hey Michelle!

Your menu plan looks scrumptious! I love the breakfast for supper night!! In fact, I am currently working on the launch of a new Chiquita™ Smoothies product! I thought it might be something you'd be interested for the supper smoothies. They’re all-natural, full of vitamin C, easy to make and totally refreshing! Also, try sneaking some vegetables into any smoothie you make, sometimes you can't even taste a difference!!

If you head over to, you can also enter to WIN a trip for a family of four on Air Jamaica to stay at an all-inclusive Beaches Resort! Some lucky weekly winners will receive prize packs including an Oster® Fusion Reversing Motor Blender, a Blend-N-Go™ Cup, and a one year supply of Chiquita™ Smoothies! Be sure to check it all out! Hope you can make it to the zoo!

Emilia doesn't want to eat baby food either. She only wants to feed herself. I've been using one of those mesh feeders and putting fresh fruits and vegetables in it, which works well, but I'm worried that she's eating way too much bread and cereal (because that's what's easy for her to feed herself).

Kati, my 15month old, will eat corn with just a little butter and salt, loves the peas and carrots out of dillons fried rice, and will eat any veggie i give her from my plate. We even took her to Ghengis Grill the other day and she LOVED her stir fry (I just added a little of their honey soy, and she ate carrots, broccoli, bamboo shoots, baby corn, potatoes, and pineapple) Just be creative and have her eat stuff seasoned the way you like it. Bland food isn't fun at any age.
