Let’s Eat!

I am very excited to be participating in 3 Moms ~ 3 Kitchens ~ 31 Days this month. If you haven’t heard, during the month of May, two of my friends and I will be posting our menu plans, shopping lists, grocery receipts, meals, and even recipes.

I made a big weekly shopping trip last night and here are my groceries.

I plan on writing a detailed post this weekend regarding this shopping trip. My total was $127. It should last about a week, except for an extra milk run.

This morning I woke up with a headache so everyone was on their own for breakfast. The kids ate leftover whole wheat pancakes and cereal.

I had this, and it was delicious.

For lunch we had leftover pasta and assorted fruit and carrots.

This isn’t all we had, the kids were hungry and wanted their plates.

We had a change of plans for dinner. Tonight was supposed to be chicken tetrazzini, but my husband and I decided to go to Five Guys for a budget planning session, so the kids ate “pink pasta.”

I forgot that tomorrow night we are taking a field trip and dinner is provided. So my menu is now two days behind. At first I wanted to cancel the field trip, but my husband reminded me that it is a free meal, so we are going!

Check back this weekend for more meals, the recipe for “pink pasta” and my shopping trip in detail. Don’t forget to stop my Mary’s blog for more Show and Tell.

Don’t forget to visit Kate and Joy to see what meals they are having this week.


  1. Hey, I recognize some of those plates!

  2. Looks like you are in for lots of fun 🙂

  3. I wish we could do meals with no meat. I am hypoglycemic, so I have to have protein several times a day.

    The best I can do is watch the meat sales and try not to make more than we will eat for our meal and leftovers.

  4. I think we eat too much!

  5. What a neat challenge! We are on a tighter budget now so I am doing more menus also.
    Be blessed!

  6. I’m looking forward to following you this month. I used to do my shopping at the commissary early in our marriage. Now we’re civilians so I don’t have that opportunity.

  7. Wow, that looks like it is going to be a fun challenge. BTW, I love to go on field trips with free meals. : )

  8. Ohhh this looks like fun. You can tell I have four HUNGRY boys. lol I can’t wait to read up on how it goes. [0=

  9. Such organization! At this point in our lives, I usually make a LOT of whatever I am making, then freeze it in those 1-cup Ziplock containers. Then….on the run (with teens), we can grab what we want and pop it into the microwave. My DH has lost 20 pounds doing this, as the food isn’t sitting in large dishes, begging him to take a second helping. It’s all “measured out”. A small serving of…say…Taco Soup and an orange makes for a healthy, low-cal dinner. (I’ve always said it’s not WHAT you eat, it’s HOW MUCH you eat).

    This works well for us.
    Years ago, I got together with 4 other friends once a month. We each made a TON of one thing (like stew or something), bagged it up into family-sized meals, and then TRADED with each other. I got a whole month’s variety and didni’t have to cook much. However, my kids hated this idea. They didn’t like other people’s foods. LOL

  10. Oh That looks like a lot of fun. I had strawberries for breakfast too, but my pasta for lunch was red!
    Because of Jesus, bobbie

  11. Your shopping trip looks great. I can’t wait to hear the details.

    I’mm so curious, what is pink pasta? It looks really good.

  12. The pictures of your food all looks so appetizing. And your little girl is adorable.
