Weekly Menu 3/27-4/2

Okay...I'm already behind on this! Here is the weekly menu this week. I plan on expanding this to include recipes and pictures of some of our meals. Right now, I'm just trying to get it started. In the future, I plan on posting this every Tuesday as that is my normal grocery shopping day. My son's long spring break is currently interfering with my normal grocery shopping time (he is on year round school and off for 3 weeks). This week the budget was pretty tight for groceries so there isn't a lot of interesting things, just what I was able to get for a decent price.

3/27-Cheeseburger Pie (new recipe for us, hubby and I liked it, kiddos not so much but they are picky)
3/28-Out with the in-laws for dinner to Italian restaurant
3/29-Ground chicken soft tacos
3/30-Rotisserie Chicken Salad
3/31-Grilled burgers, oven-baked fries
4/1-Sunday is almost always pizza night (we order in or make our own)
4/2-Crazy easy lasagna

New Ideas

So after much thought, I have decided I will be focusing this blog on a few more specialized topics. I know many of you struggle with dinner ideas and so I will try to post my weekly dinner plans every Tuesday as this is my usual grocery day. For the items that are not obvious on how to make, I will attempt to post recipes and pictures as well as I make them. I am attempting to try at least one new recipe a week but I have very picky children so I will let you know if it is a good one for picky kids!

I also plan on trying to do at least one fun kid activity a week and plan on posting pictures of the finished product or possibly even some video about each project.

Thirdly, I plan on doing homemade gifts for various occasions and different types of people. I am looking forward to this and hoping I can keep up with it all!

Blog changes and ideas

I'm still around...I have just been brainstorming niche ideas and ways to either make a new mom blog or to make this one better. I think I will try to focus on a couple of niche areas instead of just random thoughts that come my way. What do you think? Anything you are interested in? I know my goal is definitely to be adding more pictures and a Pin it button for Pinterest!
