Naomi's Menu Plan

This week Naomi is my kitchen helper and she helped plan the menu. I use the term 'help' loosely here. There is a big difference between 4 and 5 year old girls!

I reviewed dates in the pantry earlier this week and wanted incorporated older things into our menu so I laid out all the things I wanted to use up including carrots, onions, and a turkey from the freezer. It turned out to be a great visual for Naomi as we plotted out how to use everything on the table. True to her personality, she had to move each item into a new pile as we decided how to use it.

Here's what we came up with:

Sunday - Stir Fry & fried rice (using onions, carrots, expired stir fry seasoning and box rice mix)
Monday - Hamburger Helper (using March expiration mix)
Tuesday - Macaroni & Cheese pie (using onions) (Naomi's choice)
Wednesday - Dinner at church
Thursday - Turkey Pot Pie (Mom won't be home for dinner, easy freezer meal for Dad)
Friday - Cheesy Chicken Casserole (using carrots & freezer broccoli)
Saturday - Turkey

Sunday - Ham Sandwiches & Broccoli Soup (expired mix & freezer broccoli)
Monday - Waffles & Applesauce (Naomi's Choice)
Tuesday - Bagels & Pears
Wednesday - Nachos & fruit
Thursday - Box Mac'n'Cheese & apple slices
Friday - Grilled Cheese
Saturday - Leftoovers
