Menu Plan Monday, May 13th to 19th


It's that time of the week again, Menu Plan Monday.  I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day.  My day was filled with homemade cards and goodies from my kids.  I love the homemade cards, they are worth so much more to me than a store bought card.
This past week has been a pretty rough week around here as we have been passing a virus bug around the house, so a few of our meals got skipped.  I ended up making some homemade chicken noodle soup because we all know that you can't get better unless you eat chicken noodle soup.  I am trying to incorporate more real food into our diet, if you look at some of my menu items you may wonder how I can make that statement but we are working on it.  It's hard to break old habits and change your eating practices all at once so we are doing baby steps around here.  To make our homemade chicken noodle soup I turned to the Chicken Noodle Soup recipe from 100 Days of Real FoodFor those of you who know I don't like to follow instructions I will have you know that I followed the recipe 100% for the soup.  I started off on Saturday night by cooking the chicken in the crockpot, and then making the stock overnight in the crockpot.  We didn't eat the chicken on Saturday night so I just pulled it off the bone and put it in the fridge for use later.  Then on Sunday I made the chicken noodle soup adding in half of the cooked chicken and then I am using the rest of the chicken for our chicken pot pie this week.  I will also be using the extra chicken stock in that recipe as well.  It was a super easy to follow recipe and the whole family loved it.

This will be another busy week followed by the Little Man's 10th birthday party this Sunday.  We will be having to eat out again a couple of times this week, even though I am not too happy about it.
