I had already mapped out menus for the month, so I'm listing here what was planned, and noting changes that will likely occur...
Sunday, 26 - Pasta fagioli we had soup & sandwiches for lunch, and went out for a family birthday celebration
Monday, 27 -
We are out of school for two days with the possibility of SNOW. This is a big deal in a city that is better known for hurricanes than flurries! And this will likely bring some changes to the menu. We shall see...
Tuesday, 28 - Loaded Nachos (using leftover taco meat from Saturday)
Wednesday, 29 - Farfalle with sausage, tomatoes and cream
Thursday, 30 - Leftovers or frozen pizza
Friday, 31 - WE MADE IT! OUT TO EAT!!!!!

On another note... I love FUN mail. I especially love it when I get freebies in the mail. This week, we are snacking on some of those freebies!!!!
I'm a BzzAgent and got an exciting package to open. (My son couldn't wait to open it either.)
Inside, we found two full-size boxes of Fiber One Meal Bars. Now I've eaten Fiber One Bars in the past. Loved them. Felt like I was eating a healthy candy bar. However, these were advertised as "Meal Bars". I'm not usually into meal replacements so I'll admit I was skeptical. My son was the first to try a Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar...for breakfast. HE LOVED IT. This is a big deal, because my son is picky about breakfast - sometimes he wakes with an upset stomach and is pretty fussy about what he will eat. This was perfect for him!
Next, I tried the Strawberry Greek Yogurt bar. I love strawberries, and I love yogurt. And I usually eat both for breakfast, either with granola or in a smoothie. But I was running late, so I grabbed the Fiber One bar. It's 190 calories - not too bad - and I took a bite. Yummy! I could taste the strawberries, and the yogurt coating made me feel like I was having a treat. Great for rushed mornings or something on the go!
What do you do for a quick breakfast?
