Slice of Life Day Eleven: A Teacher Needs to Eat.

Oh Friends.  We made it to spring break. 
Last week?  Crazy. 

We could have eaten out every day. 

But we've been playing with this app:

And that's been helping us from mindlessly grabbing food on the run.  (I'll write about this app another day.)

I've always been a meal planner, but as the kids have schedules too, dinner time at our house can get dicey. 

So here's what we ate this past week as we were running everywhere:
(Photos from iclipart, because I'm not a food photographer most days.)

You'll also notice there are choices at each day.  Our food allergy groove includes offering choices at every meal, so there is something for everyone. 

Monday:  Homemade Lunchables. 
Instead of buying them, we by turkey sausage sticks, cheese, a good snack cracker, fruit, chips, and a sweet treat. 
We could fancy it up and call it a cheese board.  Some day we will.  Today is not that day. 
We place it all on the counter, and some paper plates.  Please put some food on your plate and enjoy.

Tuesday: Baked Potatoes.
We put out cheese, butter, steamed veggies, chicken, etc.  to offer some choices there. 
And because speed is the theme, we just cook the potatoes in the microwave. 

Wednesday:  Church Dinner!
Taco Buffet.  Even if you don't attend church on a regular basis, there is something to be said for eating with a church community. 

Thursday:  Pasta.
Fast.  Easy. 
We put choices out again.  Sauces, meatballs, bread, salad.  Yum!

Friday:  Everybody Out!
Because you have to relax sometimes. 
I went out with Mamas.  The boys got pizza. 

How do you feed your family when it's crazy?



  1. A crazy week that led to less formal meals. I enjoyed seeing how you juggled being on break but getting all to also eat. And your clipart photos added lots so glad you included them.

  2. This is about how we eat during those busy weeks, too. Another favorite to add to the list: breakfast for dinner! We love having scrambled eggs, pancakes (usually we have frozen leftovers in the freezer), and sausage.
