Menu for the Week

This week I dip my toes into the work-out-of-the-home mom life. I'll be teaching ballet camps from 9 to 3 every day. This may seem like a short work day to those of you who really work outside the home, but it's pretty much got me in a panic! So, to alleviate some of the (unnecessary) stress I am making this week's meals EASY. Or as my daughter says "Easy cheesy Japanesey." (Don't ask me, I think it came from her kindergarten teacher.)
Monday: I'll be off teaching an ABC's of Baby Care class at the local pregnancy resource center. The hubby is going to make his gourmet meal of macaroni cheese and hotdogs. He and the kiddos will be very happy. I may throw out a can of green beans just to make myself feel better.
Tuesday: Spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread
Wednesday: Fried egg sandwiches- a favorite around here. I make them like grilled cheese only I fry an egg first and put it in with the cheese when I grill the sandwich. Sometimes I add a piece or two of sandwich meat as well. We'll probably have these sandwiches with some raw veggies and ranch dressing.
Thursday: Baked chicken, green beans, and pasta salad
Friday: Frozen pizzas (Congratulations, you made it through a week of ballet camps!)
Saturday: This yummy-looking recipe I found over at Finding Joy in My Kitchen--Spinach Squares
Linked with Motivate Me MondayMakes My Monday and Menu Plan Monday.
