monday menu #11 for 2012

this week is an exact replica of last week's.  except minus exact because there's one item missing. 

here's what i have: 
  • mexican lasagna with perhaps some corn bread muffins on the side
  • pulled pork sandwiches with some sort of healthy vegetable.  i'd like coleslaw... but i always get complaints because no one likes it.  even i am just pretending to like it when i eat it.  maybe just a green salad. 
  • grilled marinated chicken with grilled veggies (like, but not limited to potatoes, asparagus, green beans...)
  • hamburger helper stroganoff without the box's helper, served with green peas.
  • swiss steak and homemade fresh bread
i am still finding it hard to budget my dinner-making-time between running 13-year-olds to and from martial arts and 5-year-olds to t-ball practices and games and nursing an 8-week-old.  i realize dinner is a priority, because we have to eat... but MAKING dinner isn't as much of a priority i guess. 
i'm up for any tips that those of you have used.  really.

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
