Menu Plan for the Week: 12/11 – 12/17 | Fun with food

Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

How last week’s menu went:

I stuck to last week’s menu plan quite well.

The night we had the Bean and Rice Burritos, I had dinner all ready, but Mr. RSS had something to finish before coming to the table. When I was putting Gabe’s burrito on his rocket plate, I realized that it fit perfectly on the rocket. Then I started to have some fun while I waited.

So I did this:

Rocket Burrito

And then I worked on Ella’s plate:

Hula Girl Burrito

Since I still had more time, I went ahead and worked on the grown up plates. Little Anna just shared my burrito.

Silly Face Burritos

Eventually I stopped playing with everyone’s food, and we ate dinner.

Favorite meal from last week:

I’m going  with the Lentil Shepherd’s Pie. I was really wondering how the family would like this, since they love a different shepherd’s pie recipe I make with ground beef, but 4 out of 5 of us really liked it. One child only liked the mashed potato topping. I like that the recipe is both inexpensive and healthy.

This Week’s Menu Plan



  • My sweet sister brought dinner over – pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, cole slaw, green beans. Yum!



Thursday: Christmas Concert = easy dinner

  • Quick spaghetti and meat sauce: 1 box of spaghetti + 1 pound of cooked ground beef (from my freezer) + 2 jars of spaghetti sauce = happy tummies in a hurry
  • salad or green beans

      Hi Jessica! Thanks for trying to follow me! I actually don’t know how to do it myself! I do have a subscribe tab where you can get the rss feed or subscribe by email. though.

      Here’s a thought. Even though they look pretty much the same, I switched to a self-hosted blog through – and my old one (which is still hanging out there right now) is on I’m sure that is what is causing the problem, I just don’t know the best solution.

      I hope you get a good answer. Maybe I can learn something, too.
