Menu Planning

Someone asked me to post a menu based on what I got with my budgeted money. Unfortunately, this week's breakfasts have been nothing but cereal. It's been hard to muster up the energy to make breakfast as I'm still sick. Generally, I do have a different type of breakfast.

B - Cereal, juice
L - at school (I do make Emily's lunch as she hates the school lunches)
D - Someone brought dinner for us

B - Cereal, juice
L - at school
D - Italian sausage soup, French bread

D - Homemade pizza (mushrooms and spinach on one; onions and red and green peppers on the other), tossed salad
