Big News

I apologize in advance for the lack of the shopping list. I had some crazy events happen the week I posted my month's menu. I was (dum dum da dum dum) laid off! Yes tragic I know, however I'm actually much happier. Granted this is said while I'm still on the payroll and have a severance to look forward to in addition to collecting unemployment. I truly believe this was a blessing in disguise and I pray that God will provide for my family. In the meantime I'm loving staying home with my lil monster and playing the happy homemaker. I believe it's want I was meant to do. So in light of the changes to our schedules my menu has and will be changed. And for the first time in my life I'm having to plan breakfasts and lunches for us all. (Before monster was fed at daycare and the hubby and I skipped or ate out)

As if there wasn't enough change in our lives, the hubby and I recently went to see a dietitian to figure out what and how much he should be eating, and of course thus me as well. So after our meeting I'll be working hard to pack quality lunches and snacks for my man.

Since I have little experience when it comes to breakfasts and lunches any ideas for either one of my men would be greatly appreciated!

Applesauce, Bran, and Oatmeal Muffins

I just have to rave about this recipe I tried today. I made a double batch so that I could freeze one batch. Super yummy w/o being bland. I was afraid they might be too heavy and "germy" tasting but these are great! I love the fact that they are sugar free (I used sugar free applesauce and agave necter instead of corn syrup). The bran and oats are a much better alternative to the flour based muffins for my diabetic hubby. You have got to try these, my lil monster just gobbled them up!

Please forgive my inadequate camera skills.
