Week 36 Meal Plan

This week's plan is fairly simple, but we do have a holiday this week to look forward to! I like to do something a little special on holidays, and I also like to include a more heavy dessert than usual. Friday is also our family movie night in which we watch a movie related to what we learned in history or science. I prepare finger foods that can be enjoyed while watching the movie (I spread a blanket on the floor for the kid's and do things "picnic style"). This week's movie is Joseph, King of Dreams because we'll be learning about Joseph in Egypt this coming week.

You might be a bit shocked to see that I give my children sweets for their afternoon snack. I do this for a few reasons. First, I do not like giving my children sweets after dinner because it gives them a sugar high right before bed. Second, it's a little boost of energy before I send them off to their afternoon extracurricular activities (gymnastics, dance, etc.). I have a few rules about snack time (the sweet snack is what is planned but sometimes they don't always get it) that I'll explain in a future post.
