Menu Strategy: March 1-7, 2011

I realize we've already started with today, but I think I'll enjoy plotting this out a week at a time.  I'm going to include a few comments showing why I'm choosing certain meals or snacks or why we're going out to eat.  We normally don't go out to eat that often, this month has just been a huge anomaly since everyone has been sick and we've been too exhausted to cook by the end of the day.

           Breakfast: cereal bars, fruit, and milk (this is the kids preference)
           Snack: fresh fruit
           Lunch: Bento-turkey cocktail sausages, apples, pretzels, oatmeal raisin cookie.
