Meal Plan Monday

Hi Everyone!  Can't believe it is Monday again already!  Here are the meals we have planned (some we have already had) for this week:

Chili-I just kinda through things together but we did find a chili seasoning mix recipe we really like! 
Chili Seasoning Mix

Egg Rolls (homemade)
Fried Rice-I don't know where I got this recipe but we really like it. 

Fried Rice
2 cups enriched white rice
4 cups water
⅔ cup chopped baby carrots
½ cup frozen green peas
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs
soy sauce to taste
sesame oil, to taste

1. In a saucepan, combine rice and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

2. In a small saucepan, boil carrots in water about 3 to 5 minutes. Drop peas into boiling water, and drain.

3. Heat large frying pan over high heat. Pour in oil, then stir in carrots and peas; cook about 30 seconds. Crack in eggs, stirring quickly to scramble eggs with vegetables. Stir in cooked rice. Shake in soy sauce, and toss rice to coat. Drizzle with sesame oil, and toss again.

Friday: Grocery Night/Family Night Out

Today we got some things checked off of our to do list that had been on it for awhile.  We got the oil changed in our truck and the boys got their wild and crazy heads of hair cut.   Jadon was so good the lady at Great Clips told him she would cut his hair anytime. 

Here are two happy boys with fresh hair cuts!
