So I didn't realize there were so many people participating in this menu planning fun over at OrgJunkie's Happy little blog home. If I had I would have done this hours ago. Oh well. It is my first time and Maybe I'll do better Next week.
For those that come check it out, here's a little summary. I don't have any kids yet, and my husband is in the military and has no where's near a set shift sooo...we live a crazy life. Lunches are generally out of the freezer and leftovers. Breakfast is cereal and or fruit and yogurt. Not so much planning involved there yet. But here is my first attempt at a menu plan. =D

A military wife is mostly girl. But there are times, such as when her husband is away and she is mowing the lawn or fixing a youngster's bike, that she begins to suspect she is also boy. She usually comes in three sizes: petite, plump and pregnant. During the early years of her marriage it is often hard to determine which size is her normal one. She has babies all over the world and measures time in terms of places as other women do in years.
I'm a 23 year old wife and mom trying to find a place in the world. I'm my husband's mistress since he's married to the army. I love to read, cook, and eat, not necessarily in that order. I live, I laugh, I cry, and sometimes I even get it right.
