Menu Monday

We eat entirely too often around our home... especially at the beginning of the month when there are groceries! I know it's because we are home during the day, and the opportunities for grazing and snacking are abundant. In order to save on groceries and help us out with self control, my kitchen is going to be officially closed unless it is a mealtime or snack time.

Therefore, I planned my menu in a little more detail this week. We will see how it goes... I am just as bad as the kids! Maybe I should put some caution tape across the walkway into my kitchen or something... just kidding! Self control is a good thing.

Lentil pizza?
Lentil pizza?
I can't imagine that...
Is it really good?
I would like to try Sarah's granola bars recipe. I suppose it's good, as she is a top dawg cook. ;-)

But I agree with Heather Brandon - Lentil Pizza? Lentil Pizza?
