Meal Plan and Grocery List for Jan 9 through Jan 16

I'm trying something new this week. There is a local organic grocery delivery service that I'm using. It's well below 0 here and towing two babies to the grocery store in this kind of weather is just not what I'm in to... Also, it looks like it's going to cost less in the end!! 

My Meal Plan:

Breakfasts:
eggs
fruit
smoothies
oatmeal


Lunches:
leftovers and usually similar to what we eat for breakfasts. Whatever we feel like :) 

Dinners:
Tacos with ground turkey and avocado
Meatloaf with salad
Chicken Noodle Soup
Egg salad sandwiches on homemade bread with homemade mayo (Jack's request!)
Turkey blt sandwiches on homemade bread
Salad
leftovers


Snacks/baked goods/desserts/stuff:
applesauce
pasta sauce
tortillas 
sandwich bread
cinnamon swirl bread for french toast
banana bread
zucchini bread
I keep meaning to make no bake cookies, so I'm going to put them on the list again... Who knows if I will have time or want to make them this week with all of this produce!

Sorry for the choppy list this week, we have a lot of leftover groceries from last week and we have been having a ton of extra food after every meal which leaves us with a lot more leftovers and a lot less meals. I think I'm making 3 or 4 meals a week and having leftovers 3 or 4 days! I will be sharing my baking recipes for this week too!
