this week's menu & a scrumptious spontaneous smoothie

first of all, can i just take a minute to thank God for whoever invented the Magic Bullet? it is so awesome and i use it practically every day. thank You Lord.

i whipped this healthy smoothie up for my kids the other day using only what i had on hand (in the Magic Bullet) and they LOVED it. it literally took me less than 5 minutes. you could make this in your own blender of choice, of course.

1 frozen organic banana, thawed and sliced
1 strawberry flavored Yo Squeezer organic yogurt
4 ice cubes
handful of Annie's Bunny Grahams
1 cup organic orange juice
1 cup almond milk

combine ingredients in Magic Bullet cup, and blend for 30 seconds or until the ice is sufficiently crushed. serve with bendy straws and get a zillion Best Mom points!

we have a lot of left over brisket this week! i had some fun searching for "leftover brisket recipes" and found some great ones.

here are the dinners on our menu this week with links to recipes:

loaded baked potatoes 
veggie & chicken foil packs
breakfast for dinner

happy meal planning and dinner time!
