Menu Plan for Monday May 23

My brain is totally tapped out. I've been struggling since we returned home from a long weekend vacation to get back into the menu planning, heck even cooking, groove. I've even had the 4:00 frantic rush to throw something together for dinner. Yikes, that wasn't fun...or that great of a dinner.

This past weekend, we allowed ourselves a little break and ate some not-so-healthy but easy food like grilled hot dogs, chicken nuggets, and boxed mac and cheese. I'm going to try to force myself back into the habit of being on the ball, hopefully to save my family from another week of that crap.

I've been really struggling with weekday lunches for my son and I for a few months, so I'm hoping that planning the lunches will save me from doing the drive-thru thing. Anyone have any tried and true easy lunch ideas for a 3 year old?
