Naming the vehicle

Does your car have a name?

We call our van Mrs Shockey. Because everyone is always getting shocked when they get out. I have no idea why. 

But we've determined her first name is Betsy. Because the transmission has been going bad for years and I always pat the dashboard and say, "C'mon Betsy! You can do it old girl!" Again, no idea why. Lol

I don't recall ever naming any of my other vehicles!

And I am back. With a monthly Menu. Boom!

I am gonna do a four week (monthly) plan all in one post. Just cuz I am tired of doing it weekly. Which is evidenced by the fact that I haven't done a plan for a while. haha

Even tho, I guess I am starting in the middle of the month! Oh well. :-p

For our breakfasts we generally have oats, eggs, cereal, or pancackes. Lunches we usually eat hot dogs (Yes I know that's terrible! We are a busy family, don't judge! haha), sandwiches, soup, salad, or leftovers. In our defense we snack on fruit and veggies throughout the day almost all the time...

Also, I don't do Sundays cuz my mom cooks us a big meal after church, and I don't do Saturday because we eat leftovers or just fix something quick and easy usually.
