* To save money we create Restaurant Nights. For Sonic Night, we serve a couple of the kids favorite menu items. Instead of chairs the children (younger ones at least as the teens are too cool for that) will drive up in "cars", boxes they decorated themselves as cars.

I have included meal ideas for six days. For the seventh day feel free to serve any leftovers (we call it buffet dinner) or your family's favorite meal. I didn't use names of the days as everyone's schedule differs. For example, I do my grocery shopping on Wednesday afternoons so my meal plan usually begin with that day as I have a stocked refrigerator and pantry then. I will try to post meal and snack ideas for a week the same day (Sunday night) so that you may plan your shopping no matter what day you do it.
