Menu Plan Monday - September 15th




Another week, another menu! If you are visiting here for the first time - welcome! My blog had been on hiatus the last year or so, and I'm slowing getting back into writing here. For my Monday menus, it is a mix of vegetarian and meat-eater options, and I will link recipes as possible. I hope you stick around!

The weather here has grown cold, and I honestly glad. While we didn't have an overly hot summer this year, I absolutely love autumn. And it's not for the pumpkin lattes (I really dislike pumpkin)! But all the apple items (like cider) I've been looking forward to since last year! Apple cider slushies are especially a lovely treat on the warmer autumn days.

So, the craziness of school year schedules starts this week. Cub scouts resumes on Tuesday, bell choir resumed practices last week, and the first of many open house events at school for the kids (since none of them are in the same building) is Thursday. And a camp out activity for Cub Scouts this weekend also, and bells is also playing Sunday morning! So, let's have a menu to sustain us through it all!

Monday - Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese, broccoli or salad
Tuesday - Hot dogs, veggie burgers and corn on the cob
Wednesday - Pasta with my favorite slow cooker marinara sauce
Thursday - Picnic in the Park Open House event at school
Friday - Quorn chik'n with rice pilaf
Saturday - Pizza
Sunday - Fend-for-Yourself (shopping day)

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. 

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Menu Planning Monday - August 25th




Wow, it's been a while since I've posted one of these, over a year!

So while I may not have been posting my menu, I have usually had one in mind while I purchase the weeks groceries, even if it's not always concrete give the schedules we had over the last year.

I have a feeling it will be nice to feel somewhat "normal" for a while...

Monday: BBQ Chicken, corn, chips, pasta salad
Tuesday: Tacos
Wednesday: Baked ziti, salad
Thursday: Chef Salad,  soft bread sticks
Friday: homemade "fast food" night
Saturday: Pizza night!
Sunday: fend-for-yourself (shopping day)

I'm hoping to also get ready for back to school the following week and get some baking done and frozen ahead of time. Snack items (cookies, granola bars, etc), breakfast items (muffins, breakfast burritos), etc are all things I'm hoping to get around to baking this week.
