Menu Planning Monday - September 22nd

Autumn weather has certainly started here now, even though today is the last day of summer for this year. Hopefully this means so exciting new ideas for the menu that will have us going steady through are busy and hectic week! Cub scouts is in full swing, 2 open house recruitment events for Girl Scouts, and bell choir at church. I suppose somewhere in there is my college course work, studying for the NCLEX-PN exam and maybe taking care of my family too! Weeks like this is why I find menu planning so vital to my family, and my sanity!

Monday: Fend-For-Yourself

Tuesday: Chik'n pieces and rice, broccoli (carry over from last week)

Wednesday: Pasta night with homemade marinara sauce

Thursday: Breakfast for dinner

Friday: Perhaps dinner out? Homemade Chinese

Saturday: Homemade Pizzas, salad

Sunday: You're On Your Own (shopping day)

P.S. - I've been having issues with my scheduled posts over the last 2 weeks. I apologize if they suddenly come through all at once, once I have the problems sorted out!

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)

{this moment}

{this moment} - inspired by SouleMama 

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.
