Weekly Menu 8/30
The kids head back to school this week, I think they're slowly getting excited to be going back and to see their friends. I've been busy this weekend trying to make sure we've got items for lunches and everything else in place.
I quickly thew this menu plan together, I feel much better having a game plan. We'll be taking advantage of easy meals this week to help us ease back into the routine. It's also supposed to be hot and humid again, after enjoying a couple weeks with cooler temps, so we'll try to eliminate turning on the oven much.
Without further ado, here's our menu for the week:
Oatmeal (we usually just mix quick oats with a tiny bit of brown sugar and cinnamon, add some milk and microwave for one minute.)
*Since the girls are heading back to school, I always send them with a cold lunch rather than them eating a school lunch. I generally try to choose a couple fun dishes for them to take each week and then they can either have leftovers or a sandwich/wrap the other days. This helps keep my grocery bill down a little bit too, and makes planning easy so I'm not trying to come up with a new idea for every single day.
Pizza Lunchables (we'll most likely use pita bread triangles this week instead of homemade)
Ranch veggie pasta salad
Dinner w/my parents
Birthday dinner for our daughter- steak, baked potatoes, grilled veggies
Italian shredded beef sandwiches
Buffalo chicken salads
*all dinners are rounded out with a salad and/or veggies plus a fruit for the girls
