Weekly Menu 9/20
I'm really looking forward to this week, we're hosting a pasta night at our house for our daughter's cross country team, well for the girls anyways. The boys meet at another house. But for one night, I get to prepare a delicious meal for 30 carb-hungry teenagers! Thank goodness I've recruited my mother to help out as this is definitely her area of expertise. I plan to share all the details with you later in the week, including a full recap of our menu and the fun s'mores bar I'm planning.
Other than that, it's just the same old routine. Last Monday was a lesson learned, I need to plan super simple meals so we're not eating after 8:00 on dance nights. I think I did much better this week so time will tell.
Anyone else looking forward to the official start of fall? While I do love summer, I truly enjoy the fall weather as well. I'm ready to start baking with apples and enjoying all the squashes we're seeing at the markets. Pumpkin will probably wait just a bit longer, more into October and November...there's plenty of time for that!
Anyhow, here's what I have planned for our menu this week:
Overnight baked apple oatmeal
French toast sticks
Roasted chicken salad wraps
DIY lunchables- meat, cheese, triscuits, fruit
Air-popped popcorn w/cheese, veggies and fruit
Pasta night- traditional spaghetti and chicken and noodles
One pot chili mac and cheese
Pork and apple slaw wrap
