It’s Back to School time again, and time for me to get back into my routines. The biggest one I have missed is my Menu Planning. I’m tired of pulling something frozen out of the freezer and thawing it 30 minutes before I want to eat. I have drawn up a monthly game plan and have decided to add themed days. ..Crock Pot Sunday, Meatless Friday (because I can’t do it on Monday like the rest of the world lest I make something that would trigger DH’s stomach issues), Pasta Wednesday, Pizza Night, and Fish Thursday. I also would like to send the kids off to school with a warm breakfast daily, so will be researching some recipes for that to keep some variety. And I’m sorely in need of lunch inspiration. We’ll see what I can come up with for that. Here’s what I‘ve Planned for this week.
Dinner: Spaghetti, Italian Sausage, and Salad
Lunch: English Muffin Pizzas, fruit
Dinner: Mediterranean Quinoa Skillet derived from this recipe from the $5 Dollar Dinner Mom ( for my meatless meal of the week)
Lunch: Peanut butter and Jelly, fruit or veggie sticks
Dinner: Steak with all the trimmings…baked potatoes, Salad,
Lunch :Quesidillas, veggies
Lunch:Salami Sandwiches, fruit or veggie stix
Dinner: Whatever my mom makes…we’ll be going down home for the weekend.
Lunch: Bug’s Birthday Party.
Pulled Pork Sandwiches, coleslaw, rolls
Hot Dogs, Buns
Chips and pretzels
Grandma Eva’s Baked Beans
Cake & Ice Cream
Dinner: Green beans & Potatoes & Lunch leftovers
Next week I’ll try to plan a Breakfast schedule to and practice that with dh being off to school again.
