Meal Plan Monday, week of August 11
Man, last week was rough! I was uninspired when I planned our meals, and all week I never did get excited about any of it. I'm glad to see last week over and done with--let's move on to this week!
Monday: Chicken & apples for the kids; Scott and I have something special to go to. You'll just have to wait until Tuesday to find out what!!
Tuesday: Fiery Fettucine (the sauce is made of puree'd roasted red peppers, cajun seasoning & cream, with summer sausage.) Not really my favorite, but Scott's been asking for it for a couple of weeks. Gotta throw Big Daddy a bone every now and then. Ooops, just gave you a big ol' hint on where we're going Monday.
Wednesday: Pioneer Woman's Chicken Sandwiches
Thursday: Teriyaki beef with rice, First Day of School cake for dessert. I don't normally post breakfast menus, but it's worth mentioning that we have a long-standing tradition of having muffins for breakfast on the first day of school. My mom's were always--always-- Everlasting Apple Muffins, which are known around our house as First Day of School Muffins. I like to make Morning Glory muffins and serve them with cream cheese mixed with crushed pineapple. It's just like carrot cake for breakfast, and it makes enough to freeze some for later. Theoretically.
Friday: out to eat after Tae Kwon Do
Saturday: individual pizzas or calzones, depending on your height.
Sunday: lasagna, with an extra to go in the freezer. How is it possible that I didn't realize until four days before school starts that it would be smart to have some dinners stashed in the freezer??!
