Week 375 Menu: 2nd Week of School

Hi there!  I'm happy to be back menu planning.  My family is happy that I am back at menu planning.  My husband was gone all of last week for work and half of the week before that.  I have a hard time making and planning a whiole week of menus when I know my kids don't really care that much about dinner.  I did make good dinners several times, but we also just winged it quite a few nights too.

Last week my kids went back to school.  Getting back into the swing of things happens so fast.  Now we're full into a busy schedule.  I'm trying my best to simplify our activites and be better prepared.  

I actually started writing this blog post on Monday, and now it's Thursday and I'm finishing it so I can go grocery shopping.  

So, here's what we had this week:

Monday:  Labor Day BBQ - I made this favorite dip and scotcharoos for dessert

Tuesday:  navajo tacos

Wednesday:  french dip flatbread wraps (not my best idea to use flatbread for a wrap since the meat kept falling out, I better stick with rolls or pitas)

Thursday:  bistro chicken, mashed garden potatoes, and garden green beans

Friday:  homemade pizza

Saturday:  fried sausage, potatoes, peppers and onions

Sunday:  taco soup (my VERY picky 7 year old requested it)

I'm off to start a post for next week's menu so I can grocery shop more efficiently!  What have you been eating this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.

  1. I've been cooking at my sister-in-law's house for the past 3 weeks while we wait to close on our new house. It's always tricky cooking in someone else's space, and we've had pizza, macaroni and cheese, and cold cereal for plenty of meals! But I've also made: creamy chicken taquitos (a big hit with the adults!), chili dogs, chicken and rice soup, homemade rolls (my seven-year-old nephew was very excited about that!), breakfast burritos, pancakes, spaghetti, and "two-timing pasta" (penne bake with a mix of both Alfredo and marinara sauces). Before I move out, I'm planning on pork carnitas and cinnamon rolls. All things considered, I think we are eating pretty well!
