Week 376 Menu: In the swing of things

Hi everyone!  We're starting our third week of school today.  Actually, it's our first full week of school, with 5 days in a row.  We're starting to get into the swing of things and into a good groove.  My littlest started preschool last week and is loving it.  It's good to have a little more structure in our days with just him and me at home.

I'm trying to get more things done early in the day, so I can make lego creations with this guy.  He thinks I'm pretty cool when I can make something out of our giant mess of legos.  It's a good test in patience for me to try to find all the pieces from lego sets that we bought years ago.

Anyway...this week we're full into our regular schedule of school, sports, church activities, teaching piano lessons, etc.  Have I told you how much I LOVE early morning piano lessons?  All three of my kids have their lessons before school and it is my favorite thing.  And I love middle school sports since it's right after school.  And I LOVE being able to carpool.  

And one more thing that I love...when I actually menu plan.  I have been not as regular at menu planning the last few months and my family has noticed.  Things go a lot better when I make and plan and shop for dinner every night, or at least 5 nights a week.  So, here's our plan for this week:

Monday:  crockpot taco soup

Wednesday:  leftovers

Thursday:  homemade pizza

Friday:  try grilled chipotle maple chicken, simple orzo pilaf, garden salad

Saturday:  Waikiki meatballs, rice/quinoa, stirfry veggies

Sunday:  crockpot Italian chicken alfredo with noodles, one hour breadsticks, veggies

How about you?  What you making for dinner this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do!  Happy Monday!
