Weekly (Plus Some) Menu Plan


Well, I didn't finish the menu plan through this last week, so I'll catch you up on what we've had for suppers at the end of the week:

Friday - Sundried Tomato & Spinach Sausage Skillet (made this up, was a little spicy for the kids), Salad
Saturday - Braised Balsamic Chicken, Roasted Green Beans, Salad (this was yum!)
Sunday - Chicken Italiano in the Crock Pot, Roasted Green Beans, Salad

Now on to the dinner plan for this week:

Monday (Labor Day) - Sausage/Pepper/Pineapple Kabobs, Salad
Tuesday - Marvelous Meatballs in the Crock Pot, Salad
Wednesday - Leftovers from the night before
Thursday - Bean-less Chili, Carrots Sticks and Guacamole
Friday - Rosemary Chicken, Broccoli
Saturday - Cashew Chicken
Sunday - Uh... Leftovers?

Packed lunch ideas for the kidinkydinks:
(preschool/fall work schedule starts this week!)
Cubed Chicken (cooked in homemade Italian dressing keeps it moist and flavorful)
Cheese Chunks
Veggie Straws (a compromise)
Fresh fruit: Bananas, Grapes, Cantaloupe, Apples

I like to pack them like homemade Lunchables, using these Ziploc containers.

And on those non-NON-nut days (due to preschool restrictions)... sub in some apples and almond butter, crispy nut trail mix, some homemade Larabars, or some carrots and walnut red pepper dip.

The adults get a mixture of all of the above, as well :)

And still going backwards: breakfasts.

Turkey Sausage (add onion) & Sweet Potato Hash Browns (pre-make these, then heat together the desired amount in a skillet with some butter or coconut oil at breakfast time)
Blueberry Crumble
Muffins
Eggs and Fruit
Smoothies

I doubt we will use all of these ideas, so we will save whatever ideas we don't use for the next week.

OK, enough details for ya? ;)  Seriously, I'd feel lost without this and would waste so much time thinking about it if I didn't write it down and get it out of my head.  Next week, I'll try to go in order.

Happy Labor Day weekend!
