  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 9/24/2012

    While I appreciate having a menu plan, I still feel like I am struggling to get dinner on the table because I’m still getting used to our new schedule. As I was telling friends about it, I realized that the only day we don’t have sports is Thursday. No wonder I’ve been feeling a little crazed in the late afternoons and into the evenings! I’m hoping this is the week I start to really get the hang of our schedule, and find a “flow.” Here’s what I’ve got planned for dinners:

    Monday – Grilled pizza (Polenta for me since I’m still gluten-free), green salad, smoothies

    Tuesday – Korean-style short ribs, rice, some kind of veggie

    Wednesday – Turkey Sloppy Joes, rolls, broccoli slaw

    Thursday – Taco Bar

    Friday – Grilled sandwiches, sweet potato fries

    Saturday – Zucchini Lasagna

    Sunday – Dinner out
