  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 9/23/2013

    So I haven’t planned a menu for months … Summer vacation completely threw me off my game, especially with all of the late afternoon/early evening sports practices my boys had. I kept thinking that I would figure it out, but summer ended before that happened, and then school started. After about a month of school, I finally feel like I’ve settled into something of a new routine, and it’s been easier to get a homemade dinner on the table.

    … Which leads me to an actual menu plan for this week! We do have several social obligations, but I’m looking forward to making dinner on the other nights:

    Monday – Chicken Pasta Salad, Steamed Broccoli

    Tuesday – Salmon Furikake, Rice, some kind of vegetable

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Chicken salad sandwiches

    Friday – Pasta Bolognese, Salad, Garlic bread

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out
