What's Going On + Menu Plan Monday: Week of Sept 8, 2014

I'm still waiting for our fall schedule to be finalized, and in the meantime, I've been thinking hard about the way we eat (I've got a book review coming that will show you why). I try to get a lot done while the kids are in school, but lately I've also been thinking about make-ahead and easy/fast meals. Both would make my life easier.

I've also been feeling a bit overwhelmed by all that's going on. My life seems to go in the same cycle - first I get super busy and that stresses me out, so then I diligently cut back and create breathing room, which makes me feel like I can take on more, so then I get busy again, and then overwhelmed ... and so on. It's a natural cycle, but I don't really love it. I'd really like to find a happy medium that I can live in most of the time, where I've got a lot going on but it feels manageable. Unfortunately, I'm not there yet!

In the meantime, here's what I've got planned for dinners this week:

Monday - Rice, Salmon Furikake, Sauteed Broccoli, Miso Eggplant

Tuesday - Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Sandwiches, Broccoli Slaw, Edamame

Wednesday - Shrimp, Potato & Spinach Frittata, Garlic Bread, Salad

Thursday - Farfalle Smoked Salmon Salad

Friday - Cheesy Mashed White Beans With Kale, Parmesan, and a Fried Egg

Saturday - Chicken Enchiladas, Salad, Guacamole

Sunday - Leftovers

Even though it's still quite hot, I'd really like to get some baking done: chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, and maybe one or two other things.
