It's back to school week! I'm kind of excited about that. I'm also realistic. I know that the school year is a whole different kind of busy. It will be so good to get back into a more rigid routine, but it'll be kind of a bummer to have to wake up at a certain time every day. Mixed feelings. Bet you didn't see that one coming.
Anyway, we're going to eat this week, thank goodness. Much better than last week when we didn't. One of the kids got braces, so his teeth hurt, and another of the kids (oh, wait, it was the same one) started football practice...at 6 p.m. every night, and the other adult was out of town (New York this time--nice change from going to Mexico all the time, amIright?), which all added up to not a whole lot of meals actually being made. MC subsisted on chocolate pudding and ramen noodles last week, and the rest of us didn't do a whole lot better, even though we could chew.
Right. So. This week will be better. I hope.
Here's what's on the menu:
--Grilled chicken (make extra for a later meal), salad, carrots
--Bacon wrapped meatloaves (from the freezer), mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, salad
--Slow cooker easy chicken pot pie, biscuits, applesauce
--Easy crockpot Mongolian beef (double, freeze), rice, mixed vegetables
--Hot dogs/brats, buns, green stuff, grilled broccoli
--Chicken pesto calzones (use grilled chicken from Monday), broccoli/cauliflower/carrots
--Ham, au gratin potatoes, corn, jello
Next Monday supper:
--Spaghetti, green beans
--Friendship bread (yes! my yeasties have awoken from their long summer's nap! And yes, I will save you a starter, Chip)
