Menu plan for the week of August 17

Did y'all know that school starts in 2 weeks?  What happened?  No, I'm not ready.  No, my kids are not ready.  There is a whole lot of unpreparedness going on around here right now.  That's ok.  We've got 2 weeks.  Fourteen days.  We can do this.

(We still won't be ready)

This week, I'm feeling like I want to get some quick and easy breakfast and snack options, as well as some quick suppers, made and stored in the freezer.  Unfortunately, the "starter" freezer is full again because I picked up 80 pounds of Zaycon Fresh ground beef (on sale now: beef hot dogs, kielbasa, pork filets, ribs, bacon, sausage, salmon, cod, chicken; use promo code BB1 to save $10 on a $75 or more purchase) on Friday.

The thing about my freezer, though, is that I always seem to be able to find a little more room in it.  It's kind of like Mary Poppins' bag.  But not really.

I will be testing its limits this week, that is for sure :)

Also unfortunately, because I've been so focused on planning ahead, I haven't really planned for this week.  Oh well.  Here's what on the menu this week.

These 2 secret ingredients make for the BEST EVER bakery-style cookies!
