After getting frustrated with my old meal planning notepad, I went searching for a new one and found this one on Amazon.  My other refrigerator notepad just didn’t give me enough space where I needed it.  Here is the notepad I found and so far LOVE….

Studio Oh! Meal Planner Notepad, Kiwi

 

For breakfast this week, we are having Homemade Pop-Tarts!  Pop-tarts are a guilty pleasure of mine (LOVE the brown sugar ones!) so I am hoping this no high fructose corn syrup/preservative free version lives up to my expectations!

Monday ~ Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Nachos

Tuesday ~ Mexican Chicken and Brown Rice Casserole with Salsa

Wednesday (Meat-less Meal) ~ Baked Potato Soup with Cornbread

Thursday ~ Leftover Buffet

We will be traveling this weekend so no cooking for me Thursday thru Sunday….

Can’t believe September is almost over!  How is the school year going so far for everyone?

Thankfully, last week went much better with my menu plan in place!  This week I will be out-of-town overnight for business so I needed some make ahead/easy meals so my family wouldn’t end up eating take-out and junk food for every meal!

 

For breakfast this week, I am going to make Egg Muffins.  I made these a few weeks ago and they were a big hit.

 

Monday ~ Bubble-Up Enchiladas with Guacamole

Tuesday ~ Honey Sesame Chicken with Brown Rice & Broccoli

Wednesday (Meat-less Meal) ~ Three Cheese Pasta Bake with a Garden Salad

Thursday ~ Leftover Buffet

Friday ~ Homemade Pizza (Homemade Pizza Saucesince I will be out-of-town I will make this ahead)

Saturday ~ Pigs n a Blanket with Baked Lays Chips & Salsa

Sunday ~ Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Icing (this is a repeat from last Sunday but it was so good and so easy we are doing it again!)

 

Looking for some yummy (somewhat healthy) desserts….anybody have any good recipes they can share?

I sure did blow it last week!  I got caught up in the holiday and back to school chaos and did not make a menu plan…and I sure did pay for it.  We ended up eating out 3 times last week and worst of all my kids had high sugar, highly processed food for breakfast every morning…ugh!

Not that I wasn’t convinced before but now more then ever I realize how important my weekly menu plan is.  So, I am back at it today….
A big lesson I learned last week is my normal go-to breakfast menu items do not work when you are trying to get the kids out of the door for school.  It takes my girls 20 minutes to eat a bowl of oatmeal!  This is why my girls ended up eating store bought mini blueberry muffins last week (YUCK!)  This week I am making blueberry muffins for a quick grab n’ go breakfast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday ~ Taco Salad withGuacamole Salad  & Healthy Taco Seasoning

Tuesday ~ Crockpot Southwest Chicken

Wednesday (Meat-less Meal) ~ Zucchini Lasagna with Garlic Bread (this was really YUMMY and the family is asking for it again!)

Thursday ~ Leftover Buffet

Friday ~ Breakfast for dinner (Pancakes, Bacon & Scrambled Eggs)

Saturday ~ Turkey Stuffed Green Peppers with Salad

Sunday ~ Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Icing

 

Ahhh! feel so much better now that my menu is done for the week!

How is back to school going for everyone??
