Menu Planning Monday

Last week was a success. My son found a job on campus and he was able to come home because he doesn't start for a couple of weeks. I'm not sure how my family followed my menu and I decided not to ask. They all survived somehow.

School starts this week and I may start planning some breakfasts as well. I'm not making long term promises. I know if I try to do too much then I can get stopped in my tracks. I've never been one to prepare breakfast for my family on a daily basis. When you have 5 kids in 4 different schools that all start at different times, then it's usually easier for them to fend for themselves. At least that's what I tell myself. Plus, with my son going away to college, my best eater who is willing to try new things will not be here. So, I may try a few this week and see how it goes. I will keep you posted.

Monday: Chicken Caesar Wraps
Tuesday: Back to school dinner
Wednesday: 5 minute southwest layered salad
Thursday: White chili with ground turkey (making in the crock pot)
Friday: BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs
Saturday: Date night
Sunday: Pasta Bar

Breakfast ideas
Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes
Egg Bake
Scrambled eggs with red potatoes

Yes. Letting them fend for themselves probably is the best strategy!
