Menu Plan Monday - September 16, 2013

We're wrapping up our ice cream unit with a fun final project - developing our own recipes, flavors, brands, and packaging!  I can't wait to see what the kids come up with.

In the meantime, tonight is our only at-home night this week.  Church events start ramping back up this week, and the sports seasons are nowhere near over.  Life promises to stay busy, so I'm planning simple meals that will reheat well until everyone's able to eat them.

Here's the plan:

- Simple soaked pancakes
- scrambled eggs, juice, bananas

Cinnamon Almond Granola and fruit

Applesauce Muffins


- Hamburgers, carrot sticks, pears, Grilled Jalapeno Poppers chips
- Foil babies - recipe coming soon!

Betsy's Baked Mac 'n' Cheese with ham and carrot sticks
- Baked Chicken & Brown Rice Casserole
- Pancakes-for-dinner, scrambled eggs, bacon

- Grilled pizza, salad - didn't have this last week, trying it again!
- Leftovers

We've been ice-creaming it so much that we haven't done any baking, bu we might try out these Chewy Coconut Bars this week.  I can't get Lumpy's Almond Joy Ice Cream out of my mind, and I love the possibilities that the coconut offers in these bars!

What are you cooking this week?

  1. I am in the same place - I need simple meals, as I feel like we are constantly on the run for the next month. Matthew's wedding is October 5th, and I seem to be completely unready. Shopping for a belt to wear with my dress is on tap for tonight, I am hoping JC Penneys has something, since it is close to my house, and I have a 15% off coupon for anything in the store. Good luck getting through your busy week!

    1. Hope you were able to find what you're looking for! Coupons are great. We should exchange easy recipes - let me know if you find anything wonderful. Until soccer and baseball seasons are over, we're going to be constantly on the go.
