Back To School Weekly Meal Plan August 12-18, 2012

Happy Monday Everyone! We had a pretty busy family weekend and I didn’t get to start on our weekly meal plan until early this morning.

We got off to an early start to the weekend on Saturday and headed to Reno, Nevada for the last weekend of Hot August Nights andthe huge swap meet at the convention center. Later we headed to Virginia Street to check out the display of classic cars. Then on Sunday, we spent the early afternoon doing some last minute school shopping and I was able to squeeze in my weekly grocery shopping for the next two weeks.

This week, with school starting up, it’s time to scramble up meals that are quick and easy. A back to school cooking plan really helps your sanity and is crucial for our family to keep us on schedule throughout the school year.

My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:

Suppers Your Family Will Love

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu.  I enjoy menu planning because of  the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to  have more free time to focus on my family and home. For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.

Dinner (recipes will post throughout the week)

Sunday: Hamburgers, Salad

Monday: Breakfast for Dinner! Homemade Hashbrown Quiche, Applesauce Muffins and Breakfast Burritos. (I’m making extras for the freezer to pull out later in the week.)

Tuesday: Easy Sliders and Herbed Potato Fries

Wednesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs, Garden Salad

Thursday: Back to School Night – Turkey Sub Sandwiches, Veggie Platter
