Weekly Family Menu: August 14-20, 2011

Back To School Week

  I really can’t believe summer vacation is almost over. We’ve officially hit the Back to School shopping frenzy.  Luckily, I prepared myself for a less stressful back to school week by getting a head start on school shopping a bit during the summer.

Now, it’s time to think about a new menu for the week. I created a cooking plan of frugal and kid friendly recipes for school lunches and as always have a simple casual dinner plan that I put together based on items that were on sale at the grocery store. Here’s what’s on the menu for the week:

  Weekly Family Menu

Cinnamon Rolls, Berry Banana Fruit smoothies, Honey Granola Crunch, Tex-Mex Breakfast Burritos, Toasty Breakfast Pockets, Pancakes or Waffles

Refer to my Back to School Cooking Series; Create a Cooking Plan for lunch ideas.

Taco Grande, Kid-Pleasin’ Lasagna*, Chicken Riddle Soup* (leftovers can also be used for lunch), Sloppy Joe’s Pocket Sandwiches, Cashew Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry, Pepperoni Pizzadillas

*To save time during the week, I’ve pre-made the Chicken Riddle Soup and Kid-Pleasin’ Lasagna ahead of time. I’m preparing the recipes now and will post them later and throughout the week.

What’s on Your Family Menu?
