Weekly Meal Plan September 3-8, 2012

Hi there! Hope you all had a great 3-day holiday weekend with family and friends! We had a fun weekend starting with the rib cook off on Saturday enjoying some really good BBQ dishes which inspired me to make some of my own family favorites.

In the middle of this week, my schedule has two school function committee meetings along with a PTC meeting. Crazy I know, but a working mom can still balance it all with a little bit of planning. I’ve teamed up with my crock pot to make some tasty meals for my family and planned for some leftovers to create another great meal on our Friday Family Favorites night.

I’ll share all these easy family recipes with you this week…Yum! Hope you find a few good ideas.

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

Breakfast options:  

Zucchini Bread, Banana Bread (recipes posting this week), Homemade Greek YogurtGreen Smoothie, cereal, Homemade Granola, toast, eggs, and/or fresh fruit

Lunch options:

Sandwiches, Pizza Bites, Tortilla Rollups (aka “Prairie Sushi”), protein shakes, salad, fresh cut veggies and/or fruit

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: BBQ Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Corn

Monday: Happy Labor Day! ~BBQ Ribs in the Oven, Crock Pot Pork and Beans (recipe posting this week) and Steamed Broccoli; Strawberry Cobbler for dessert. (more great Labor Day recipes)

Tuesday: Make-Ahead BBQ Sloppy Joes, Corn on the Cob, Homemade Potato Fries

Wednesday: School Swap Meet Fundraiser Committee Meeting~Slow Cooker Lasagna, Garlic Bread and Steamed Veggie Mix (cauliflower, broccoli and carrots)

Thursday: School Walk-a-thon Committee Meeting and PTC Night~Crock Pot Boneless Chuck Roast  (if pork roast is on sale this week, I may use as substitute) and salad. I’ll do several pounds so I can transform the leftovers into other dishes.
