Menu for the week of September 6th

Menu for the week of 9/6

This week we are trying to use up what we have in the house before payday on Friday! Hopefully I can hit the farmers market on Thursday morning to get some fresh produce cheap. I'm looking forward to a large grocery shopping trip on Friday! Today is the last day before school starts tomorrow.

Monday - Breakfast: Pancakes and turkey sausage links with strawberry sauce. These pancakes are by far my favorite ones! I made a double batch so the kids can have these for breakfast for school if they'd like this week.
Lunch: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Dinner: Steaks on the grill, Rice, Carrots sticks. Jello for dessert.

Tuesday - First Day of School!!
Breakfast: Oatmeal or Pancakes from yesterday day
Lunch: I'll make the boys a lunch, Cheese wraps, grapes, oatmeal bar. It'll just be Hannah and I so I'm not sure what we will do.
Dinner: A favorite for the boys! To celebrate their first day of school! Spaghetti and Meatballs with homemade bread! My Dad will join us for dinner on his way home from work.

Wednesday - Breakfast: Cereal
Lunch: The boys will buy today.
Dinner: I'll pack sandwiches for the kids and I since we are taking my mother in law to the airport. Sam will be on his own, I'm sure there will be leftover spaghetti.

Thursday - Breakfast: Oatmeal or Steel Cut Oats in the Crockpot...has anyone ever put Rolled Oats in the crockpot?
Lunch: I'll pack lunches...pb&j, cheese sticks, raisins and peanuts.
Dinner: Black Bean Enchiladas or Macaroni and Cheese with Ham. Not sure yet!

Friday - Breakfast: Cereal (I'll get more creative once I hit the grocery store!)
Lunch - Boys will buy, Hannah and I will have leftovers.
Dinner: Homemade pizza. I'm thinking of making my own homemade pizza sauce. And a homemade garlic pizza sauce for one. My Mum and I used a jar on one last week and it was so yummy. I'll post my whole wheat pizza dough recipe this week! I love it!

Saturday - Breakfast: Waffles and bacon.
We are taking my kids to my parents so they can go to a party with them....which means a date for Sam and I!!! What to do??

Sunday - We are picking Sam's mom up from the airport in the evening. So either we will eat out, or I'll pack us something to eat....I'm thinking we will eat out!

Head over HERE to check out more menus!


  1. Sounds like a great menu for the week, have a great week.

  2. I've always made Mac and Cheese with hot dogs....I'm gonna have to try throwing ham in there....sounds like that would taste better than the hot
