Menu Plan October 11-17, 2015

Here's what's cooking at our house this week...

Sunday -- Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops, Pasta, Veggies
Monday -- Italian Meatballs, Gravy, Pasta, Veggies
Tuesday -- YOYO
Wednesday -- Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Salad
Thursday -- YOYO
Friday -- Taco Salad (Hosting Bunco for Homeschool Mom's Night Out)
Saturday -- YOYO (Fall Festival at Church)

Beginning next week, Caleb has to cook one meal a week by himself...this week is just too busy.  I'll be there for moral support and to lend a helping hand when requested, but he's going to hopefully do most of it by himself.  We'll see how it goes...Micah will join him at a later date.

Menu Plan October 4-10, 2015

Well, if you see things repeated you know I didn't do so well at sticking to the menu.  That doesn't mean we ate out...it just means we fended for ourselves because I didn't cook for whatever reason.  That's why there are always easy things available.  Sometimes I'm tempted to post the menu and then reality of what we ate each night...that would be fun to see.  

Here's what's cooking this week...

Sunday -- Hamburgers
Monday -- Philly Cheesesteak Green Peppers, Salad
Tuesday -- YOYO
Wednesday -- Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops, Veggies, Pasta
Thursday -- Breakfast for Dinner
Friday -- Grilled Salmon Burgers, Salad
Saturday -- Frikadellen, Veggies, Pasta

What's cooking at YOUR house this week?

Menu Plan September 27-October 3, 2015

Well, I did just okay with the menu plan last week.  Last week was our first crazy, busy week, and it was tough and tiring.  However, with time, I think we will get into a routine and adjust to the busy schedule.

Here's what's cooking at our house this week...

Sunday -- Frikadellen, steamed veggies, pasta
Monday -- Italian meatballs, gravy, pasta, steamed veggies
Tuesday -- YOYO
Wednesday -- YOYO (It's my birthday, and I'm not going to cook if I can help it)
Thursday -- Crockpot chicken tacos
Friday -- Hamburgers, salad
Saturday -- Pretzel crusted tilapia, salad

What's cooking at YOUR house this week?  Do you have a crazy, busy schedule this fall, too?  How do you manage?  I'd love to see your tips.

Menu Plan September 20-26, 2015

It's been a while since I posted a menu plan.  I'm really trying to get back into planning out meals now that our schedule is so busy.  With us being out of the house 4 days a week, sometimes twice a day, I have to have a plan in place.  Otherwise, we will end up eating out or eating garbage.

So, wish me luck as I try to get back into the menu planning groove.  Here's what's cooking this week...

Sunday -- Pizza Casserole, Salad
Monday -- YOYO
Tuesday -- Hamburgers, Salad
Wednesday -- Frikadellen, Green Beans & Mushrooms, Pasta
Thursday -- Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Friday -- Spaghetti, Salad
Saturday -- Turkey Tenderloin, Gravy, Sweet Potato Tots, Green Beans & Mushrooms

***I am still following the Trim Healthy Mama (THM) plan; however, I have been very slack the past month or so.  I'm trying to get back into that groove as well.  Please note that if you see pasta on my menu, I'm not eating it...it's for my boys and husband.  The only pasta I eat is the occasional Dreamfields when we are having spaghetti.  Most of my meals still fall within the THM guidelines, but some of the sides aren't, so I won't partake of them.  I just didn't want anyone from THM who has followed my blog to be confused and think that I'm eating off plan.***

Week 1 of 2015-16 Homeschool Year in Pictures

I thought I'd change up my weekly homeschool review posts this year.  I'm going to post pictures from our homeschool weeks.  It may be weekly, or it may not...time will tell.  I'm not going to accompany the pictures with any descriptions...I'll let them speak for themselves.  With that said, here's week 1 in pictures.
