Menu Plan: Steamy September


Ugh, right?


We’re not the only ones dealing with uncomfortable weather right now; that much, I know is true. In fact, with highs only in the low 80s, I feel positively ridiculous complaining at all. The humidity is through the roof, however, and everything just feels damp and sticky around here. Pretty yucky. Still, this will pass and all will be comfy again!


Remember this little teaser I shared last week?



That’ll be happening later this month! Let’s let the temps drop just a wee bit more and we’ll get going on all the fun Fall cooking, okay?


This week, I’m keeping it pretty simple again as we ease into our new school-year schedule. No reason to do anything wild and crazy while we’re getting our footing!


Here’s the plan:




Breakfast (for the littles before 7:30am Mass)–Cheerios, Raisins, Milk

Brunch–Pancakes, Greek Yogurt, Oranges

D–Sunday Supper at B & P’s


Monday: (Happy Labor Day!)

B–Sausage & Egg Breakfast Skillets

D–Baked Penne w/ Broccoli, Shallots, & Cheese (I know, I know… everyone else is having cookouts.)





B–Cheerios, Strawberries, Milk

D–out to dinner




B–Raisin Oatmeal  steeped in apple juice, Milk

D–Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps



Thursday: (we’re off from school for Rosh Hashanah)


B–Choc. PB Oatmeal, Apples, Milk

D–Beef & Rice Enchiladas



B–Blueberry Vanilla Smoothies, Toast

D–Ham Pizza




L–Sandwiches, Pretzels, Apples

D–Hot & Sour Peanut Noodles (I’m going to be sharing another version of this dish later this month; far and away, this is one of my husband’s FAVORITE meals I make and it’s so frugal, quick, and customizable.)


And that’ll do it!


Last Friday, my parents took all three of our kids for an overnight. While they frequently do sleepovers in singles or pairs, I think that’s the first time the whole troop had stayed over! They had a ton of fun… and we did, too! I hope I’m able to bless my own children some day by taking their little ones for a night. :)


We did lobster, champagne, a moonlit walk, ice cream, slept in, and ate a leisurely breakfast of Eggs Benedict. What would be your ideal way to spend a kid-free night?
