Menu Plan: Summer Overload!



Every summer, there’s a week of chaos. It’s that week when a million things seem to be happening and, while they’re all fun, it can also seem pretty wild and crazy as we rush here, there, and everywhere.


This is that week.


It doesn’t feel as bad as years past, however, and I’m not sure if that’s because our schedule is lighter or I’m just getting a touch better at managing the crazy. Either way, I’m not feeling stressed, but I am embracing the beauty of a simple menu plan!




you gotta eat

Here’s what we’ve been eating and will be eating through the week–




B–Cheerios, Apples, & Milk for the littles, before 7:30AM Mass

L–Leftovers before heading to the beach!

D–We seriously ate all day. Chips and salsa. Meatballs. Veggie tray. Some wine. Strawberries. More chips. Burgers. Cookies and cream rice crispy treats. That salt air must have stimulated our apetites!! (It also made our children crash like rocks that night. ;) )



B– Blueberry Muffins, Bacon, Mixed Fruit, Milk

D–BBQ Hot Dogs, Honey Corn Bread, Oranges



B–Honey Corn Bread, Apple Slices, Milk


D–Chicken & Black Bean Burritos (Chicken & Rice for my bean-hating hubby.)




B–Cheerios, Yogurt with mixed berries

D–Cheesy Peas & Rice (date night)



B–PB Raisin Toast, Cranberry Juice

D–Tomato Soup, Cheese Bread



B–Wild Black Raspberry Muffins, Scrambled Eggs

D–Lg. Cheese Pizza, Med. Onion Pizza



Vanilla Blackberry Oven Pancake


B–Black Raspberry Oven Pancake, Bacon, Fruit

D–Penne w/ Crab & Jack Sauce



And, that’ll do it! Nothing super exciting happening, but that’s okay. Sometimes simple just needs to be the name of the game. :)

    I think those crazy weeks get just a bit easier the older the kids get. They are better able to handle the transitions, waiting and getting ready to go out the door better. They also need less extra stuff and can go longer without needing snacks and drinks. We also pick up little tricks to making things run smoothly.
