I’m taking a little break while the bread dough rises to share this week’s menu plan with you all!
Despite the fact that I keep seeing “back to school” shots and stories showing up in my feed (say it isn’t so!), the fact is that we still have half of summer ahead of us. You know me– stickler for the “real” seasons. Summer lasts until the 21st(-ish) of September, so I’m not craving pumpkin and nutmeg anytime soon, thankyouverymuch.
We’ve had a mild, gorgeous summer here in New England and you won’t hear me complain one bit! In fact, we’ve breezed through the last week of July and the first week of August with absolutely no need of air conditioning of any kind. Fantastique! Nonetheless, since it is summer and warm and sometimes erratically busy, I often crave a simple, kind of light, menu plan. This week’s fits that bill perfectly!
Light on the meat and maintenance, these dishes are easy on me and easy on the budget– and the whole family likes them. So! Here’s the plan for what we’re eating:
B–Cheerios, Apples, Milk ( before 7:30AM Mass)
L–Blueberry Pancakes, Sausage, OJ
D–Chicken Breast Stuffed w/ Goat Cheese, Lemon Balsamic Broccoli, Rice (YUM, right? Having friends who write cookbooks has its perks! )
B–Pancakes, Oranges, Milk
D–Hot & Sour Peanut Noodles with “California mix” veggies (no pork this time)
B–Cheerios, Apples, Milk
B–Egg Wraps, Oranges
D–One Pot Wonder Chicken Parm, Peas
B–Dandelion Scones, Apples (sub lemon for lime and dandelion jam for the blackberry part )
B–Banana Wineberry Smoothies, Toast
B–Scr. Eggs w/ Broccoli & Cheese, Toast
D–Hot Dogs, Beans, Pickles, Carrot Sticks
And, that’ll do it!
