Menu Planning School Year Week 2

September 8 2014
A new school year has rolled in with some cooler temps.  Which makes me want to have soups and chili's and casseroles.  Since we are still trying to get to the cabin on weekends there are some make ahead and easy options in the menu plan as well.
Here is the link!

20 April 2014 Menu Plan

Well it is finally starting to seem like spring weather here in MN,  so some light and yummy favorites are coming up this week.
Mostly old tried and true dishes that we haven't seen in awhile...

Meatless Monday:  Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos  Plus making (2) 8x8 pans of Southwest Chicken Lasagna,  one for the freezer and one to put with my friends rest of meal and wine for another mom.  who really could use a break....
Terrific Tuesday:  Pork Noodle Salad
Working Wednesday:  Skillet Gnocchi with Shrimp and Asparagus
Thrifty Thursday:  Brinner.  using this pancake mix,  from Mel's Kitchen Cafe.  Thanks Mel.
Finally Friday:  a new favorite Maple Salmon,  with spring peas and baby potatoes.  I tried this recipe with a high level of skepticism and was surprised.  We all really liked it so it's in the mix from now on..
That's it.  Quick and easy.  Well with the exception of Monday.  That's a big bunch of cooking that day.
Can't wait!
OH! and of course I will link to Menu Plan Monday  on Monday..  well of course.
If you could leave a nice comment,  that would probably make my heart smile!  Otherwise, perhaps never mind.....

Menu for week of 24March2014

Well,  the weather is not really spring like but at least there is more sunlight.  That's about the best I can do for now.  We have one more day of spring break.  Monday.  I have come to realize how much my child talks.  and talks and talks and talks...  Maybe tomorrow we'll take in a nice quiet movie.
Anyhow,  here is the link to my menu for this week.

10March2014 Menu

Finally,  I got ahead of the week and have planned a menu that matches up with some things on sale at Cub (Atlantic Salmon!)  and made a grocery list.  My family contributed helpful suggestions like,  "do we have any soup?"  and "I like grilled cheese..."   Soooo,  maybe that's on the menu.  We will grill the salmon as it is supposed to get up to 50 degrees here on Monday.  A nice change from 40 below wind chills.  I haven't made the artichoke chicken before but it looks similar to Parmesan Tilapia with added artichoke hearts.  Whats not to like?  We shall see.
Let me know what you think????
