Menu Plan Monday

A week before school starts. The countdown is on. We may try to fit in another beach day on Monday. I'll have to check the weather. We also have to be back in time for the first soccer practice.

Little man is excited that it's starting. He wants to practice tonight but I am working on freezer cooking and Big Daddy is going on day 5 of low grade temp and GI symptoms. May have to force him to the Dr tomorrow. For now he is comfortable on the couch watching golf (how that is interesting I'll never know).

We made a huge grocery trip today. We hit 4 stores today and I have 3 more to visit tomorrow to get the rest of supplies. After that we should be good for the month besides a milk and egg run in 2 weeks. Got some good deals today especially on cereal . We should be set on cereal for about 2 months! Unless I start serving it for dinner :)

On the cooking note Cole and I found an old cookbook at my Mom's house. We are planning on making one recipe a week from it. The Gold Medal Alpha Bakery Cook Book. We will start with A and for the next 26 weeks make a recipe. First up is Apple Crisp! My mouth is already watering.

On the menu for this week.
Monday - BLT's (need to use some Tomatoes) and fried Zucchini (need to use some zucchini)
Tuesday - Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs (from the freezer).
Wednesday - Grilled Tilapia with Peach Sauce
Thursday - Turkey Burgers
Friday - Fish and Shrimp Taco's
Saturday - Homemade Pizza
Sunday - BBQ Chicken and Cheese, Rice and Broccoli Casserole.

I also have enough zucchini left over to make a chocolate cake.

Head over to my sister in law's blog to check out her menu. She is a teacher and heading back to school this week. She has 2 wonderful little boys (2 years and 5 months) to help keep her on track! Wish her luck!

Have a great week everyone!
