Meal Planning 2016 - Week 36
Well, summer vacation has come to an end around here, and this week, the kids go back to school. I think we are all a little sad to see summer end, but excited at what lies ahead this year. In typical Sunday fashion, I spent part of my day on meal prep for the week. It's always refreshing to me to return to our school year routine and schedule.
When preparing my weekly meal plan, I keep an eye towards making them healthy AND keeping on a budget. It's so easy to let your food bill get out of hand, believe me, I've done it plenty of times. As I work on more and more meal plans, I've gotten better at buying what we actually eat and also not buying too much. Both of those things save me money each week.
So let's jump back into that school-year schedule! Here's what we have planned for this week:
Monday - End of Summer Celebration Family Dinner Out
Tuesday - First Day of School Homemade Chicken Fingers, Broccoli and Potatoes
Wednesday - Pasta with Easy Weeknight Bolognese (I need to post that recipe!), Caesar Salad
Thursday - Back to School Night - Quick Dinner
Friday - Homemade Pizza Night
Saturday - Leftover Buffet / YOYO (You're On Your Own)
Sunday - Chicken Quesadillas, Rice and Avocados
