Menu Plan Monday - Extreme Schedule Edition
I know it's still technically summer vacation, but tomorrow is the start of a very hectic week for our family. My son is now in high school marching band, and any of you who have ever been in band or have had a kid in band know that August means band camp week. That means my son will have band practice from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. every night this week. On top of that, I will teaching eMINTS classes every day. We won't be able to come home for dinner because we live in a different town than Corey attends school. Oh, but there's more! My husband's band is playing at the fair this week, so he has rehearsals. And, to top it off, Corey's Eagle Court of Honor will be at our house on Saturday. Eek! I'm having one of those "I have way too much on my plate" feelings this week. So, unfortunately, we will probably be eating out more than I would like this week. I can't even rely on my usual desperation dinner plans. I promise you will get better ideas from me next week, but I'll share this week anyway. :) I like people to know that I have bad weeks, too. Just to help you out, here's the menu from the equivalent week last year. The Won Ton Tacos and Lasagna Ciabattas are great. Here's this week's poor excuse for a menu. For more ideas, visit orgjunkie.com.
Sunday - Creamy Chicken Breasts, Green Beans, Cheddar Potato Strips
Monday - Leftovers from yesterday (will bring to my library and heat up in microwave during Corey's dinner break)
Tuesday - Chili, Peanut Butter Sandwiches (again, in the library)
Wednesday - Chili Spaghetti (leftover chili over spaghetti noodles with shredded cheddar on top) (yes, in the library again)
Thursday - out to eat (hubby playing at the fair)
Friday - out to eat (I will be out of town at a library meeting)
Saturday - BBQ Pork Sandwiches for 50 people (eek!) - Eagle Court of Honor
And just a quick family side note for those who might be interested...
Eric got to jump our almost 8-year-old black lab, Nimbus, in a Dock Dogs competition this weekend. She qualified for finals, which were held today, and she won first place in her division! It was pretty awesome as we haven't taken her to a competition in two years, and she was the oldest dog in the contest. Way to go, Nimbus!
