Meal Planning - August 23

A new school year, a new meal plan! I am feeling somewhat reluctant to make a shopping list and actually go get groceries this afternoon, but as I sit here and bask in the warm glow of friends and events from this weekend, it gets a little easier to motivate myself. One of the most awesome developments of this summer was my husband getting more actively involved in meal planning and cooking dinners, so all of the dinners this week were planned by him, while I did the lunches. I must note that tomorrow is the first day of school for most kids here in Texas, and we are marking Monkey Boy's first day of Kindergarten with the traditional first day of school lunch from my childhood: a Lunchable. So much sodium, but even more memories ;-)

Monday Lunch - Lunchable, Apple Slices, Green Salad w/Dressing of Choice

Monday Dinner - Potato Soup (made ahead & frozen), French Bread, Green Salad w/Dressing of Choice

Tuesday Lunch - Turkey Sandwich on Wheat Bread, Green Grapes, Baby Carrots

Tuesday Dinner - n/a (bowling league night)

Wednesday Lunch - PB&J (AB&J for me) on Wheat Bread, Mango Slices, Green Salad w/Dressing of Choice

Wednesday Dinner - Spaghetti with Meat Sauce (sauce made ahead & frozen), Garlic Bread, Green Beans

Thursday Lunch - Spaghetti with Leftover Meat Sauce, Apple Slices, Steamed Broccoli

Thursday Dinner - n/a (bowling league night)

Friday Lunch - Turkey Sandwich on Wheat Bread, Yogurt, Fresh Berries
