Meal planning is a great way to save money on groceries and you won't be standing in front of the fridge at 4pm, wondering what to make!
Happy Sunday!!! Well, it's finally here, Back to School time!! The kids go back on Tuesday and inside I am doing the happy dance. This past week, they've been bickering like an old married couple. It'll be nice to have a quiet house again, LOL. I have enjoyed our summer though. We've been so busy, it went quickly. We enjoyed camping at Grundy Lake Provincial Park, visiting my Mother in Law in the U.S (who spoiled us rotten by the way) and camping with my parents (even if it was COLD and rainy). With the kids getting older, we need to make the most of summer vacation, because there may be a time where they don't want to hang out with dear ole Mom and Dad anymore :(.

This week shouldn't be too busy, although it may take us the whole week to get back into the school groove. The only thing I'm dreading is packing lunches. I'm feeling uninspired in the school lunch department this year. OK well not really, but Queenie has become so picky, that I'm hoping I can keep her lunches fun during the school year. I'll also have to start making dinner earlier, because as Fall and Winter approach, the sun starts setting earlier. Not good for a food blogger that relies on natural light to take photos.
Here is what I have planned for this week
- Italian Wedding Soup with English muffins
- Sweet and Sour Chicken (new recipe) with brown rice and green beans
- Oven roast whole chicken with potatoes and carrots
- Salmon Stroganoff (new recipe) with tossed salad
- Vegetable Lo Mein
