What's for Eats? Sunday August 31st, 2014

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

I'm sharing this meal plan over at OrgJunkie.com

Thanks for the menu plan! I am sitting here making my grocery list and planning my week. Here's my thoughts so far: Pork and Salami Rolls, Dump Chicken in the Crock Pot, Spaghetti and Meatballs (I have some meatballs frozen from the last time I made them) and Grilled Tuna Steaks. I also just made a Ginger Pear cake and in the process of making Peach Cobbler with some great local peaches. I have a question. When you say leftovers, how do you do it? Do you augment with new stuff or simply leftovers?

Hun.., What's for Dinner? said...

That sounds delicious Carmel! I always make a bit more than needed, when I cook. Often times my husband eats at work, so his portion of dinner doesn't get eaten. A few night a week, everyone chooses what they'd like to eat up and we go from there. Sometimes if we eat all of the dinners I make, then we just do toast and eggs, but we are usually scrounging around to eat anything that has been left.
