Menu: September 3-30

The new format for a monthly menu seems to be working fairly well for us. I am going to try it again this month to see how things go.

September 3-9
We are watching 4 of my nieces overnight (Friday/Saturday) so we're planning some fun meals.
  • Happy Labor Day Grilling - It is tradition around here to grill out on most holidays (including the ones where we have 2' of snow outside) and this is no exception - brats/hot dogs, potatoes, mixed veggies, corn on the cob, and most likely a jello salad
  • Comfort Food - Chicken stir fry over rice (I know this is not your "traditional" comfort food but to me it is)
  • With it being the first night of King's Kids at church, we may opt to have leftovers or eat out. 
  • Salad - Southwest grilled chicken salad - grilled chicken, black beans, red pepper strips, tortilla strips, corn kernels, red onions, fiesta blend cheese and still deciding on a dressing recipe
  • Tex-Mex - Tacos and black beans with rice
  • Soup/Sandwich - Subs, French fries, and fresh fruit
  • Italian/Pasta - Spaghetti, mixed veggies, side salad, and French bread
September 10-16
  • Breakfast for Dinner - Western Omelets and American fries
  • Tex-Mex - Stuffed peppers
  • Italian - Pizza (Caprese, veggie, and sausage/black olive stuffed crust)
  • Comfort Food - Chicken Pot Pie (I froze a second pie last month)
  • Salad - Simple Italian Pasta Salad (rotini, grilled chicken, olives, cherry tomatoes, peppers, onions, homemade garlic herb dressing, etc.)
  • Leftovers
  • Soup/Sandwich - Pulled pork and slaw and fresh fruit
September 17-23
  • Sandwich - Chicken salad sandwiches and veggie tray
  • Tex-Mex - Fajitas
  • Italian/Pasta - Calzones and salad
  • Comfort Food - Jambalaya
  • Night Out - Jared is attending a seminar and I'm spending the day with my sister and her family, then out for dinner with friends. 
  • Grilling - We've got a college/career's group activity and will be grilling steaks, baking potatoes in the crockpot, and enjoying some fresh veggies.
  • Salad - Grilled chicken salad bar and fruit salad
September 24-30
