After three weeks of not really menu planning, I knew that I had to get back into gear this week. Of course, one of those weeks (10 days) was spent on vacation, so I had a good reason and really didn't flounder quite as much as it might sound I did. Plus, during that time, we found a new family favorite and enjoyed it twice in that window - Pizza Sticks (one night we had it on its own with salad and the other time we paired it with crustless pizza).
This week things quiet down a bit from a scheduled activity perspective, but with the holidays fast approaching, it is good to have some time to be able to fit in all of those other things - like cookie baking (you can check out my 12 days of Christmas cookies series over on my A Busy Mom of Two in the Kitchen blog for inspiration if you are looking for ideas) and errand running.
Barbeque Turkey Sandwiches
Turkey Noodle Soup
Parmesan Crusted Tilapia
Chicken and Dumplings (or perhaps leftovers)
dinner with friends
During the week, breakfast is usually a bowl of cereal or oatmeal. Lunches are either the hot lunch from school or packed lunches for the kids. My husband and I have leftovers, frozen meals or sandwiches.
