Menu Plan Monday - Week of September 5


Another weekend, started off by Labor Day!  I'm having a hard time believing that summer is just a memory and another school year is upon us.  Where does that time go?

We're starting something new this week since I start teaching on Wednesday - John is making dinner Wednesday and Friday this week, since I won't get home until about 830pm on Wednesday and 730pm on Friday. Now, he's made dinner on Fridays for a long time and did most of the cooking the first 10 years of our marriage, so it really isn't that big of a deal.  Right now he's in school 2/3 time and working full time, so to me it feels like a big deal.  So I'm making a small step into freezer cooking.  I'll post more about that later since for right now, I need to post what we're eating this week!
