Menu Plan Monday - Week of August 25th, 2012

Our "typical" back-to-school breakfast.
This week is back-to-school week for us.  The kiddos start 2nd grade already.  They are more than ready. Mom? Not so sure!  They have a three day week this week and are home with me the other two days. I'm excited to have a couple of days home with them before we really kick it into high gear here!

When the children started 3-year-old preschool, we started a breakfast tradition on the first day of school of having doughnuts for breakfast.  The kids chose and we said "sure!".  It's the one day per year when they get doughnuts for breakfast, so we can certainly live with that!  The picture above was taken on the first day of kindergarten (I neglected to take a photo last year), and I'm pretty sure we're up to two doughnuts and a whole orange a piece, especially since Buddy is in the middle of a growth spurt (mothers of boys out there - look out!).  That boy can out-eat John and I combined when he's growing!
