Hello, September. Vacation is over. A. starts school this week, and then G. begins next week. Time to get back into meal planning and cooking. I think it’s possible we’ve ordered more take out and eaten in more restaurants this month than we did in January through July combined. On one hand, I’m appalled, but on the other it makes me realize how good a job I was doing the rest of the year!
I’m going to start packing lunches for A. some days this school year, a first for us, so I’ll be writing about packing snack and lunch in the coming weeks. I’ve been thinking a lot about it this summer.
I’m keeping it simple this week, and since our weekend plans are up in the air we may just do some refrigerator dinners or easy pasta and vegetables.
Monday: Eggplant & mushroom “meat”balls in sauce, whole wheat pasta, salad
Tuesday: Kabocha squash & black bean burritos (from the freezer), brown rice
Wednesday: Baked chicken drumsticks, corn on the cob, farm share veggies
Thursday: Roasted rolled turkey breast (stuffed?), rainbow orzo, farm share veggies
