Menu Plan for the Week 8/28 – 9/3


Last week’s menu plan went pretty much according to schedule, but the baking I had planned pretty much didn’t.

I was able to get the Homemade Graham Crackers made (yum!) and the Honey Oatmeal Bread baked, which, by the way, turned out fabulously with a few changes. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get the new version of the oatmeal bread posted soon.

Now just because I wasn’t able to keep to my original baking plan doesn’t mean I didn’t spend time baking last week. My husband called me Thursday to tell me he had forgotten to turn his cell phone off during a class we was taking for work.

The penalty: He either had to take everyone out for drinks or provide breakfast for the class of 13 men Friday morning.

Since we don’t drink and don’t encourage others to do so, he chose the second option. Thankfully, I love to bake.


I whipped up two dozen Banana Nut Muffins with Streusel Topping and a loaf of Applesauce Bread, threw in a big bowl of grapes and sent him on his way.

This week since my husband is not going to be joining us for dinner, I planned a very kid friendly menu for the first part of the week. Then we’re all going out of town for Labor Day weekend, so I guess you could say, I’ve got it easy this week 🙂

Here’s what’s cooking this week:



  • Sunday – Eat Out
  • Monday – Homemade Pizza
  • Tuesday – Macaroni & Cheese Casserole, Fried Okra (One of my kids’ absolute favorite meals!)
  • Wednesday – Turkey Dogs
  • Thursday – Not sure Yet (Something that won’t leave leftovers)
  • Friday – Out of Town
  • Saturday – Out of Town

Lunches usually consist of leftovers from the night before, or grilled cheese quesadillas on whole wheat tortillas, fruit, and other quick fix foods.

Yeah, I know. This is definitely not my finest menu plan, but we all deserve a break every once in a while, right?

What’s on your menu plan this week?
