Menu Plan Monday- Aug 17th

As we slowly adjust to the upcoming new preschool schedule, my normal Monday routines are changed. Yesterday, rather than going grocery shopping we went to music group. We normally meet on Tuesday. But since the kids going to preschool this year and evenly divided between Tues/ Thurs schedules and Wed/Fri schedules, we have moved the group to Mondays. So with no grocery shopping yesterday, I was not as motivated to get my menu up. Last night we had black bean soup and corn bread muffins for dinner. It worked out nicely for the rainy day that yesterday was. I was craving corn bread and was glad to find a simple recipe that didn't take too much time. The last time I made corn bread the recipe, while very very good, took some work. And for the soup I used the dry soup mix I was given a few years back. Just added a can of black beans to give it more texture (otherwise it is really mushy). Last weeks menu went pretty well. I don't really have any highlights. Ian's party in the park was wonderful. I plan on commenting more on his birthday later. Even though I know it was now over a week ago. I'm so slow sometimes.

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband!!!! I love you lots.

Okay, here is the plan for the rest of the week.

Tuesday: Chicken and rice casserole, green bean side
Wednesday: Sweet potato and black bean burritos
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Pizza
Saturday: Movie and dinner to celebrate Mark and my anniversary!
Sunday: Breakfast dinner
