** There will be no weekly menu next week or the next as we have some out of town adventures planned. A new menu should be posted on October 4th! J
Sunday: Make Our Own Pizza Night
Chad was gone on a hunting trip, so the kids and I made our own pizzas on whole wheat sandwich thins and had a bonus movie night since Monday was a holiday.
Monday: Breakfast for Dinner
One more no-Daddy night as he was at his fantasy football draft, so the kids and I had breakfast burritos with eggs, sausage, and cheese and a side of fruit.
Tuesday: Callen’s Birthday Dinner!!!
We always let our kids choose what they want to eat on their birthdays, and for his 5th birthday, Callen chose Papa Murphy’s Pizza! Easy for me…tasty for everyone!
Wednesday: Dinner at Mom’s
Thursday: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Fresh Fruit & Veggies
Chad out of town + Ranger’s baseball practice at 4:30 + Callen’s soccer practice at 6:30 = Kid Friendly Dinner of grilled cheese J
Friday: Grilled Turkey Dogs & Chicken Sausage, Mac-n-Cheese, & Roasted Green Beans
Chad grilled turkey dogs and chicken sausage while I made roasted green beans and mac-n-cheese for sides. I used a tip from my sister-in-law and used plain Greek yogurt in the place of milk in the mac-n-cheese. It’s delish! It’s also thicker, so it’s less messy for kids…win/win! This is a perfect Family Movie Night meal!
Saturday: Grilled Venison Kabobs with Roasted Zucchini & Carrots & Leftover Mac-n-Cheese
It was an absolutely gorgeous evening…perfect for dinner al fresco!! Chad added large cherry tomatoes and thick-sliced zucchini to the kabobs, but I also roasted some smaller, diced zucchini with baby carrots inside because the kids prefer the smaller veggies.
*I’ll have a new menu in a couple of weeks!!
