Well, its that time of year again, folks. Back to school. Whether you are excited to send your adorable little rugrats off to school again, don’t want summer to ever end, a teacher who is finally ready to go back, or a teacher who loves teaching, but will miss her summer memories and moments with her kids (the last one is me), the time has finally come. Time to pull off the band aid and pull out the crock pot, because we are back to crazy schedules with sports, practices, and homework; not to mention trying to figure out what to make for dinner.
I will try to help you with some ideas a long the way. My girls are in 4th and 6th grade (middle school- ack!) and they both cheer. At different times… 3 nights a week. Not to mention art class and orchestra practices. I will be making some old favorites, making up new favorites, and researching my trusty cookbook collection and favorite blogs for more ideas. Here is what is on the menu for this week…
Sunday- We had some good old fashioned Bubba Burgers. I had a turkey burger. I always try to have some beef, turkey, and veggie burgers in the freezer. To make them a bit more interesting, I add a splash of Worcestershire sauce on each side. Gives them a meatier flavor.
Monday- Crockpot BBQ Chicken– No one wants to cook on the first day of school, so this crockpot favorite is very versatile. Chicken Thighs were on sale today, so I am subbing those for breasts.
Tuesday- Pasta Bake leftovers from this Saturday
Wednesday- I have to take Becca to an ice cream social at 6 pm, so probably a sandwich or something.
Thursday- Late practice night, so I will probably heat up some fish sticks or another burger for the girls. I might get a Poke bowl or Indian Food.
Friday- Pass Out on the couch and drink lots of wine… It is going to be a long week…
I will try to do better next week 😉
Peace out summer! Until next time!
