>Menu Plan – Week of August 16

>Summer is quickly drawing to a close here … sniff, sniff! We are still planning, Lord willing, two more trips to the beach and then it’s back into the Autumn and Winter routines full swing. I have thoroughly enjoyed this season and the extra time with little man at home. But, I can say with confidence it’s been way too hot for my liking and I am eagerly anticipating the milder temperatures that Autumn brings. I am certainly hoping temperatures will be milder by the time late September arrives. I am participating in a 5K race – a first for me – at the end of September. We have 2 fun play dates planned this week with litte man’s best buddies. There will definitely be a few batches of Sour Gummies made this week!

Sunday, August 15:
B – Blueberry Fritters with bacon
L – Leftover pork roast and potato salad from a BBQ on Saturday
D – Rotisserie Chicken, green beans, baked potatoes

Weeknight Dinners:

  • Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta with a green salad
  • Ranch and mushroom pork chops, green beans (recipe coming later this week)
  • Egg rolls with crunchy Asian slaw (recipe coming later this week)
  • Grilled fish, saffron rice, green salad

Baking, Freezer Cooking, Etc.:
One of my goals this year is to get away from packaged spice mixes and make our own. We have a wonderful fajita seasoning in the pantry now and I want to try to make a few more this week.
