Menu Plan Monday

Ok, I'll be the first to admit that this going back to college stuff is kicking my butt. Why oh WHY wasn't I forward thinking enough to appreciate college at 18? Dang it for my fun-loving youthful ways. To all you women out there who got (or are getting) your college education post-kids, I salute you!

In the meantime, I've got a family to feed. My kids are getting a heavier load of chores (not a bad thing) and learning to cook more than just scrambled eggs (another good thing). Oh, and the freshman 10? Not just for the teenage freshman. You'll notice lots of low fat recipes. Here's what we ALL will be cooking this week...


Applesauce Cranberry Oatmeal

French Toast
Fruit, yogurt and granola parfaits
Farmers Breakfast
Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
Pumpkin Muffins and fruit
Leftover Muffins or Pancakes


Still some leftovers from last week in the fridge
Scramble eggs, sausage and toast
Sweet and Sour Chicken and Veggies over brown rice
Baked Potato Soup and green salad
Funky Chicken Sesame Noodles with stir fry veggies
Leftover Buffet

Going back to school is tough, but will be SO worth it for you! Hang in there. I waited until my kids were in college to go back to school. I have less than a year left. Its been TOUGH but I can't wait to be done and start teaching. Meal planning and freezer cooking have been a lifesaver for me.

Yay for you going back to school. I started back last fall.It's been hard, but so worth it. My family has really picked up the slack. After having mom home all the time for 18yrs, it has been an adjustment. You will do great and it sounds like your family has your back. :)
