Menu, Week of 8/11



School starts tomorrow! I thought I was all prepared for this, but I woke up at 7:00 this morning and realized that not only do I need to make a quick run for lunch supplies, I didn’t get pocketed dividers for the boy’s binder. Oh, and I need to go pay for the bus! Plus my mom is coming over for dinner and I have that pesky job taking up much of my day. Thank goodness for lunch breaks and relatively easy dinners

Sunday: I went out with a friend, the kids had Italian sausages

Monday: Steak with shrimp scampi on top, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed broccoli, yellow squash and onions, cauli-rice (I know, this has been on my menu for the past two weeks as well, but I just couldn’t make it happen. It *will* happen tonight, though, as the steaks are already thawed.)

Tuesday: First day of school! The kids are going to their dad’s and I am taking a pottery class, so this will be leftovers or a quick omelet for me.

Wednesday: Bratwurst, steamed broccoli

Thursday: Low carb Paella–another dish I just haven’t made happen yet.

Friday: Just me again, so either leftovers or an omelet again

Saturday: I am leaving this one open–I think I am going to a friend’s house, but if not, I can make a plan when I get there.

As always, lots more ideas can be found at

  1. I still have to go today and get a new MUST BE BLUE school box for my 3rd grader before we drop off supplies at the school tonight. I do think easy meals are the way to go this week.

  2. Hey there – it’s been a while so i thought I’d say hi. I can’t believe school is already starting. We don’t start for a couple of more weeks here – I haven’t even begun to school shop! Your steak with shrimp scampi sounds yummy. We can’t do steaks right now because our burners on the grill are shot, brats are pretty much all they’ll handle! Have a good week.

    • Hey, how are you? I was just thinking of you the other day when I was thinking about going to Olympia for dinner, :).

      That is too bad about the grill burners. I have to admit, I did the steaks inside in a grill pan–so much faster than my charcoal grill. The shrimp scampi over the steaks was great–butter, lots of garlic, fresh basil from the garden and salad shrimps so that there was a good ratio of steak bites to shrimp bites, :).
