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.
