Posted August 22, 2011 12:34 p.m. EDT

On the menu this week we have Greek pasta and spinach salad, garlic shrimp, pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches, zucchini, spinach and tofu lasagna, and more!

What's on your menu this week?


Hot dogs (Hebrew National 97% fat free beef dogs were on sale BOGO a couple weeks ago)

Pasta Salad

Watermelon (on sale at Kroger this week)

I am also taking some time today to batch cook some blueberry pancakes and cinnamon French toast for the kids to enjoy once school starts on Thursday. On Tuesday, I'll be batch cooking some tortilla, scrambled egg and cheese roll-ups on Tuesday. I will cook them up, cool them off and freeze them in single serving foil packets. When the girls are ready for their early morning school breakfasts, we can either microwave or toast them and enjoy! No stress and a delicious, healthy, warm breakfast. Life is good.


Breakfast casserole – it was on the menu last week but we ended up having something else so here it is again on the menu this week.
