Mom, What’s for dinner? – August 2016

I can’t believe it is already August.  I go back to work on August 10 so the majority of our dinners are going to be quick and easy or cooked in the slow cooker.

I only plan for five meals during the week so that we can have a leftover night.  I don’t have a set day for the leftover night or a set day for any of the meals.  There are few meals that have to be eaten before the other meals.  The reason for that is because I’m going to repurpose the leftovers.  I also tried to incorporate one meal that I know one or both of the boys will enjoy during the week.

If I go off track of the meal plan, I will substitute meals from the 10 quick and easy meals blog post.  Any of those meals are liked by my family.  Plus I usually have those items in my pantry.

Meal prep is going to essential to making sure dinner gets on the table and that I have lunches and breakfasts ready to go for those busy mornings.  On Sunday, I will have a breakfast, lunch, and snack menu for the work week.  I’m planning to have a couple of those each month not only for the readers but for me so that I have ideas for what to pack for breakfast and lunch.
