Menu Plan and Some Changes!
We are preparing for some MAJOR changes at our home this week. My oldest child is heading off to public school for the first time! This will bring many changes to our routines. We'll be getting up much earlier and I'll be preparing two breakfasts each day (!?!?) as well as packing a lunch. I won't lie- I'm more than a little nervous about sending him off. I can't imagine how it feels to send a kindergartner off!!! Any tips from parents who have home schooled and then put their child in public school would be much appreciated!!
A big plus about this change is that I cook when I'm nervous and this weekend I browned 20lbs of beef and cooked a chicken that I'll shred and freeze the broth. I've made several batches of freezer cookie dough (must have warm chocolate chip cookies ready after school!!) and mixed up muffin mixes.
Here's what's cooking this week at our house-
baked peanut butter oatmeal
eggs and bacon
chocolate chip coffee cake
Lunches leftovers or
baked potato bar
3 packet roast/mashed potatoes/Parmesan green beans
marinated flank steak/crashed potatoes
