Monthly Menu Plan – September 2020

Did I just say MONTHLY?! I sure did! Here’s the situation… our school situation has changed – all 3 kids will be at home learning virtually until at least November (day one was today and it was MUCH better than I was expecting!). Abe is slowly starting to travel again, and activities are starting also. Riley is in marching band, both boys are in Scouts, Audrey starts dance this week. So I’m being kind to myself and I planned an entire month’s worth of meals at one shot.

This is a list of the meals I’ll be making this month. I promise I serve veggies, I just choose what we have at the moment or what someone requests to go with the meal.

Sausage & tortellini
Chicken tacos
Grilled chicken & salad bar
MYO pizza
Hot dogs & hamburgers
Mommy nuggets and mac & cheese
Ham & pierogies
Orange chicken – I found this at Target and my kids love it!
Beef tacos
Pork chops
Wings & fries
Spaghetti & meatballs
Pork roast & mashed potatoes
Flank steak
Zucchini Pesto Pasta – this is a new one for us to try
Chicken cobb pitas – another new one!
Meatball sandwiches
Pork tacos

My kids love yogurt and granola for breakfast or for a snack, and I’ve been making my own granola for a number of years. This is the recipe that I use (and I have no idea where it came from anymore):

½ c. butter
½ c. honey
3 c. dry oatmeal
¼ tsp. salt
¼ c. milled flax seed

Mix the oats & flax seed in a large bowl. Melt the butter and honey together and stir into the oats. Spread in one layer on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. 10 minutes after taking the pan out of the oven loosen the granola from the pan with a spatula. After cooled, store in an airtight container.
