Meal Plan Monday - Back to School Edition

The 8 year old started 3rd grade today.  He was accepted to the talented and gifted program. In our city the talent and gifted children all go to the same school, so the 8 year old started a new elementary school today too.  He was quite nervous last week before we met his teacher and saw his classroom, enough so that he made himself physically sick.  But by today he got out of the car, walked straight up to the principal, shook his hand and introduced himself as I drove away.  I was a nervous wreck all day.  The 8 year old acted like a pro.

The meal plan has been a bit of a challenge this week due to uncertainty with back to school and me beginning to keep a second boy again.  Also I realized at some point on Saturday that I'd planned two ground beef meals right on top of us having hamburgers for supper Saturday evening.  So I did a little shuffling late last night.

Sunday - Leftovers
Make a batch of freezer pickles.

Monday - Chicken Crescent Bundles, Broccoli Salad
The 8 year old's favorite

Tuesday - Taco Macaroni and Cheese

Wednesday - Panko Crusted Chicken Topped with Chicken of the Woods with Vodka Sauce, Zucchini Fritters

Thursday - Red Beans and Rice, Salad
Another request from the 8 year old.

Friday - Grill night

Saturday - Out
I have a meeting so the boys are on their own.
