Meals for A Busy Blast

I’m not sure what happened but school just started and already we have a busy blast of activity on our calendar this week!  An activity at the elementary school  tonight, two activities (for me) tomorrow night plus work during the day, and activities at each of the boys’ schools at the same time on Thursday (we’ll have to choose on this one), all followed by a birthday party to attend on Saturday.  What happened to the lazy, hazy days of summer?

Busy or not, we still have to eat!  Busy blast weeks call for simple meals that we all like to eat.  I’m hoping we get a bit of a break to settle into a new routine after this busy blast is over.  Here’s what we’ll be eating this week while trying to juggle all the activities:    mpm-chalkboard

Monday with an academic program orientation night for J at 6p.m.

French Toast, Strawberries, orange juice (carried over from last week)

Tuesday with a PTA meeting at 5:30 and Bunco later (Hooray!) plus I work in the morning

Spaghetti and Meatballs, Garlic Toast, Salad

Wednesday is a free night (Maybe?)

Slider Hamburgers & French Fries

Thursday is either an activity at the elementary school or meet the teacher night at the middle school (I’m leaning toward the middle school event and J can go with the neighbors if he really wants to do the elementary activity)

Pan Fried Pork Chops, Baked potatoes, Salad

Friday is another free night so far.

Chicken in some shape or form depending on my mood.


Topping off our busy blast of a week is a kid home from school with a bad cold.  At least, our meals are planned and all the ingredients are here waiting for me.  If you haven’t planned your meals yet or need some new ideas (I know I’m always looking for new ideas.), go check out Menu Plan Monday over at I’m An Organizing Junkie.

What’s on your plate this week?

    Busy blast – great term!
    And a kid home from school with a bad cold – right when school starts??? Oh no! That’s too bad. I have a horrible sinus cold right now – hit me out of nowhere like BAM and I’m miserable. But school doesn’t start here until after Labor Day so I’m doing a lot of being miserable and Kidzilla – bless her heart – is being tolerant and patient and watching quiet movies and taking care of her Mamma. But I’d really like to kick this!
    Hope yours kicks the cold fast!

      I hope you are feeling better! He’s already on the mend, thankfully it was the kind of cold that only lasts the 3-4 days and he started on Saturday so was able (although not enthused) to go to school yesterday.
