Back To School Menu Plan

by | Main Dish | 6 comments

I have a dear friend who often says, “Lay your plan and work your plan.” (Thank you, Tanya Foster!) This is exactly what I am doing!  Today I want to share my Back to School Menu Plan.  We basically have first day of school three different weeks in my home this year and the first is Friday!

Megan_Weaver_15So as you avoid the “What’s for dinner?” question at 5 o’clock over the next few weeks, I’ll be turning to my easiest and most loved recipes.  Things that take little prep time, my family loves and have a bit left for a lunch or two.  Yikes! Back to packing lunches, again….sigh…

Quinoa Edamame Lettuce Wraps

Brisket sandwiches

Mediterranean Salad with Roasted Chicken

Here’s what is on my list.  Would love to know your go-to recipes, too!

    The meals sound delicious. It is nice to have a meal plan when the kids return to school. the Mediterranean Salad with Rotisserie Chicken sounds delicious and easy to prepare. Tacos are one of my go to meals.

    I think the only recipe I can get on board with is the “Slow Cooker Beef Brisket”! I am a very plain, and simple eater….and don’t like foods mixed together!
