First of all... I know I have a few people who have "missed me".... the blog has had to take a back seat to going back to work full time. I always forget just how 100% draining the first couple of weeks of school are. It probably doesn't help that Kyson starts school too (duh huh?) and football. And well... we go from lazy hazy days of summer to BAM Full speed ahead! Couple that with trying to squeeze every moment of "summer" out of our weekends... I haven't been doing any writing.
I have however taken pictures of some great recipes I've made. And I will blog them soon. No promises... this is just "week 2" of school. However, it is also the last week of "every day football pracitices" for Kyson.
Until then... I thought it would be fun to share my week's menu. Even though I'm busy, I am committed to making time for a family dinner. Oh, and I'm back to working really hard to eat "clean". For me that means very limited grains, dairy and no processed sugar.
Momday: Grilled Asian Short Ribs, Veggie Stir Fry, Brown Rice (for the boys) I will skip the rice.
Tuesday: Grilled Pesto Chicken, Mushroom/Spinach Rissoto (this is why I will skip the Rice on Monday, I LOVE this rissoto). Sauted zucchini, yellow squash and onions.
Wednesday: Grilled Burgers, Fresh sliced tomatoes, Corn on the Cob (the season is coming to an end!!! BOO!) and the boys will have Baked Beans.
Thursday: LEFTOVERS. If no leftovers (and with the way Kyson is eating these days... there might not be!!!) I will thaw out and make a pork tenderloin in the Covered Deep Dish Baker. (Pampered Chef!) I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! W the pork we will have veggies from our CSA (we get that box on Wednesday... so not sure yet!) and mashed sweet potatoes.
Friday: Pizza on the Grill! One of my favorite fall foods!!!! I buy Mostly baked crusts from a local bakery (LaQuartier) and pull out any veggies left in the fridge from the week. Fresh Mozzarella. Panchetta. And do them on the grill. Great for an easy supper after a long week!
Saturday: I'm hoping we are going to the lake..... so "Boat food!"
Sunday: I'm hoping its as gorgeous of a day as today is, and I am going to fire up the smoker and make some smoked meats for the week ahead!!!
Share your menu plans for the week in the commnets!!! I'd love to read what eveyrone is making!!!!
