Menu Plan Monday - September 1st

Wow - is it really September already? I can barely remember all the things we meant to do this summer, and here we are with summer almost behind us. Our schedule doesn't change all that much since DS is far too young to be off to school just yet, but at work things will be crazy for the next week and a half, and then the extra time will dry up until Thanksgiving/Christmas. So I'm working yet ANOTHER overtime-laden week, though at least this time I managed to cram everything into 4 days so that I have plenty of time off mixed in.

I am trying a bunch of new recipes this week - my printer has been working overtime as I've read through all of the great Menu plans from last week! We didn't have too many experiments last week, the BBQ Quesadillas were good but not as crispy as I had envisioned...that should be an easy fix and I'll adjust the recipe once I figure out how :) The Sausage and Summer Squash was a hit, and the Naan toasted up really nice in the broiler - this one will definitely get into regular rotation!

Here's my week, head on over to I'm an Organizing Junkie to see what's for dinner elsewhere!

monday: Zucchini cakes with mushroom ragout - made with Homesteader Cornbread instead of muffin mix (see bottom of recipe page) ($6.29 - $1.57/serving)

tuesday: Bee Rocks - I had never heard of this recipe before but it sounds like a Shepherd's pie hot pocket - yummy! ($4.99 for12 servings! - $0.41/serving)

wednesday: BBQ pork ribs in the slow cooker, leftover corn muffins from Monday, mixed veggies ($11.53 for 8 servings - $1.44/serving)

thursday: Leftover day! Boys will fend for themselves while I'm working the night.

friday: Comfort food day - Grilled cheese sandwiches, Tomato soup ($1.95 - $0.97/serving)

saturday: 7-Layer Casserole ($5.88 - $1.17/serving)

sunday: Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken, egg noodles, mixed veggies ($5.73 - $1.43/serving)

Thanks for the comment on my page. I am glad someone else goes through the same thing and agrees that it doesnt matter what people say. Can I ask you a question. I am one of those people, well, I have certain expectations for the way I raise my children, so I expect other people to do things like I do, as far as making sure you give them plenty of attention, working on them with things like the abc's and animals, and coloring and things to get their brain going, and not letting them talk naughty, so when I see children that are just those types you dont want to be around I get a little nervous. I dont want to be the parent of the kids that nobody wants to be around. Which is silly because my boy is so cute, and smart and funny, he is just really hyper sometimes, and often doesnt listen real good when with other children, which is only natural for a 3 year old boy. So why do I worry about it so much and am I the only one? I have seen my fair share of 'bastard children' and I am very sure my children are not like that. I am also very easily annoyed by kids that are not mine, I dont know why but I am. I dont know how to break it. Any advice?
