The Addington Weekly Menu: September 19-13

This marks the second week of meal planning at our house, and it worked so well last week!  We actually ended up with extra food, which I took as lunches to work.  It was nice to have more delicious food to look forward to after four beautiful middle school band rehearsals.

I have several whole wheat waffles and "PB&J "pop tarts" left from last week's batch cooking session.  They were both a hit for Mr. Cheeks (and me!).  This week we'll continue to enjoy those, and I'll make some pumpkin bread.

I would love to make it from scratch, but I have one of these that I need to use up, and I'm anxious to see how it tastes.


I don't plan my dinners for specific nights because our schedule is unpredictable.  I am trying to do one casserole per week that can be eaten as needed, and then several other light meals.  The air is just starting to get crisp, so I'm going to treat my family to some comfort food, and a few family favorites.

UPDATE: Took this photo tonight!  It was amazing!

1. Martha Stewart's Macaroni and Cheese

2.  Real Simple Magazine's Pulled Pork Tacos
 (see photo above from a time we made them at the beach!)  We usually add some beans (black or refried) and coleslaw (store-bought if we're in a hurry).

3.  Grilled Flank Steak with Red Potatoes and a Salad
We'll buy a larger flank steak and then reuse the steak in either a dinner salad, fajitas, or steak sandwiches.

These three meals should be plenty for our family, especially because Hubby is only home three nights this week.  Happy Monday!

I love how the change of seasons sparks the desire to try new things! The onset of fall always creates a desire for yummy, warm comfort food! Those "poptarts" look so interesting! I might just have to give 'em a whirl!
