Menu Plan Monday September 2!


Happy September and Happy Labor Day! I am so looking forward to some cooler weather here in Florida! Last week went well although we ate less than I had planned. Oh well, I always love leftovers. They are especially handy since I’ve been packing lunch a couple of times a week so that we can have lunch at the park before going home after school. It’s all in the name of wearing my toddler out so that I don’t have to play the “get back in the bed and go to sleep” game as much!

The theme for the GF Menu Swap over at Gluten Free Detroit Metro this week 30 minutes or less. I don’t know if I’ve always been that way, but most of the recipes I have NEED to be 30 minutes or less or something bad happens. I get distracted or someone distracts me or I just forget to start early enough! Some of my favorite “Ah dinner should have been started 20 minutes ago what are we going to eat!” dinners/suppers are: Tuna Apple Salad, Leftover platter, breakfast for dinner, grilled cheese, grilled veggie wrap, and Strawberry Melon Spinach Salad just to name a few.

Too early for Pumpkin smoothies? I don't think so!

We’re planning on making one thing for the preschooler’s breakfast as we’ve been having a bit of a discussion of what to eat and when we’re going to eat it first thing in the morning. Not cool at all. This week I will be making a batch of Paleo Breakfast Cookies and that will be what the princess will eat every day.
