Weekly Menu

This week is very hectic for us! I started back to school with teacher workdays & Open House. Grant has started a Fall Ball League with his baseball team, so the easier dinner plans are the HAPPIER this wife will be! :) 

Also, we're planning Aubrey's 7th birthday party this Saturday. It's only a family dinner, but no party is too small. :) of course, she wanted a Gamecock theme! We've trained her well. ;) Just in time for the season to start. I will post pictures of decorations and the party! Great ideas to use for a Game day Party or tailgating! 

Here's our menu plan for the week. Let me know if you have any questions. They are so easy I feel like they don't need much description. 

Monday: Sausage & Veggie Grill

1lb. Of Kielbasa Sausage (we use the turkey)
1 green pepper cut into slices 
1 onion cut into slices
1 large or 2 small zucchini cut into slices
2 squash cut into slices
3 cups of cubed potatoes
Salt & pepper

Combine all ingredients in foil. Cover it on top with foil as well. Throw on the grill on medium heat for 30 minutes or bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. EASY! 

Tuesday: Zuchhini, Black Bean, Rice Casserole

This is a NEW favorite in the Kirkendohl household. Do your prep the night before & it's so simple (even the hubby can cook it.) 

Wednesday: French Loaf Pizza

1 French Loaf
2 cups of Marinara Sauce (3/4 jar)
Shredded Mozzerela Cheese
Toppings: veggies, pepperoni, etc.
Garlic & Italian Seasoning

Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. 
Thursday: Quesadillas, Black Beans & Rice

2 cups Shredded Cheese
Inside ingredients: onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, shrimp,shredded chicken. 
(I like veggie ones, so I keep frozen grilled chicken strips on hand for the hubby's.)
Can of Black Beans
2 cups of rice
Salt & Pepper

Friday: Grilled Chicken, Macaroni & Cheese, Lima Beans

4 chicken breast
Blackened seasoning
Box of Macaroni & Cheese ( we use whole wheat)
1/2 lb. of fresh Lima beans

Coat the chicken with the blackened seasoning. Grill on medium for about 45 minutes. Cook macaroni accordingly, and steam the Lima beans with a dash of salt & pepper. 

I hope everyone has a great start to their school year! Can't believe summer has come & gone! Here's to Fall!!
