Menu Plan–August 12

We’ve had some spectacular weather of late – a much needed reprieve from the 40+ days we spent above 80!  In fact, it’s incredible that 75 degrees feels chilly!  Ahhh… fall.  It’s coming.  That means apples, pies, sauce, pumpkin and so much more.  But, before I get too excited about fall, we’re still enjoying summer eats:

Zucchini, Ham, Eggs, and Cheese

This week is back to work for me.  I co-lead professional development for new faculty members at the university where I teach, so even though the students don’t come back for two weeks, we’re gearing up for the start of the academic year.  This means, back to menu planning for the school year schedule. 

To help me in planning – I’ve included not only the menu but also my “To Do” to make this menu function.

Leftover Garden Veggie Quiche
Burgers, corn on the cob, green beans, pickles & fresh fruit

    Your menu for the week sounds delicious!
