Menu Plan–September 1

Welcome to September and Labor Day Weekend! This last week was really energizing and helped me get ready for the start of the school year. 

I had the chance to lead some faculty professional development that focused on using groups in the classroom, suggested something new for our freshman welcome (which turned out to be a huge success) and got a technology tour of our new SCALE-UP classroom!

Although it was tiring, and busy, I am ready for the start of another school year after last week.  Tuesday marks the beginning of year 4.  I can’t believe I’ve been a college professor that long already!

We tried a few new meals last week, and they were delicious.  The crockpot chicken taco bowls were tasty, but the desserts from last week (above photos) were even better: Mini Doughnut Ice Cream and Cheesecake Stuffed Chocolate Chip Bars.   

Leftovers Crockpot Breakfast Casserole, OJ and fresh berries
Grilling – Pork Burgers with Hamburger Buns, Sautéed Mushrooms & Onions, Grilled Vegetables, Corn, Sweet Pickles & Dill Pickles, Cherry Pie {new} and Vanilla Ice Cream
