Menu Plan Monday - August 17, 2009

First day of school tomorrow! I'm mostly ready which is as good as it's going to get. Jacob is super excited to begin Kindergarten, and that pretty much makes up for some of the groans coming from the Jr. High-ers.

We were able to spend the afternoon today at the Indianapolis Children's Museum and see the King Tut exhibit. Some of the younger children had never even been to the museum. We had a wonderful time, and it was truly awe inspiring to see things that are that old that we had seen pictures of in books. Caleb and Jacob came home and pulled out an Egyptian activity book and wrote everyone's name in hieroglyphics. I think we can count this as a school day!

As we start our new school year, the Stumpfs will be enjoying:

Monday - Polar Chicken, Rice

Tuesday (Lainie Teacher's Lounge)- Waffles, Fruit Syrup, Sausage

Wednesday - Pinto Beans, Cornbread, Mac 'n Cheese

Thursday (Grandma Mary Lou Arrives!)- Chili con Queso, Chips, Corn Casserole

Friday - Ham & Cheese Sandwiches, Fries

Saturday - Island Pork Delight, Rice

Find more meal plans at orgjunkie.com! If you've requested a recipe, I hope to post them later this week.
