Menu Plan Monday - August 30, 2010

We're getting excited about the low numbers on the Disney Countdown! Only 11 schooldays left.

Our dinner for Thursday, Layer Supper, is quite the crowd pleaser around here. And it scores double points for being filling, economical, and super-easy! Cook up some brown rice, pinto beans (try our Pinto Bean Mix) and peas. Make up a simple cheese sauce, use nacho cheese, or even a handful of shredded. Layer each plate with beans, peas, rice and cheese (most of mine opt for peas on the side). Talk about an all-in-one dish!

Monday  - Broccoli Cheese Chicken

Tuesday - Taco Ring

Wednesday (AWANA)- Frozen Pizza, Boxed Mac 'n Cheese

Thursday - Layer Supper

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday (My Birthday) - Out to Dinner!!
