1st Day Pics & Menu Plan Monday

Today was Wyatt's first day of school. So over the weekend, I used this recipe to make some plum jam to give his teacher as a little "Back To School" appreciation gift. Also because I had a ton of plums from our CSA box! It was really easy and turned out so yummy. I made a tag to tie on the jar that I thought was funny and cute.

I took pictures of the kids in front of our gate last year on their first day of school. So I guess it's tradition now! It's so crazy (and fun) to see how much they have grown in one year. Wyatt has changed the most to me - with his big boy haircut and thinning out. Molly is next - she lost some of her "baby face" this past year and insists on blow drying her own hair every morning cause she likes it loooonnnng!! Megan, physically looks pretty much the same. But I think in her eyes, there is an air of confidence that comes with being comfortable at school as a 2nd grader. 

Now that we are back in the swing of the organized chaos that is Fall, I must menu plan to make it all work. Matt and I both have meetings this week, as well as softball, the girls' Back To School Night and football. Therefore, I'm only planning three meals. The other nights we'll manage with leftovers or take out!

MondayCilantro lime chicken with roasted broccoli and green salad
Tuesday - meetings (which means babysitter = mac & cheese & fruit!)
Wednesday - Scrambled eggs, strawberry scones and bacon
ThursdayTurkey taco salad and quesadillas before Back To School
Friday - Football. Megan & Molly get to cheer at the game!

Looking forward to this busy, but fun filled week!
