Menu Monday....on Tuesday ;)

Its Menu Monday time.....on Tuesday!!  I've got to keep ya guessing you know!  Ha!  In all reality life is crazy and I just got around to making a menu super late last night and I'm going grocery shopping today!  Better late than never right?!
First day of school here in our home was yesterday and it was a challenging day but I'm excited to work through the kinks and settle into the new curriculum we're using and make it work for us!!  A 7th & 3rd grader ~ I know I know ~ I don't look old enough to have a 7th grader!!  ;)  Totally kidding but it really does blow.my.mind that they are growing up SO fast!
Here's what will fuel our crazy this week.....
*Tuesday ~ Baked Lemon Poppyseed Chicken over Spinach w/ Strawberries
(have you tried this yet?!  if not then go to the store, buy the groceries & MAKE IT!  Quick....before summer is over!!!)
*Wednesday ~ Crockpot Asian Glazed Chicken over Rice w/ Broccoli
*Thursday ~ Breakfast for Dinner
*Friday ~ Crockpot Beef Stroganoff over Pasta w/ Asparagus
(see recipe below!)
*Saturday ~ Fajitas
*Sunday ~ Crockpot Potato Soup
I'm hungry just thinking about some of these and I'm excited to try the Asian Glazed Chicken for the first time!!  Here is the recipe for the Beef Stroganoff....it's super simple but sooo flavorful!
Crockpot Beef Stroganoff
2 - 3lbs beef stew meat
1 can cream of mushroom
1 envelope beefy onion soup mix
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce (or more!)
1 C sour cream
Mix everything except sour cream in crockpot.  Cook on low 8 - 10 hours (or high for 6 - 8) until meat is very tender.  Do not open lid for at least the first few hours!  About 30-45 minutes before serving, mix in sour cream, & heat through.
Serve over pasta and Enjoy!!
**A lot of people like mushrooms in this....I'm not a fan of mushrooms, but by all means if you like them then throw those in too!!**
Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!!
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

Menu Monday ~ I'm back!!!

Well.  That was a ridiculously long and unexpected blog break but I'm back!!  I can't believe summer is coming to an end (even if the weather doesn't agree!) and that kiddos are all headed back to school.  The schools in our area start back today but I won't be starting with the boys quite yet.  I will, however, be getting us back into a routine this week so that we'll be ready to start!
Step 1 in getting back in the swing of things?!  Actually plan a menu and do real grocery shopping!!  Here's what will be fueling our week of summer recovery.....
Monday ~ Tacos
Tuesday ~ Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken w/ Jasmine Rice & Peas
Wednesday ~ Maple Walnut Chicken w/ Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Friday ~ Grilled Cheese Sandwiches & Veggie Soup (daddy will be out for the evening so I'm keeping it super simple!!)
Saturday ~ We'll be grilling at a friends party and I'm making Asian Chicken Salad!!
Sunday ~ Skillet Sausage, Rice Pilaf, & Asparagus
There is so much to blog about from the summer but our lives are about to be turned upside down (in a hard but not necessarily bad way) so I'm sure I won't get to share about all of it, but I'm going to try to back track a little over the next couple weeks and blog some of it!  Hope everyone has enjoyed the summer!!  And if you're anything like me, you are ready to welcome fall with open arms! ;)

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
