Weekly Meal Plan 38

Everyone is talking about back to school and I am close to a panic attack.

At the stores parents are already loading up on supplies and I can hardly watch.

I am so not ready for this!

This is the first summer I have not wanted it to end- back to school is less than a month away and we are still on the fence about what to do this school year. We are heavily considering homeschool for many reasons, but mostly pertaining to Anthony’s dyslexia.

I am really struggling inside. One day I have my mind made up and I know we will homeschool. Then by the next day I am terrified of failing him or letting him down. I am really a mess, hua?

With that said, here is what we’re eating this week. Hey, I can easily choose when it comes to food! :-)

Homemade Gourmet Garlic Lemon Dijon Chicken– grilled and served over salad. Served with fruit kabobs.

BLT’s and Chips– how stinkin’ simple is that?

Pizza Wheels– yum! Served with fruit.

Grilled Mustard Salmon– this was so good the last time we had it! I can not wait to have it again. I will make grilled asparagus with it. Yum!

Leftover Buffet– use ’em up!

Baked Chicken Strips

Corn Dogs

Hard boiled eggs and turkey slices


Lunch with friends

For sides we have grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe and mandarin orange cups. We also have celery and peanut butter, carrots,  as well as yogurt. 

Bagels and cream cheese
Waffles and peanut butter
Cold cereal
Blueberry pancakes
Cheese eggs and fruit

Apple sauce and string cheese
Cereal bars and yogurt
Wheat Thins and cream cheese

Have you heard of the Texas musician Sara Hickman? We love her music. I am giving away one of copy of the DVD Big Bird, Little Bird. It is full of sweet lullaby music. My kids love it and I know yours will too!

    I absolutely love the pizza wheel idea! And what a cute way to take pizza to a potluck!

    We homeschooled for 3 years. It was scary and overwhelming but totally worth it. We're actually doing the public school thing this year and I'm a nervous wreck!

    The salmon is so stinkin' awesome! We've made it before and I love it. The flavors mesh so well!

    And the pizza wheels rock!

    Thanks for reading guys!

    Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks! Way to plan. Thanks so much for sharing your menu. I totally understand about the Summer not ending. We homeschool and we push the beginning of school as far away as possible. Fortunately, most homeschool co-ops start late in September, and this year my daughter will be at the community college for her last two years of highschool, and they start late in September as well. Too bad I still have to work on getting books through the summer. Good luck with your decision. Remember, you only fail your child if you leave him on his own. No matter where you educate him, as long as you are with him, he will do just fine.

    I'd encourage you to give homeschooling a try, for the flexibility and ability to meet your son's needs in a positive way. I was just going through old school papers today for my oldest (anxiety and severe dysgraphia) and it was a painful reminder of how much school damaged his self esteem, and blunted his natural gifts and curiosity. We finally pulled him out after ninth grade, and just worked on math skills and composition, so that he could pass his high school proficiency. If I had a do-over…. we'd just keep him at home all the way, and solved a lot of problems. Take care, Kerry kerrydi@pacbell.net
