I have a couple of Halloween-inspired meals planned this week. Today is our Trick or Treat day and I am hoping my daughter scores a few Baby Ruth bars for me! Mmmmm.
Monday – Pumpkin Pancakes and Sausage… See linked recipe and read the comments section if you are looking for advice on taking this recipe Gluten-Free! Thanks to reader ‘Jen’!
Tuesday – SCARY Meal… Mummy Dogs (see Pinterest for inspiration), Tombstones (chips or waffle fries) and blood in goblet (cranberry juice).
Wednesday – Kid haircut night, dining out
Thursday – Tuna Salad, Deviled Eggs, Arugula Salad
Friday – Hummus Soup and Naan

Happy Monday! I wanted to give you an update on the Chicken and Pumpkin soup from last week’s menu plan. Delicious! It will definitely will go into the dinner rotation. It was super easy because I already had chicken cooked in the freezer. It has a silky texture like a butternut squash soup but without the sweetness. Watch out on the chipotles in adobo though. They can be super hot! Next time I will just use chipotle powder.
Monday – Jamie Oliver’s Chicken Fajitas
Tuesday – Hamburgers on the grill. It’s going to be 80 degrees F and sunny!
Wednesday – Dine out
Thursday – Daughter requests Sheryl Crow’s Warm Hummus Soup
Friday – Spaghetti and home-made garlic bread

Last week of August, whew! I am sad for the end of summer break but I am looking forward to the tastes of fall. It’s going to be hot in the midwest this week, so I’m keeping the meals on the cool side.
Monday – Chicken and Bow-Tie Pasta Salad from Cooking Light. This is a recipe I have made many times. Chock full of grapes, walnuts, chives and a citrus dressing. Great with leftover grilled chicken.
Tuesday – Sheryl Crow’s Warm Hummus Soup – I never bother with the pesto or the croutons. The coriander is a must though! Super easy. This is pretty much a no-cook recipe. Everything goes in the blender and then you just gently warm it. Serve with naan.
Wednesday – Tuna Salad, french bread, summer fruit.
Thursday – Husband has his fantasy football draft. When the cat’s away, the mice go eat with Grandma!
Friday – Keeping it easy with leftovers/grilled cheese etc.

This week’s menu uses very little meat. I will use 2 chicken breasts divided between the Monday and Tuesday menu items.
Monday – Jamie Oliver’s Fajitas – a family favorite I serve with black beans
Tuesday – Sesame Peanut Noodles from the book Cook Yourself Thin: Skinny Meals You Can Make in Minutes (Voice) – I serve them warm, not cold. I am able to re-use some of the same ingredients as the fajitas. I add lots of extra veg!
Wednesday – Soup night! Daughter requests Sheryl Crow’s Warm Hummus Soup – I never bother with the pesto or the croutons. The coriander is a must though! Super easy.
Thursday – Baked Ziti (vegetarian)
Friday – Night off for me – we will dine out somewhere budget-friendly
