Fall Ball and the end of September as we know it

Last week was a pretty good week as far as following the menu goes. On Friday, we ended up having loaded baked potatoes and saved the tenderloin for Saturday. It will reappear on this week's menu also, as leftovers! Speaking of this week, it won't be glamorous, but it'll get the job done.

Sunday~ Chicken with mushroom gravy in the crock pot, served over egg noodles, with field peas from the garden
Monday~ Ball game @ 5:30. Fast snack before the game. Leftovers later.
Tuesday~ Breakfast for dinner
Wednesday~ Tacos
Thursday ~ Ball game @ 5:30. Snack before, dinner later.
Friday~ Roast cooked in the crock pot with potatoes, mushrooms, onions and assorted veggies. Serve with rice.
Saturday~ To be decided/announced/etc.

September Menu #3... and Fall Ball

We are playing Fall Baseball this year.
The last time we played Fall Baseball, ds#3 wasn't even a twinkle in his daddy's eye.
Son #1 was 10.
That would be.... oh.... 15 years ago.

So here we go again- the circle of life and all that stuff!!
And our menu:
Sunday~ Tomato soup & grilled cheese sandwiches
Monday~ Mom has a meeting after school and ds#3 has a ball game at 7:15. We're looking at a Fend For YourSelf night (FFYS).
Tuesday~ Sticky Chicken (this works great with bone-in, skin-on breasts cooked in the crock pot; I just remove the skin and bones when it's time to serve), mashed potatoes, broccoli
Wednesday~ Spaghetti sauce in the crock pot, boil noodles when I get home. Fast & easy spaghetti.
Thursday~ Snack before a 5:30 ball game, then mom goes to Open House at 6:30. Leftovers when we all get home.
Friday~ Beef tenderloin, baked potatoes, green salad.
Saturday~ TBA. Expecting some guests this weekend, so we'll leave it open for the possibilities.

September's here.... but where is Fall??

It's still blazing hot here so even though the calendar says it should be fall, it still feels like the dead of summer!

We've begun "Fall Ball" so we'll have practices and games sprinkled in our schedule once again. Can I just say that I love my crockpot for helping me survive those crazy days??

Sunday~ Dutch baby, grits, bacon
Monday~ Aussie chicken, rice, sauteed spinach
Tuesday~ Lasagna (from the freezer), tossed salad, garlic bread
Wednesday~ Soup & Sandwiches
Thursday~ Open House at school. Out to eat.
Friday~ Cashew chicken, rice, mandarin oranges, broccoli
Saturday~ I have no idea yet! :)
