Menu Plan Monday ~ Sept 29th + Giveaway


Fall is upon us and so I thought we needed a new fall banner.  I love the colors of fall so much and I’m thinking fall may be becoming my new favorite season.

So I love me a giveaway but as much as I love giveaways, I also love new products!  Today we are combining both of those concepts and giving away a fairly new product on the market that is all about educating and empowering your kids to eat healthy.  SuperNoots was created by two moms looking for a way to instill healthy eating habits into their kids in a fun and encouraging way.  From what I can tell it not only looks fun but easy to use as well.  Lori is giving away today, to one Menu Plan Monday participant, a SuperNoots Starter Pack valued at $34.95!

It comes complete with a Food Chart, 16 Magnets, 1 Shopping List, 1 Snack Pack, Parent’s Guide and ribbon for hanging.  One winner will be chosen, not from the comments, but from the list of participants off of today’s Menu Plan Monday Mr. Linky list below.  In other words to be eligible all you need to do is post your weekly menu on your blog and link up that specific post into the Mr. Linky here as usual by Tuesday, Sept 30th at 6:00 pm PST.  Thanks Lori!

Last week I made the delicious Onion Strings from Pioneer Woman, oh my word were they good.  Has anyone else tried these?  Not so healthy but hey what’s a little treat now and then although I’m pretty sure I gain weight just looking at all the yummy food pictures on her site 🙂

Here is what we’ll be eating this week in our house:

Monday: Sunny BLT Sandwiches

Tuesday: Chicken Caesar Pitas

Wednesday: Happy 9th Birthday to my son!  His favorite for dinner, hamburgers and french fries served with Gluten Free White Cake for dessert.

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Personal Pepperoni Pizzas

Saturday: Savory Spaghetti Sauce

Sunday: If you can find it you can eat it day!

    Laura, this sounds like a great idea! My older kids are getting pretty big but my little guy could probably use so nutritional nudges!

    I always fix my kid’s favorite meals on their birthdays, too. Sometimes, they are the only one who enjoys their meals – but that’s what birthdays are for, right?

    It’s just me and my hubby E at home, which makes meal planning both a little easier and a little harder than if we had kids to feed – hopefully, we’ll be able to stay on track this week!

    The new banner is great. We’ve got burgers on our menu this week also – and cake to celebrate our son being home on leave. Adjusting to life in the military for our boys is not easy! But we will savor the time together. Speaking of savoring, your week looks yummy and comforting. Thanks for hosting, as always!

    sounds like a yummy week!! I also wanted to say I LOVE your blog and it has inspired me so much. When you’re the mom of 2 soon to be 3 all under the age of 3 and the husband is always deployed for months at a time, being super organized keeps you sane….or at least its keeping me sane =)

    Interesting take on BLT’s. I wonder how those would turn out. Kind of makes me think of that sandwich Adam Sandler makes on the movie Spanglish.

  58. 61
    Lisa says

    I’m new to your site and wish I had the time to put together a menu. I haven’t done one in a while but I used to put together an entire month plan. That worked great for me b/c if I had a list of 30 meals I planned for the month and could swap meals from day to day if I wanted.

  59. 62
    Tammy says

    Wow – this is great.

    Aunt Nonnie says

    The ultimate organizer for a years worth of menus. Breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. All in one place. By the month, 3 daily menus, recipes for the month (right there), shopping lists that include all of the incidentals for each of the menus. It took Aunt Nonnie three years to assemble and coordinate all the information. Talk about organizing!
