Menu Plan Monday



This week is “Family Favorites” week at Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday.  I’m including some of our family’s tried-and-true favorites: Broccoli Salad, Asian Turkey Wraps using my homemade Peanut Sauce and Brown Rice, Chai Muffins, Homemade Breakfast Sausage, Smoothies, and Carrot Apple Salad.  (Links are all provided below.)  We picked up some gorgeous fall produce at the Farmer’s Market today, which I am excited to incorporate into our meals (eggplant, squash, apples).  

There is also an abundance of melon due to an overzealous toddler at the market.  (I was searching for a small melon; Gen found the biggest melon and accidently dropped it on the ground.  As it broke in half, revealing its delicious yellow fruit, we quickly assured the farmer that we would be purchasing that particular melon!)  

Calvin & I are also planning our first “getaway” alone- without a little one!  We wanted to make use of our backpacks one more time this fall, and to spend some much needed resting time together.  I’ll pack some easy camping food for us, and leave some easy food for Gen & friend for the weekend.
