Menu Plan {August 11th-17th}

baked beans

School has started here which means I am finally should be getting back into a more normal routine. And although it is back to school time, it is still very hot. It is August after all. So, this means quick and easy meals that don’t heat up the house.

Back to school also means busy mornings, so I am working on several new breakfast recipes that I hope to share soon.

Here is the plan.

  1. Mmmm, yummy! You just made me hungry. 😉

    I just can’t wrap my head around the concept of all these schools starting so early. Around here, they don’t start until after Labor Day. I feel like there’s still so much left of the summer!

  2. Do you adjust the cooking time when making baked oatmeal in muffin tins?

    These all sound so good! My menus will need to be tight budget wise for the next few months. Perhaps I can make these fit, oh, I hope so. yum!

    • I love frugal recipes and many of my recipes call for everyday basic ingredients, so I hope you can find some that work for you. Have a great week!
