Our Weekly Meal Plan

It’s Fall…but it’s hot. Real hot. My mind says chili, my body says ice chips. If tend to ignore my body come late September and just wear, eat and do what my mind says is right. Wear the sweater! Make the beef stew!  Pick the pumpkins! The weather will catch up eventually, right? Fall also means school and activities are in full swing so I make a maximum of four dinners a week. We eat leftovers the other days and O and I usually go out for dinner on Fridays. Here is what our dinners will look like this week as we leave September and head into October.

Cozy Oatmeal Updates for Autumn

My kids have oatmeal for breakfast at least twice a week. We buy an enormous bag of Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats from Costco and they demolish that thing. Since O and I rarely eat oats anymore I’m able to make two cups of it and have leftovers to doctor up a few mornings later which has been a game changer in our house! My kids are garbage disposals to some extent so they aren’t weird about leftovers but if yours are, reheating this and rehydrating it with your milk of choice will have them convinced it’s straight off the stove.
