Meal Plan and Grocery List 8/23-8/29

Hello friends! I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend. My family was finally home for the WHOLE weekend together! It's been at least a month since this phenomenon has occurred. To celebrate, we put in our last appearance at the neighborhood pool, had dinner with friends, organized, purchased school supplies, and packed my daughter's back pack. On Tuesday she heads off to her first day of kindergarten! Exciting stuff!

This week's meal plan is almost completely made up of meals I have prepared before. Good old tried and true recipes for a back to school week. Most of the meals come together pretty quickly. The exception is Monday's meal, Oven Barbecued Chicken. It's a bit time consuming, but you can make the barbecue sauce ahead and store it in the fridge until you're ready to use it, speeding preparation up considerably.

Just click on the links below to get the recipes.
