Meal Plan Monday is back!

Here's the plan for the week - my husband and I sat down yesterday, talked through our schedule and freezer contents, then made a meal plan and a grocery list to go with it.  We're keeping it simple since we have something going on 3 of the 5 nights of the week, and it's the first week of a new schedule.  We're also using what we've got on hand, so here goes:

Monday: BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches, farmer's market sweet corn, watermelon, baked beans
Tuesday: Pizza, salad
Wednesday: Spaghetti with meat sauce, salad
Thursday: Grilled Chicken, steamed baby red potatoes, farmer's market green beans
Friday: leftovers or going out  - depends on the weekend schedule
Weekend: We've got Labor Day plans, so the menu is someone else's responsibility! Whoo-hoo!

For lunches, since we're starting school and work this week, we have a variety of things on hand:

"Main Event" options:
sandwich bread & lunch meat
wraps - tortilla, Laughing Cow cheese & thinly sliced turkey/ham/leftover chicken/veggies
leftover BBQ pork in a Thermos with a roll
leftover spaghetti in a Thermos
summer sausage, cheese & crackers
lettuce and veggies for salads

Sides:
various crunchy things (veggie chips, Goldfish, pretzels, tortilla chips w/salsa)
fruits, veggie sticks and dip
low-fat string cheese
"dessert" items - baking some cookies today
