Marin Mama’s Weekly Dinner Menu for September 3rd

Marin Mama's weekly dinner menu - September 3rd

This menu is a day late, but it’s Labor Day weekend and therefore not your typical week, so I’m counting today as Sunday.  I’m proud to say that I stuck last week’s weekly menu, and it really made my life easier.  I spent way less time at the grocery store, and I seriously think I gained an extra hour each day because I was not looking through cookbooks, blogs or magazines fretting about what to cook for dinner.  I honestly suggest to you all to get a weekly menu in place, as it will make your life easier.

This is the week where all my kids’ activities begin to ramp up, so goodbye to ease and relaxation, and hello craziness.  This week’s menu is pretty boring, as were having a bunch of two-night meals.  I need to get in the groove of the new schedule and these meals below are all make-ahead meals, and ones I don’t have to fuss with.

Thursday is going to be my crazy night till November.  I may even omit cooking for this day, as both kids have activities back to back, and they are both going to be eating dinner at two different times.  Major chaos.  I will attempt to have something easy that I can either heat up quickly for them, or I may just make it a sandwich or burrito night.

This is an easy two-nighter dinner for us, and mangos are so good right now.

I’m using Dave’s gourmet pasta sauce here, not homemade marina this week, as sometimes you have to cut the corners when life gets busy.

    1. Hi Mary! I often do the same thing and change my mind at the last minute. I am trying to get better organized this fall and planning my menu in advance has really helped me.

      Thanks for the sweet compliment regarding the photos. Its fun playing around with the camera when I have time.
