Menu Plan 9/3-9/9

I hope everyone had a happy Labor Day! We took the boys to a Cubs game at Wrigley and while they were less than thrilled it was still a fun time and something very different than our usual weekend.

Yesterday we spent our Labor Day morning doing work around the house. Joe finished staining our fence while I organized kids clothes and filled a box of giveaway stuff for charity. After our morning of work we went on a family bike ride and then to the pool and ended the weekend by roasting marshmallows for smores.

I feel like I'm in a menu rut but not willing to spend the time and creative energy to get out. It also usually backfires when I try new and interesting recipes as my little critics are so particular. Joe & I usually like the variety of trying new things but the kids do not.

I'm sticking with some favorites this week in the hope that everyone is happy with dinner.

Weekly Menu Plan 9/3-9/9
Monday: Crockpot chicken, potatoes & carrots
Tuesday:  Cedar plank salmon, brown rice, steamed broccoli
Wednesday: Orange chicken, steamed green beans, quinoa
Thursday: Pasta with homemade marinara, salad, whole wheat bread
Friday: Tacos with 1/2 cup pureed lentils mixed in
Saturday: Homemade Pizza
Sunday: Burgers & leftovers

You can find lots more menus at Menu Plan Monday at I'm An Organizing Junkie.
Is anyone else in a dinnertime rut?
