Sept 18-21 Weekly Menu and Master Shopping List

The weeks don’t seem to be getting any less busy.  And to tell you the truth, I am still trying to “get in the groove” with school, and after-school activities.  I am relying on the constant stream of alarms that go off on my phone during the day to make sure I get myself and everyone else to where they need to go… …And I still feel behind…

Once again, to make things easier this week, I shopped on Sunday and spent about 45 “active” minutes doing pre-prep.  I roasted the beets and the acorn squash, which took longer than 45 minutes, but I am not counting cook time as I can be, and was doing, other things.

I also washed and cut the chicken.  That should make dinner prep on Monday much easier.  Lastly, I hope to make the split pea soup on either Monday or Tuesday, because Thursday will be really crazy and this soup, like so many other soups, is better the next day after the flavors have marinated.
