Menu Plan Monday

As I stated, things went a tad haywire this past week, so we didn't have everything that we were planning to. Let's hope for better this week! :)

Tonight we're having Italian Chicken Pasta. I've got it chilling in the fridge right now.
This week we also plan on having:
Tacos (using ground turkey that I got buy one, get one free!)
Pancakes or eggs
Unfried Chicken Legs
Tuna Casserole
Chicken Pot Pie
As usual, we'll also eat at my parents' house one evening.

School starts back here tomorrow. My daughter wakes up around 8, but has to be at school at 9. It's a mad rush to get her up, dressed, fed, and to school within an hour's time. I like to make big batches of mini-muffins and freeze them in snack bags (I can get 4-5 in a bag), and pull them out the night before to thaw out in time for breakfast. I also read somewhere recently (I can't remember where, sorry to whomever blogged it!), that some like to prep their pancake batter the night before, then just pour it out in the morning. I've tried doing overnight breakfast in my slow cooker, but it just about always burns, unfortunately. Do you have any other quick ideas for breakfast on the go?

Once again... is crazy. My Mom's aunt passed, and my very close friend had a death in her family. I'm hoping to get up a menu plan anyway tomorrow. Happy Labor Day weekend! Stay safe!
