Menu for week of 8/27 - 9/2

The weather is wonky, but at least the heat has let up some.  Still need more rain, though.  Pretty easy meals again-  what's new, right?  Anyhoo, here's what our menu is looking like this week.

Beef & broccoli stir fry served over rice - this was a new to me recipe- we found it very salty, would use low sodium soy sauce next time and also marinate the beef first or use a better cut, but overall it was delicious.

Easy baked tilapia w/veggies; couscous

Penne pasta w/marinara sauce; bread

Meatballs, peppers & onions served over rice

Awesome buffalo chicken pizza; salad w/choice of dressing; cheesy breadsticks

Breakfast for dinner: bacon, eggs made to order; toasted whole grain bread; fresh fruit

Angel hair pasta w/roasted veggies
