If weeks had theme songs, I’m thinking Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall would be appropriate for this one.

El husbando and our two youngest start school on Tuesday, with our favorite daughter starting her senior year. Our favorite 19-year-old started his sophomore year of college a couple of weeks ago.

That said, things should be pretty hairy at la chica’s household as summer schedules end and the school year begins. Lots of good things come from the new schedule, but lunchbox-packing and sleepy-child-waking are not on that list.

Whether you’re getting your favorite children ready to go back to school or busy with work or your training schedule, here’s a menu to make sure that you at least get something good to eat to end your weekdays. If you’re new, here’s how I plan our meals. Just remember to double the recipes if you want left-overs for lunches or your familia is gigantic like ours.

  • Shredded beef hoagies, chips, corn on the cob
  • Hamburgers, baked fries, corn
  • Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn-bread muffins (Jiffy mix), green beans
  • Cilantro lime chicken, white rice
  • Panini, chips

What’s going on for you this week? Have you found any yummy recipes to share?

My name is Gisgie. It's pronounced geese (like the birds) and gee (like the letter). Now that we've met, I'm glad you're here. I'm an injury-prone runner who manages to find reasons to keep coming back to the road despite ongoing challenges. Most recently, I've struggled with piriformis syndrome. I'm currently winning. Most days.
