    Week 640 Weekly Menu

    It’s menu time! Last weekend I planned my menu, went to the store, and, despite a week filled with back to school nights, sports and more, I still cooked every night. Being prepared meant cooking was actually easier and faster than going out. I am so grateful for this blog to keep me planning each week because otherwise I totally would not be! As always, thank you for sharing menus every week. They are incredibly helpful!

    MONDAY:
    – Chicken Pasta Salad with an Asian Twist (I’m planning to do a separate post about gluten-free pastas, but I’ll do a quick plug for Tinkyada rice pasta here because it will be perfect for this recipe)

    TUESDAY:
    – Roasted Vegetable Scrambles
