Menu with what's on sale Sept. 30- Oct. 6

We've have been hot for so long here in Arizona that now that it's cooling off it is glorious. And by cooling off I mean down to the chilly mid 90's. But we'll take it. So if you are somewhere other than "here" and have felt that my menus haven't reflected the crisp coolness of fall, you're right. I'm still of the mindset that a cold salad is what I want for dinner some nights. Or light, like just a sandwich or wrap or quesadilla. Not too creative a menu for you this week. If you're in need of other ideas, the side bar holds lots of blogs and sites that offer menu ideas.


1-Pancakes, syrup, apple juice
3-Cold cereal, milk

1-PB&J sandwich, orange segments, granola bar

1-Hamburger Stroganoff over egg noodles, steamed carrots

2-Progresso soup, french bread

3-Grilled Chicken kebob Salad see Scroll down and click onto Grilled Chicken Kebob Salad for a quick video. If it were me, I would probably partially cook the sausages first before grilling them. If you don't use all of the sausages or have leftovers, put them in the Spaghetti sauce for idea #4 if you wish.

4-Spaghetti, sauce and garlic toast

5-Fish sticks, yams, steamed broccoli. Cake for dessert

6-Grilled cheese sandwich, tomato soup, carrot sticks

7-Pizza, leftover vegetables
