Menu Plan for Week of September 7, 2014:

Sunday - Homemade Waffles, Scrambled Eggs and Bacon
We are going to enjoy breakfast for dinner on Sunday evening. We haven't gotten the waffle maker out in a long time! 

Monday - Easy Baked Ravioli with Garlic Bread, recipe HERE
This is a new recipe I want to try, because it is SO easy! I will probably use cheese ravioli when making this recipe.

Tuesday - White Bean Soup with Garlic Croutons, recipe HERE
An easy recipe on Friday sounds GREAT to me... when Amber from Binkertation posted this fall bean soup with garlic croutons, I KNEW I had to make it... and SOON.

Wednesday - Papa Murphy's
Nathan has a cross country meet, so when we get done I'll have a delicious Papa Murphy's take and bake pizza ready for dinner! Just pop it in the oven and you have dinner!

Thursday - On Your Own
Brian and I are going to enjoy crepes for breakfast, then having a light lunch at a winery while the kiddos are in school. I am sure we will be stuffed full, even by dinner time... SO, I am just going to say dinner is 'On Your Own' tonight... :)

Friday French Bread Taco Pizza, recipe HERE
This is a pretty new recipe that Samantha just shared at Five Heart Home. I love regular french bread pizzas, but a french bread taco pizza? I'm in!! I don't like black olives, but Brian does. I'll put some on Brian's pizza out of love. :)

Saturday - Eat Out

Dessert - Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
We are going apple picking and I am going to be trying out some apple recipes in the next few weeks!
