Pinning and Planning Our Dinner Menu – Week of August 24

PinningPlanning RunDMT Pinning and Planning   Week of August 16 {Dinner Menu}We survived the first week of school. Yay me!  Did your kids go back yet? Did you survive too?

I wish our school started after Labor Day, like other parts of the country. Labor Day symbolizes the end of summer and it just makes sense to start school after that date. Of course starting later would mean wrapping up the school later and that’s not good either. I like closing the school year just in time for Memorial Day, the holiday that symbolizes the start of summer. Since students, teachers and parents can’t have longer summer break, it’s no wonder why the school calendar is designed the way it is. Maybe I just like long breaks and summer?

Speaking of Labor Day, have you made your plans yet for Labor Day? If you need some Labor Day entertaining and cookout suggestions, the Sunday Supper Movement has some tasty twist on the typical Labor Day fare.  As my contribution to the Sunday Supper recipe list, I shared a Mango Riesling Coulis. Served over vanilla frozen yogurt, ice cream or an icebox cheesecake it’s cool, refreshing treat on a hot summer day.

We haven’t made any plans for Labor Day but at least I know what’s on the dinner menu for the week.

Sunday – Mojo Marinated Butterflied Grilled Chicken with Zucchini and Tomato Orzo

Meatless Monday – Grilled Vegetable and Cheese Paninis

Tuesday – Grilled Fish Tacos with Summer Salsa

Wednesday – Brinner (Breakfast for Dinner) – Vegetable, Egg and Potato Skillets

Thursday – Lightened Tilapia Picatta over Pasta

Friday – Pizza

What are your Labor Day plans? What interesting recipes are you pinning and planning? What’s on your dinner menu this week?

    We start after Labor day- that’s how it’s been everywhere I’ve lived so it’s hard for me to imagine going back in August… but you’re right, then you’re stuck in school longer into the summer. Can’t win!

    So glad the first week of school is over. Now let’s see how we do this week! As for Labor Day weekend, we’ll be heading back to Boca so I’m looking forward to trying out some new places I didn’t get to a few weeks ago.

    We’re back to school and survived our first week! wooHoo!!

    Labor Day plans…our community always hosts a Labor Day pool party and my gym always hosts a Hero WOD in the morning, so typically I go and workout in the morning, and then spend the afternoon in the pool :)

    I love fish tacos and will have to pin your recipe! Yum!
