Menu Plan with Lunch box recipes & linky

(recipe below from Crystal & Co)

This week all 3 of my girls will be going back to school. This will be the first time in 7 years that no one will be home! It is going to be a strange few weeks around here for me to adjust. We have homeschooled for 6 years (before that they all went to private school) the oldest two are finishing up high school this year taking full time college classes which they also did last year. The youngest is starting high school and wanted to go to a local private high school. So here is to a good year for all of our kids!

I've included top clicked links from the past menu linky as promised. So don't forget to link up any recipe or your menu plan and you might get featured! Don't forget to check the printable coupons before you go shopping! 

*My 9th grader has pinned quite a few Lunch Box recipes to her pinterest page so we will be trying out new things and adding to the menu. I've already pinned some to my Back-To-School Board. Come check it out. We do have Push Pop Lunch Snack ideas (above) for you to check out.

Monday- Crock Pot Chicken(make extra for left overs and lunch meat), Baked Beans, Salad and Smore Brownies
Tuesday-use leftover planned chicken for Crystal's Easy Recipe: Nachos from leftover Chicken and Sandwich Sushi using left over chicken for Em's lunch.

Wednesday-Happy 40th Birthday to hubby. He wants my Rockin' Ribs, slaw, Oooey Gooey onion bread, Crock Pot Cheesy Hash browns (recipe coming soon but check out Moms's Cheesy Hash browns for another recipe and German Chocolate Cake. 
Thursday-Pork Carnitas with Green Sauce from blogger My Turn, Pico de Gallo, Happy Margaritas or Sangria kid-friendly recipe, Fried Ice Cream (picture and recipe coming next week)

Friday- Pizza Night is back! I hope to do this every Friday whenever it fits into our weekly plan. I want to try different combinations, doughs, etc. My Honey Pizza Crust is awesome but I'm ready to try a healthier crust and a deep dish crust.

Saturday & Sunday- Left overs since we had pork twice (I do freeze leftover meat to be used for easy meals) and food prep for next week!

    Your menu for the week sounds delicious!
