Meal Plan for August 16-22

I've been slacking off in the meal plan posting. It's been a crazy, hectic summer. Trips to my parent's, the zoo, visitors at our house, preparing for baby and the heat... omg the heat! But I realized I need to get back in the habit for two reasons, 1. Juniour is going to through us off course for a while so until we get our family routine re-established I need to be organized wherever I can be; and 2. my oldest starts school in the fall and I want to plan some great lunch and dinner (leftovers for lunch!) ideas ahead of time and try them out to see what she'll eat!

Here is this week's plan. It's pretty basic, my husband has the next 10 days off and in that time we need to paint the nursery, paint the furniture we bought for my youngest daughter's room, move furniture into the nursery, and get ready with little things like packing the hospital bag and whatnot. I needed a week where dinner was a no-brainer.
