Lunch:leftovers from dinner or quesadillas
Dinner: bbq beef sandwiches, vegi's, potato salad

Thursday: pancakes (making at least 3 batches so that some can go into the freezer for next week)
Lunch: leftovers or soup and pb & j
Dinner: pack meeting for my boys so we are either eating there or eat out

Friday: cereal and strawberry & banana muffins (recipe coming soon)
Lunch: leftovers or hot dogs

Saturday: eggs, cinnamon rolls and fruit
Lunch: up in the air! My sister might be visiting OR my hubby might be home
Dinner: same as lunch!

Sunday; kids choice
Lunch: leftovers/ kid's choice
Dinner: garlic chicken, rice, rolls
Sweet Sunday: our day to have a homemade treat..this week we are making root beer cupcakes

Now for the GIVEAWAY! We all love giveaways right? Well when it comes to cooking, my freezer is my best friend! From whole meals, to baked goods, to produce...

One of the very best books to get you started is the Once A Month Cooking books. Barnes & Noble recently had the Once a Month Cooking and the Once a Month Cooking Family Favorites for $2.99 each! So I knew I should grab a set for me and a set to give away. They are such good books I wanted to share the wealth. So here's the deal...

For 1 entry: leave a comment (easy huh?)
For a 2nd entry: follow me on Facebook
For a 3rd Follow me on here
For a 4th entry: post about this giveaway on our blog/or as your Facebook status

Lots of chances to enter! If someone signs up because of you, you will get a 5th entry. Feeling generous aren't I?!

Good luck. Deadline ends on my birthay...Sept. 2nd. Also, I know it is annoying but please leave a seperate comment for each entry. Thanks!
