Lunch Group

I love where I work. It is a great high school with fantastic students and parents and wonderful co-workers. But, even with all that greatness, things can get a little stressed, especially with recent budget cuts and furlough days. Three of us have found a way to help deal with some of the day to day stresses of teaching high school.

Each Thursday we take turns making lunch for each other. The only requirement is it can't make you crazy to do it. If it is a crazy week for you, picking up deli sandwiches, ordering pizza or a run through the Zaxby's drive through are OK. It is all about commraderie and a little bit or relaxation at work.

We are an easy group to cook for as we will eat almost anything. No picky eaters allowed in our lunch group.

This week is my week and I have a delicious meal planned. Since it got cool here for the first time fall comfort foods will be the stars of this week's luncheon.

Broccoli Cheese Soup - We will be topping our soup with shredded cheddar cheese
Crusty Rolls (from Publix, I wish I had the time and talent to make my own)
Apple Caramel Cookies - these are from one of my favorite food blogs, Stolen Moments. I dare you to click on the link. One look and you will be rushing out to buy apples and caramels!

That should get us through the rest of the week!

Meal Plan Monday Week of 10/19

I have been meal planning forever. It is the only way I can make sure we don't end up at the fast food drive thrus over and over again. However, this is my first blog posting about meal planning and my first time to link up with Meal Plan Monday eventhough I have been an avid follower for many months.

Monday - Tacos

Tuesday - Both kids not feeling well, so resulted to the old sick day stand by-
Chicken Noodle Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Wednesday - Rachel Ray's Sloppy Buffalo Joes and Mashed Potato SkinsBoth are new to us recipes

Thursday - I have BUNCO, so the rest of the family is on their own after football practice

Friday - Not sure yet, we may attend the high school football game and grab some game food.
