Menu Plan Monday: Week of September 10th & Asian Grilled Chicken salad

Asian Grilled Chicken Salad

Wow – you can definitely tell Fall came to Kansas three days ago!! We have had lows in the 40s and 50s overnight and temperature no higher than 82.

There has been a cool breeze everyday, so we’ve had the windows open constantly. It’s so nice!! (This week we should clean the windows.)

However, with the windows open, I’ve either had my allergies bothering me, or I’m developing a cold. We’ll have to see later today which it is. But it’s worth having fresh air in the house, right?

 

Menu Plan Breakfasts

Easy DIY Yogurt

Healthy Granola

Whole Wheat Berry Waffles

I finally bought milk, so we can have cereal as well.
