Menu Plan: 8/15- The "New Job, New Thursday" Plan

My husband starts a new job today (Monday) and, with it, comes a slightly different schedule. The one thing we know for sure is that he will no longer have to work on Saturdays... can I get a big cheer for that one??? His weekdays will run just a tad later, but that shouldn't affect our dinner plans. The only day with a significant change? Thursday. In this new position, he'll be going in a little later on Thursday morning and working later in the evening. As a result, I'm trying out something new with our menu-planning.... Thursdays now include a hearty breakfast and a quick, simple supper. Since both my older kids will be in "PM" school starting the end of this month, we should be able to keep that routine going. I'll let you know how it goes!

That's what's hittin' the table around here! How about at your house?

Oh... and regarding the salmon experiment? Four out of the five of us really liked it! (Can you guess who the hold-out was? Hint... it wasn't a man or a child. *blush*) My five-year old has already requested it for next month's menu plan. I'll consider it a success!
