Menu Plan & a Give-a-way including a $10 gift card for groceries!

Back to school means back to busy weeknight schedules.  Between homework, activities, practices, work and class, preparing a delicious home-cooked meal can be quite a challenge, and getting started is often the hardest part. Let new ProgressoTM Recipe StartersTM cooking sauces give you a head start to a home cooked meal, and you’ll ace the dinner time routine this year!

I was given some of these recipe starters to try.  I do try to cook from scratch most of the time but every once in a while I need some thing really quick so I am going to give these Progresso Starters a try.

"Progresso Recipe Starters sauces are available in five flavorful varieties that can each be used as a starter to create numerous home-cooked meals. For added inspiration, Progresso created 80 recipes utilizing this new line of cooking sauces that can be found on Many of these recipes are classic family favorites, such as Bacon Mac n’ Cheese, Chicken Pot Pie and Chicken Parmesan, and utilize ingredients your family may already have on-hand."

  • Two cans of Progresso Recipe Starters
  • $10 Gift Card to purchase your recipe ingredients
  • Progresso Recipe Starters recipe book, including 5 recipes to get you started

Here is this week's menu plan.  You will see some repeats because I just didn't follow my menu plan much last week.

Menu Plan

I keep breakfast and lunches simple.  I do some things on the weekend to make it easier for the week. Breakfasts are usually served with fruit smoothies.
