Back to School Menu Plan with The Lush List! | Do Say Give

Back to School Menu Plan with The Lush List!



Meal planing is not my strong suit. So when I need some fresh ideas in that department, I reach out to my friend Alicia Wood of The Lush List.  Today Alicia is sharing some fabulous, healthy, and easy meals to help us get this school year off to a great start.

Here is Alicia…

I have a dear friend who often says, “Lay your plan and work your plan.” (Thank you, Tanya Foster!) This is exactly what I am doing!  Today I want to share my Back to School Menu Plan.  We basically have first day of school three different weeks in my home this year and the first is Friday!


So as you avoid the “What’s for dinner?” question at 5 o’clock over the next few weeks, I’ll be turning to my easiest and most loved recipes.  Things that take little prep time, my family loves and have a bit left for a lunch or two.  Yikes! Back to packing lunches, again….sigh…

Quinoa Edamame Lettuce Wraps

Brisket sandwiches

Mediterranean Salad with Roasted Chicken

Things you’ll want for prep:



Thank you, Alicia! I’ll be making the chicken tonight and sharing on Instagram so stay tuned!

  1. Wow! All of these recipes look so good, especially the slow cooker beef brisket and tortilla soups. Bookmarking this for fall tailgate parties. Thanks for sharing and introducing us to The Lush List.

    On another note, did you get a new logo? It looks so pretty. Love the bow!
