Wow ya’ll…I haven’t written up a weekly menu for you since last November! Yikes! There is just something about the start of a new school year that makes me excited about ROUTINE, SCHEDULES, and PLANNING! (Yes, I’m a planning nerd. I own it.) This month, I sat down and created my September meal plan, which included a REAL breakfast at least twice a week (not cereal, oatmeal, etc.),dinner (entree and side dishes), and treats. I am hoping to keep this up through the colder months, and share my weekly menu with you! (This is a real and rare glimpse into our actual daily life..In the Meal Plan Monday archives, I never posted what my family was actually eating! Now you’ll know!

My hope is that meal planning will save you time, stress, and money!
