January 2011 Meal Plan

Whew, just in the nick of time with the January 2011 Menu Plan this month! To say that 2011 snuck up on me would be an understatement. I’m not sure how it got here, but the last thing I remember was starting school in August…after that everything’s a big blur! But considering that I’m starting school back up on Monday, I thought I’d better get some sort of plan going lest I start my new year with total chaos.


So here it is, nothing fancy as usual, a couple small changes based on my family’s preferences. Hope it helps reduce some of your stress for 2011!

Happy New Year!

And may 2011 be filled with children committed to picking up after themselves and gleefully begging for more school work!

My Resolution: Spend more time enjoying my family “IN THE MOMENT” instead of  always planning for the future!

    Great resolution! How do you plan on doing that? I am always needing to slow down and enjoy the moments but like you I am a planner and sometimes feel I don't find the joy in the everyday like I should! Thanks for your wonderful resource that I use weekly!
