    You have a lot of smoothies on your menu. Do you actually get your blender out all those mornings and make smoothies or am I missing some great product.

    I love your website and am looking forward to beginning the Letter of the Week curriculum with my 3 year old. I do have on comment about your meal plan. Have you considered a meatless Monday meal? We try to eat a vegetarian meal 2-3 times a week. I noticed you use a lot of meat in your meal plans. Just a thought. Lentils are a fast and easy way to get protein into a diet. Thanks for all the advice and tips you offer on your website.

      Hi Christine,
      I would love some meatless recipes if you have them to share!

        Have you read the scriptures in the Bible about the foods God intended us to eat? I was trying to look over your menu, but there is a large amount of pork which is a forbidden food as well as a few others. I do love a lot of your products and devotions. I was just a little disappointed when I got to review a menu. Please share any insight you have on this.

    Hi Erica Is there any chance of you doing more different pictures for the letter D? Like maybe cute baby ducks? I see you have several for a (apple& ants) J (jellybeans & Jesus) and also M (m&m’s & monkey. Would love to see another option. I bought your LOTW a while back and am starting my girls with it this year. Thank-you I really like it.

    Thank you so much! I don’t know how you do all this but I’m so relieved I’m in tears! THANK YOU!!!

    So, you basically serve the same meals every month? Am I missing something?

  • Mandie Sanders September 4, 2013 at 12:33 am

    Hi Erika, was just wondering if you shop weekly for you meal plan or once a month or how that works :o) Also wanted to let you know you are a God send for my and my crazy homeschool life!

  • Maria September 4, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    I have the same question at Amy H – it seems that the menu doesn’t change from month to month. Do you just keep making the same things every month?

      Hi Maria,
      I do tend to repeat my meals on a monthly basis. I figure if we’re only repeating a meal once a month that’s good enough for me! Otherwise I tend to repeat meals weekly out of lack of ideas! I do change up my menus though based on seasons. So you’ll see more soups and stuff coming up and the December menu has a lot of fun holiday things in it as well. Summer tends to have more grilled items. Also as you’ll notice, I put up an editable menu so you can change anything you don’t like to fit the needs of your family better :o) Hope that helps!

        Thanks for your reply. My family is very adventurous eaters so I tend to look at a lot of recipe websites but trying to create a menu of some sort.

    Hey Erica! Thanks so much for your blog! It’s such a blessing for me and my family. I don’t know how you do it all! You’re so organized!! (I also have four kids and am a homeschooling momma except only two are in school. My little ones are 2 yrs and 2 1/2 months!) I’ve made a menu plan for a while, usually two weeks at a time and usually just dinners. It takes me forever when I wanna plan breakfasts and lunches too, so I’ve loved using yours for the last two months!! Such a time saver! And we are absolutely loving the smoothies!! Such a great way to start the day! I’m making my own granola (using Megan’s granola recipe from and we love it!! I use coconut oil for the oil and add flax after baking and I just love all the healthy goodness we get from it! I got the idea for granola from you also, before I never used it except for granola bars. Delicious!! I have noticed that the plans are similar from month to month, but I don’t care. You’ve still taken the time to do it so I don’t have to, and there’s nothing wrong with being similar to what you ate a month ago! With out a plan most people will eat the same dinners week to week. And if I don’t like something I can plan for myself or tweak it! I pretty much follow your breakfast, lunch, and snacks exactly. I usually do different dinners to suit my picky family. But what a blessing to have it all done for me and just have to plan the dinners!! I think what exactly your family eats is still a personal choice and it’s very sweet of you to share that with us. People can take it or leave it, or tweak it to fit their needs. Hopefully respecting the fact that you are a busy woman who has taken time to organize this out and share it, and realizing that it’s still your personal decision what goes on it because it’s what your family will be eating! I for one really appreciate it! And I know a lot of other people do too!! Thanks again!

    Hi I was just wondering what your pork roast recipe is when I click on it, it brings up beef burrito recipe, also is your pork tenderloin your pork shoulder recipe? Thanks I appreciate all your help.

Thanks so much for sharing everything and god bless.
