Hi everyone! I can’t even tell you how excited I am for spring and summer! We’ve had a crazy mix of weather this month going from 70 one day, to snow the next. I have set my Uggs and Flip-flops by the door so I can decide which ones to wear on my way out the door. Anyway, I have some fun meals this month, and I’m excited to have that planning done and not have to worry about food when I can be outside playing instead!   Download the April 2015 Menu: April 2015 Meal Plan PDF April 2015 Meal Plan – Word Doc (editable) For more fun recipes, visit my Recipes Page!

Guess what time it is? Yep, you got it right, it’s time for another monthly meal plan! March is already upon us, and that means we only have about 3 more months before schools out for summer! Yay! And yes, I have a bit of spring fever here. Colorado has been crazy, 70 degrees one day, and snowing the next. I basically keep a pair of flip-flops and my Uggs at the front door, so I can decide on the way out which ones to wear. Anyway, I have a new monthly meal plan for you all today! Hope you enjoy it.

January 2015 Monthly Meal Plan

jan2015.jpg

Happy 2015 everyone (almost)! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and are ready to start off the new year! I’m still reeling from the fact that another whole year has blazed by! So much that I’ve gotten off track with my meal planning so I’m vowing to get it together this year! That means I need to head to the grocery store, and I always take my January 2015 monthly meal plan with me so I know what I’m there for. Have you ever gotten to the grocery store and forgotten what you went there to get? I do. Sadly it happens all the time. So a list is a must for me. Right now I use an app on my iPhone called MyShopi. It allows me to pick my store, then enter my items. It then sorts them in the aisle they are found in which keeps me from backtracking while at the store, which is handy when you’re in a hurry! Or when you have 4 children with you who don’t want to be there if you catch my drift.   Download the January 2015 Menu: January 2015 Meal Plan PDF January 2014 … [Read more...]

November 2014 Monthly Meal Plan

nov2014.jpg

Good morning readers! I hope you’re having a beautiful fall day like we are today! I love the cool air, and am excited to be in a comfy sweater, my favorite jeans, and flip-flops. Yes, I said flip-flops. For those of you who don’t know, in Colorado, we like to wear flip-flops unless it’s snowing. Literally. And with the coming of a new month, it’s time for another monthly meal plan for you all! I actually veered from my plan the last few months but I’m getting back on track this month since we’ve been eating what seems like the same thing over and over due to lack of creativity on my part! A little planning can do a lot for the budget, and help keep people from whining about my meals. So here we go!   Download the 2014 November Monthly Meal Plan: 2014 November Monthly Meal Plan PDF 2014 November Monthly Meal Plan Word Doc (Editable)   If you haven’t already used this before, you can click on any of the underlined menu items to get to the … [Read more...]

2014 September Monthly Meal Plan

sept2014.jpg

Good morning everyone! Well, we’re finally back in school. I don’t know where my summer went, but I’m always excited when we get to start new curriculum and a new year. Fall is one of my four favorite seasons, and I H.E.A.R.T. September back-to-school time! And this is when my meal plans really start coming in handy. Getting back into the groove of things always takes time. I somehow forget…or maybe block out…just how much of my day is taken up by educating our children! Point being there really isn’t much time for me to think about meals these days! Anyway,  I hope my plans help you out as well, and can take at least one thing off of your busy plate each day!   Download the 2014 September Monthly Meal Plan: 2014 September Monthly Meal Plan PDF 2014 September Monthly Meal Plan Word Doc (Editable)     Coming soon! I’m working on putting them all together in a book for you as well to make it a little easier each month! And since you always ask, … [Read more...]

2014 August Monthly Meal Plan

Aug2014.jpg

Say What!? Did you say “August”? O.M.G! Seriously? I had so many grand plans for summer. Being a dutiful homeschooler, I even got a bunch of curriculum to help keep my kids busy and educated. Which would’ve been nice if we’d been home to actually use it. Which we weren’t. So we didn’t. And now school’s getting ready to start. I want to know what happened to my summer? Did anyone see it? Because I blinked the other day, and I think I must’ve missed it! Anyhoo… I honestly can’t believe I’m posting this today, but yes it’s time for an August meal plan!   Download the 2014 August Monthly Meal Plan: 2014 August Monthly Meal Plan PDF 2014 August Monthly Meal Plan Word Doc (Editable) If you haven’t already used this before, you can click on any of the underlined menu items to get to the recipe.
