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.

April 2014 Monthly Menu Plan

apr2014menu.jpg

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying 2014! We’ve only got a few months left of school, then we’re out for summer! Yay! .   So today I have another monthly meal plan for you. I hope these are helping you to keep your days a little more organized and stress free! I don’t change my meals up too much, but the plan helps me stay on budget when grocery shopping. It also helps me avoid ordering out for dinner, or heading out for lunches. I normally shop once a week either on the weekends on on Mondays. That way we have all of our needed ingredients for the week’s menu plan. I also do my best to stay to my shopping list so I don’t go over budget or come home with a lot of extras I didn’t intend on buying.
