Menu Plan Monday: week of 13/September

Mmmm… I think it is about time I began posting my menu plans!  Summer is officially over, school has started, and we are almost into a routine.

I love menu-planning; I missed it over the summer!  I like having a set schedule of what our week is going to look like.  I am a planner by nature, so menu-planning falls smoothly into my incredibly anal need for order routine!

    Ok, I know you’re gonna think I am being sarcastic. I can’t imagine why! But on a serious note, I found your menu planning to be a great idea which would help any one trying to organize or prioritize. How would you suggest planning for a family or someone you know that is so busy. Since you know my situation you can take my family for example. I am gone on Mondays until 9:00 p.m. (class). I am gone all day tuesdays and Thursdays. (class) We are hardly ever at home. I am not being sarcastic, just thought you might have some good ideas for all the people like me.

    love ya!

    Shane, I know you are not being sarcastic! You raise an excellent question. Let me think on this, and I will get back to you. I will even attempt a post on it 🙂

    Thanks a bunch! And, just so you know, I appreciate the question!
