Hello beautiful ladies! Is it feeling like fall yet in your area? The leaves are changing here and the temperature is definitely cooler. I’m thinking it’s time to start making soup again. Last year during the fall/winter I would try to designate one night as soup night and I think I’ll do it again. Using theme nights when menu planning can really help to take the guesswork out it. Some other ideas include pasta night, mexican night, pizza night, etc. I usually do a beef night, a pork night, a chicken night, a leftover night, a pizza night and now a soup night. Sometimes I add a breakfast for dinner night just to be wild and crazy 🙂 My friend Andrea from Simple Organized Living just started using this method. You can read more about her process here. Do you like to use theme nights to plan your weekly dinner?
First up are two posts all about grocery shopping with kids, something I love to do. I hate it when I have to go grocery shopping alone which is the case now that my youngest is in school full time. It always made the time go so much faster and I found there are just so many teaching moments in the grocery store. Of course it does take some training and these two posts below provide a lot of helpful hints on how to do that.
