Happy long weekend everyone! Here we are in September with the kids back in school and the weather a changing. If you’ve been on the fence about menu planning NOW is a great time to start. When change is already in the air why not add one more and give menu planning a try. It’s a new month and a new season, a perfect time for a brand new start. I promise it doesn’t take long at all but the amount of time saved is tremendous (not to mention all the other benefits of menu planning!). I’m sure all these ladies participating here today will agreed with me or they wouldn’t continue to do it week after week :) Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
I’ve even got some fun resources for you that might help. The first is a really cute menu planner from Mine for the Making. Click on the link to print yourself a copy.
Next is an awesome idea for creating a menu planner right on your fridge from Sassy Sites:
Is that fantastic or what? And guess what she also sells them as well for $35.00. Check out her post here for information. I’m not affiliated with this gal in any way, just thought her idea was clever and wanted to share with you.
Now I’d like YOUR help. I want to branch out a little more and find me some new food blogs to follow for recipes and inspiration. I already follow about 40 in my Google Reader (many of which you see me link to here week after week) but I’d love to follow more that share recipes similar to the recipe criteria I go by. Would you be so kind as to add the link(s) to your favorite food blogs in the comments for me. That would be awesome and helpful, thanks!!
Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
Monday: Breakfast for dinner since I don’t want to go grocery shopping until Tuesday :) ~ Yogurt Pancakes
Tuesday: Cheesy Pasta Bake
Wednesday: Hashbrown-Pork Chop Casserole
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Quick homemade pizza
