Menu Plan Monday: September 2012, Part 1


1) I’m actually doing this meal plan a full week ahead (although you’re not seeing it until the right day)
3) The syllabus for my fall class is 29 pages.

Okay, now that I got that out of my system… the meal plan is below.  No, you’re not seeing anything new.  However, what’s there is tried and true.  I moved over to a more visual system when I’m creating our meal plans and because I’m viewing our calendar at the same time, I see some trends. For example, both kids have activities on Saturday AND Sunday this fall. My weekdays are crazy with classes, and Saturday I’m at the hospital until mid-afternoon. So, I made the decision to go a little old school and reserve Sunday for a nice “Family Dinner.”  I think we are all really going to need that time to connect (well, in as much as a three and five year old can connect with their parents, that is).  I also have to be mindful of the time I have to actually make dinner on school nights, as well as what is easy for suitNtie to finish or serve the kiddos after I’m gone, since my class is at 5:30.  With that said, this is what I’ve come up with.  We will see how it goes. 🙂
