Fall is upon us! Okay, not really. Not yet, anyway. But it’s almost September and that makes me think of fall. Mostly because it makes me think of the AppleJack Festival down in Nebraska City. Which makes me think of apple crisp, apple cream cheese dip, and caramel apple cheesecake bars. Which makes me think yummy thoughts.

If you need to think about more than just apples, then try this monthly menu plan for September!

What if I don’t cook every night?
Awesome! I don’t either – we often have leftovers 2-3 night/week. Just take this basic plan, cut out some meals and make leftovers part of your plan!

What if I don’t want a particular meal on a specific night?
Awesome! Just take this basic plan and swap meals around.

What if I want to see the Excel version?
Awesome! You can download it here.

What if I don’t eat beef? Or chicken? Or pork?
Awesome! Just take this basic plan, remove the foods you won’t eat and put in foods you will eat.

What if I don’t know how to make that meal?
Awesome! Included are the links for the recipe that I usually use.

What if we always have pizza on Friday nights?
Awesome! (Can I come over?) Just remove my Friday meals and put in pizza.

What if I want to plan for more than just dinner?
Awesome! Feel free to print this out, write out breakfast & lunch meals. Or you can edit it in Excel and make it your own!

What if I don’t like your recipe?
Awesome! Use which ever recipe you normally use and just use this basic plan as a suggestion.

What if I have my own monthly menu plan?
Awesome! Care to share it? Share it down below in the comments so that we all can see it and be inspired!

What’s cool about this menu plan?
I tried to have a variety of meals each week – some beef, some chicken, and some pastas. That way you won’t get too bored. There are also plenty of ways to save time when using this menu plan. Examples: When prepping chicken at the beginning of the month, make enough for the other recipes and freeze it for future use. When making ground beef, brown 2-3 times the normal amount and freeze that. It makes it super quick to pull meals together!

    I love your meal plans, I’m not near as organized as you, but I do try to have at least a few meals prepped for the week and ready to go. One of mine for this coming week, Dorothy Lynch marinated chicken. So easy, just dump some Dorothy Lynch on chicken breast, let marinate in the fridge for at least an hour (I put mine in the freezer until I know I’m ready for it that day), then grill or bake as you normally would for chicken. Super easy and awesome. Did I mention awesome? 😉
