Ahh…August. When the thoughts of days spent by the pool and wearing sandals are replaced by school supplies and sensible shoes for gym class.
Here we are, dear August. We meet again. I’m making sure I have ALL THE THINGS. School supply things. School clothes things. Backpack things. Lunchbox things. ALL THE THINGS.
One of the things that I want to make sure we have is a menu plan. Our days will be more structured and we’ll be adding in things maybe like homework and after school activities. It’ll be getting colder (eventually!) and when that happens, I’ll be adding more soups to the menu. Less don’t-heat-up-the-house-please meals.
But I’ll dig in and enjoy these last couple of weeks of summer that I got and then I’ll shoo the kids out the door!
Anyway….a new month means a new monthly menu plan! 31 tasty and easy meals to start your August on the right foot.
