Menu Plan Monday 9/20-9/26



Time to get back to menu planning!!  Last week I didn’t have a plan due to being on vacation the weekend before so I flew by the seat of my pants.  Thankfully I had enough still in my stockpile to carry me a few days before I had to go grocery shopping.  And I did remember to make up a menu plan before I went grocery shopping so that I could get what I needed to finish off the week and get what I needed for this week.

This week’s shopping trip was payday week shopping, which means that I have enough hopefully to get my family through until next payday(Sept 30th).  I should only need milk and a few produce items before the next payday! 

We are into the second week of our school year and I decided to go for the simple and quick meals for this week’s menus.  Based on the temperatures this week of mid-high 70s, the fall weather doesn’t want to stay around but I am in the mood for some fall meals!  I am going to be making some soups this week!
