Trying to stay on Menu. Not doing a bad job. I'm just trying to keep them from needing to eat fast, pre-packaged food. The last couple of weeks have been a bit lazy because we didn't have a very set schedule. But we managed.

Why I plan.....
Who isn't busy?!?! Kids schedules, schoolwork, work, WOW!! Life just does not stop!
When I create a menu, I include our schedule on it also. In fact, I type the schedule into the table that I created first. Then I know what is going on that day, and I can plan crockpot meals or even know if I need to have a make-ahead meal ready. I do not use a fancy downloadable calendar, I simply use Microsoft Word. I have a table I created on there. At the bottom, I keep a running list of menu items that either I want them to try or food that is loved by all.
Hope everyone has a great week!! See everyone next Monday!
