Last week we did not get to do our Colonial Day. So I'm going to try again next week.
We unfortunately didn't do great and ate out way too much. I'm striving to limit take out the next two weeks. I'll make sure to have the meals ready in the fridge on busy days so that people can eat when they are home and ready.

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!
