This week marks the first full week of our new fall schedule. That means both kids in school for part of the day, part of the week. Swim, gymnastics and soccer have all started. Mom’s night out is on deck for Thursday. And we pack up for a weekend away to watch our friends get married. A busy week so we will keep dinners simple and healthy to keep us on track.

    I love menu planning. I helps me stay organized and saves me a lot of money because I use foods from my fridge, freezer and pantry when planning recipes so I am not buying more food unless I need it. BTW…I love C.O.R.N! When I read it on your board I thought….wow that is a bit strange to have just corn for dinner but when I read it on your plan it made perfect sense – we do that too. I may have to steal it.

    I love your abbreviation for leftover night! So cute! I’ll have to start using that for the days we do leftovers! I found you via organizing junkie, great meal plan, have a great week!

      Thanks Kate! I like to think I can reinspire my leftovers into new dishes, but I really love the ease of just using up whatever is in the fridge to make sure we don’t waste anything. One less night of cooking is always appreciated!
