Sept 23 meal plan

Anyone else feeling like September is passing by way too fast? I love fall and just want to savor every crisp warm day, knowing they are limited. This weekend we celebrated the wedding of a dear friend and got to spend time at “camp.” Lots of hikes, baby-wearing, amazing food and no TV made for a delicious weekend.

So now back to reality. Family in town, business travel, evening events and the regular kids schedule. Meal planning really helps me get through the week so even though I would rather be going to sleep, writing this all down helps get the week off on the right foot.

Sept 23 meal plan

Sunday~ Omelets with tomatoes and herbs from the garden

Monday~ Tacos and rice. {If you want a meatless Monday meal, try these Black Bean Tacos}

Tuesday~ Garlic lover’s chicken over salad

Wednesday~ Spaghetti and meatballs in the slow cooker. I’ll adapt this recipe to the slow cooker and use some of our frozen pureed tomatoes for the sauce.

Thursday~ Spinach Sausage Soup. I strain it a bit for the kids and they love it!

Friday~ Pizza night with homemade dough.

What are you making this week?
