Hello and welcome back to another weekly meal plan! Can you believe it’s September already? I don’t have a school aged child but still, with two adults in the home who both work in education, I’ve got that back to school/back to routine kind of feeling anyway.
You might have noticed that I’ve started publishing this on Fridays instead of Mondays. Most of our weekly grocery store deals begin on Thursdays and I like to be prepared well ahead of the coming week. So I’ve always been meal planning towards the end of each week for the following one.
It suddenly occurred to me that you also might find it helpful to have these menu plans before the week begins so that if you find something you like or want to use my meal plan as is, you’ve got time to shop and prepare.
Also, you may notice that the Menu Plan Monday linkup is active again over on OrgJunkie. I’ll be linking up to this each week and sharing the link in my post (obviously, it won’t go live until Mondays) so you can head over there too. There’s lots more yummy meal plan inspiration there and in my previous plans so if this week isn’t really your cup of tea, be sure to check those out! (Scroll to the bottom of this post for those links).
WEEKLY MEAL PLAN FOR SEPTEMBER 3
YOUR GUIDE TO THE MEALS IN MY MENU PLANS:
FF = FREEZER FRIENDLY
SC = SLOW COOKER
MF = MEAT FREE
PLO = PLANNED LEFTOVERS
MA – MAKE AHEAD
BBQ – GRILLED FOOD
I’m normally also planning extra simple meals on Saturdays and Sundays so that we truly can take a Sabbath and spend some time focusing on family and fun!
