The school year is starting this week and it feels like a good time to get back on the wagon for meal planning. This summer has been different for us, with one big change and lots of little repercussions. Money has been tight, so dinner has been an act of what's in the pantry and how can we make it last. I'm hoping that having a meal plan for the week will take some afternoon stress off. I also think seeing our week as a whole helps me make sure we are getting a variety of foods in, like vegetables. You know, those green things? We haven't really had enough of those lately!
