Last week was our first week of school, and even though I hate that summer's over, and it was a busy week, I don't mind getting back into a routine. I seem to get more accomplished when I have less free time but more focus. My oldest is a SENIOR this year (yikes) in high school, and I'm homeschooling my two youngest, so having a meal plan is essential to keeping up with all the responsibilities. I highly recommend making one, and if you need help with ideas, check out the "main dishes tab" at the top of this page, or go to "categories" and click on "menu plans."
