Dinner Ideas for the Week

It’s a new week, and around my house, time to start back up homeschooling my new 4th and 7th graders. My oldest starts his second year of college this week as well. I’m going to work really hard at sticking to a schedule during the week, so I can fit in most of the things I need and want to do.  😛

Planning my dinners for the week helps tremendously, because I don’t have to wonder what’s for dinner each day,
or if I have the ingredients on hand to fix a good dinner for my family.  Since I’ve planned and shopped, it makes dinner time much less stressful.
