Welcome to the weekly FREE meal planning resource! This week I want to share some “last days of summer” meal planning goodies. The end of the summer usually makes for lots of last minute get-togethers and impromptu play dates for our family. During these times, I like to have a lot of ideas handy to make our work load light so we can spend more time enjoying our time together as a family and with friends.
