Can you believe it’s May? We’re almost halfway through the year! And while I’m trying to figure out what happened, I am happy to welcome warmer weather. We now have our plants around the house ready, our fire-pit is set and ready for back-yard barbecues and we’re ready to have friends over for cookouts and fun!
May is here and that means its time for a new meal plan to make dinners and shopping easy! Download your free menu today! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com
And since the weather is warming up…Grilling season is back! I know many people grill year round, but I just think grilled food tastes better in warmer weather – don’t you? So, this month you’ll find grilled meals on Friday nights. I continued to keep slow cooker meals on Sundays and Wednesdays to help with those frequently busy nights. Feel free to pick and choose what works for you and your family or even move things around if you need a slow cooker meal on another day. My hope each month is that you will find some new favorites to add to your own must have rotation. Once again I have included some quick and easy Breakfast, Lunch, Snack and Dessert ideas to help you throughout the month.
