August is always one of the busiest months in our year. Summer is winding down and we start back to school, which means we get back to more strict routines. That also means that I need to have a more solid meal plan in place, so we aren’t caught off-guard. Meal planning really helps us stay healthy and keeps our food budget down too.
This month I have mixed in some of the 15-minute and 30-minute meal options to give you some great options as these last summer nights can be busy. However, I have kept slow cooker meals on Sundays and Wednesdays and grilled recipes on Friday nights.
Feel free to move any of the recipes around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef, pork) as well as soups and salads to hopefully keep everyone happy. 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.
