Now that summer is winding down, it’s time to start getting back into our fall routines. Around here that means more evening activities, which requires having a menu plan.
August is still summer around here, but I know a lot of people are already back-to-school. With back-to-school comes back to all of the extracurricular activities that take place in the evenings. I’m taking the next few weeks to get back into a groove so that when our activities pick up I’m not completely blindsided by them.
This year, all three children will be involved in scouting. That means Monday and Wednesday nights, plus 2 Thursdays and 1 Friday a month are dedicated to scouts. Throw in the homeschool field trips and activities, as well as the weekend camping trips and other activities, and I’m trying to mentally prepare for not being home again until April. But, before I get myself overwhelmed and reaching for the local takeout menus, I’m going to take the time now to get in a meal plan groove so that we can eat at home seven nights a week.
