Hey friend 🖐
I hope the past week has treated you well. It has been pretty uneventful around here which is just fine with me!
I have been mulling over making some changes to this weekly menu post and wanted to run it by you to see what you would think.
First, and the most major change which I have already made is reducing the amount of breakfasts, lunches and snacks that I have on the menu. We honestly just don't eat that much variety in those meals with the kids back in school.
I usually don't eat breakfast during the week and lately I have only been making one breakfast for the kids. On the weekends we generally have one family breakfast and then the other day we just fend for ourselves.
For Lunch, the boys either pack a super simple lunch (usually one of my homemade lunchables or a low carb PB&J) and I have either leftovers or a sampling of whatever recipe I am working on for the day.
So the only real variety is with supper. I know it may be boring, but it's also effective 🙂
The other change, that I was hoping to get your input on is switching to a monthly meal plan. I would still share the same amount of menus, but just in a once a month type of post instead of weekly.
These posts are fun to write, but they do take a ton of time and with all the extra work I'm doing for the cookbook, time is something that there is never enough of!
My plan as of now, is to try it out in October and see how it goes. So stay tuned and let me know what you think.
