Wow, talk about the summer flying by…. our kids start school in just a couple of days and although I feel prepared for back to school now, it always seems to nip me in the behind that first week! Our school district is also starting off the school year with a full first week! The last few years it was just a half a week, which was just enough time to get the kids (and myself!) back to reality and a schedule. I think five full days will be a very long week!!
To prepare, I’ve decided to work out a full week of healthy dinners and lunches ahead of time… less stress makes for a much happier household!!
Now the menu I came up with works well for my family’s likes and dislikes… feel free to edit it accordingly to your needs.
