Menu Plan Monday: August 31st, 2015


August 29th –September 5th

Hello Friends – Meal planning just became more important for us as school will be staring soon and our commitments increase, including soccer practice numerous nights a week.  You might notice that many recipes are carried over from last week.  I am finding that by making sure we eat left overs night or two a week, my two week menu really lasts for nearly three weeks!   This is a huge money savings  and we aren’t throwing out leftovers! Win..Win.  We call our leftover night “Old Coyan Buffet” which seems to make it special for some reason and looked forward to by the family.
