We actually had the meal plan made up the first day of this month but we have failed to get typed up and posted. As sad as that is, we hope to impress you by noting we have followed the meal plan so far this month. So here is some meal planning inspiration for you!
September 2012 Monthly Meal Plan
Week 1 (August 26 – September 1)

Week 2 (September 2 – September 8)

Sunday– Spaghetti Squash Casserole
Monday–Veggie Burgers and Hot Dogs for the kids
Wednesday–Fry Bread Sandwiches
Saturday– Lasagna w/ Salad
Week 3 (September 9 – September 15)
We hope to plan a Sunday dinner after a day out and about! For the rest of the week, we went back to some basic meals that are family favorites and won’t add to the busy schedules this week!
Sunday– Pork Tenderloin
Tuesday–Macaroni and Cheese
Week 4 (September 16 – September 22)
This week combine some easy to make dinners and some comfort food dinners. We are starting to get into the school year routine which includes evening activities so we try to plan our meals around what the evening activities are!
Week 5 (September 23 – September 29)
We decided to go for a nice Sunday dinner and then make it a point to use some of fresh produce with the spaghetti squash fritters and probably the quesadillas. At the middle of the week, we decided to go with kid friendly meals and end the week off with a break for the cook … pizza night!
Sunday–Roast Chicken Dinner
Monday–Spaghetti Squash Fritter
Wednesday– Breakfast for Dinner
Week 5 (September 30 – October 6)
Gnocchi is something I learned to make a few years ago and to Beth’s surprise, she loved it. Now the debate is if this meal will be potato gnocchi or pumpkin gnocchi. You will have to wait and see what I post come October!
