Menu Plans for September 1st – 7th

I figure the best part of Autumn is turning over a new leaf.
Hmm. Was that too cliché?

So here I am, back at this menu planning habit, deeply inspired, by my friend Jenny’s menu plans.  If you haven’t taken the time to check out her sample menu and shopping list, please do so.  I love real food, and as much as I love planning menus, sometimes it’s just easier to have someone else come up with new ideas. 😉  So without more delay, here is our menu plan for the week, modified only slightly from Jenny’s.  🙂

  1. Hi! Just wondering if in the two years since this post your family has decided to turn to a ‘kosher’ or ‘biblically clean’ diet. You seem to have a knack for good sounding meals! It took little time for our family once we began to observe the true Shabbat to turn our hearts to many such changes … blessings … michele

    • Hi Michele –
      I actually came from a Sabbath observant background, and we did observe a kosher diet. We no longer follow that particular faith, now that I’m married and have joined our church. Blessings to you in your journey.
