With my little ones all grown up, I don't have to be so precise in my menu planning for the week; but, I am definitely making the Amish friendship bread... school hasn't started in my neck of the woods yet and the stores are filled with young mothers checking out school supplies... come visit when you can and you should have plenty of time now that school has started...

I'm always amazed by people who can plan everything out so well! I'm an organized gal but still can't get that one down pat. Gonna have to try those homemade spaghetti-o's!

I looked at your menu today and didn't get past the homemade pop tarts...found the link and made them. The kids devoured them. Note to self: next time at least double the recipe!
Thanks for the great menu ideas. Can you post the taco muffin recipe one day? I hope I can adapt it for my food allergic kiddos!

We love meat loaf muffins and make them often. I love that they freeze well so I can serve a homemade meal one serving at a time. Great menu.

*NEW!* Stay current on what's cooking!
