Those of you who've been around a while know that all three of my boys have their birthdays in September. Needless to say, it's a budget blower for the month. This year two of them fall in the same week so I'm going ANTI-menu plan this week.
For birthdays we let them sort-of orchestrate their day, we take time off of school(homeschooling has some great benefits), work (being self employed has it's perks too) and most obligations and just do what they want to do. Somehow, they all got it in their heads and chose to eat out ALL three meals on their birthdays this year so we'll be eating out two days this week and having leftovers or easy meals (think grilled cheese, antipasto trays, soups and rolls) on the other days.
Therefore I'm going to fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to menu plans this week.
Check back for the Shopping Round up. I'll just be getting a few basics for the week.
