In between my child screaming and changing diapers I was able to organize the monthly menu for September and make a shopping list. Turns out the local grocery store had some really great deals (thank you, Labor Day) and I was very excited that I got some great sirloin steaks (7 total) for right around $10.00 and a bunch of other things for a fairly good price.
So I did rearrange the original Woman's Day September meal plan to suit my own needs (switched slow cooker recipes to the day I work, took out foods we don't like, are allergic to, etc.,) but I think it is a solid meal plan and will work out well for our family. Here is a peek at September's recipe plan- note there aren't really any weekend recipes because I don't post on weekends:

So far, I am really liking this planning in advance thing. The fact that I went grocery shopping means I don't need to search for recipes based on the ingredients that I have, and I am also sticking to a budget. So that means, so far, so good, now I just need to make sure I don't botch the recipes!
See you all tomorrow for our first September recipe!
