Hey Friends!! Can you believe how quickly summer is winding down?  Before we know it fall will be here.  Starting in September I hope to put out monthly meal plans.  However, we have so many plans during the month of August that weekly is the best I can do!  I’m trying to add some more fun for the kids this time, so I’ve included a couple of cute, kid-friendly meals.  Also, we have a birthday in our house this week!  It’s a tradition here to let the birthday girl (or boy) pick dinner for the week, so these are my daughter’s choices.

Weekly Meal Plan for the Busy Homeschool Mom from Homeschool Balance


As always, here are a few things to remember:

  • I do almost all my shopping at my local Aldi (love that store), so I keep my prices down.
  • We are MOSTLY clean eaters, but I do add a few convenience products to keep it simple.
  • We don’t use white flour or white sugar. I use Pyure as a sweetener & a low-carb baking blend.
  • I like to pick my meals each day, so that’s why this plan is in list form.
  • When time permits I can pinto beans, chicken, and sausage. This makes my life easier.
  • I also cook & freeze batches of ground beef, as well as brown rice.
  • Don’t forget to check out this week’s printable as well!  This week you can access the plan’s links from the printable.
