This week kicks off a new school year for our family. In addition to the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and pristine new uniforms, the smell of regularly scheduled dinners will once again waft from our home.
I love cooking dinner for my family. I love having people join us for a weeknight meal. And I love the challenge of carving out time in the midst of my busy day to prepare the food, to make it a priority to sit down together around the table. It’s always worth the effort.
One of my favorite parts of cooking dinner is planning out the weekly menu, and today I am excited to begin sharing The Menu Board with you. This isn’t an on-line-only fantasy-wish-list dinner plan. These are my real, honest-to-goodness, actual plans for what I’m serving my family for dinner this week. What you see is what we eat.
I hope this becomes a useful resource and source of inspiration for you and your family! Here’s what’s on The Menu Board for this week…
