Well, hello May. By the time you leave, I may be in a puddle in the corner of the room, but right now I am full of optimism, hope, and fresh starts. In the last few months we’ve started a couple of things that we will continue to help us make it through this last.month.of.school. (I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.)
Prepare 3-4 breakfast options for each week.
The boys will cook (and clean up…hallelujah and amen!) supper.
Plan our menu.
We’ll see how this goes. I’ll check back in with you toward the end of the month. In the meantime, why don’t you grab some ideas and plan along with me?!? (Psst…did you know you can sign up here to print your very own FREE menu plan?)

So, what I’ll do this month is double or triple recipes when I make them and put one in the freezer. I plan on doubling the following recipes:
Are you new to menu planning? This video clip below shows you how to plan for the month and think through your menu. By planning your menu (and sticking to it!!!) you will save time and money…I promise!
Want someone to do the planning for you?? My friend, Laura, over at Heavenly Homemakers will do just that! For $1 a week, she will email you her plan, Simple Meals. Does it get any simpler?? I think not.
PS-By using the code, SIMPLE10, you will receive $10 off of the year, making the cost less than $1 per week. How lovely, right?!?

Please be nice. You get me every year, because you are the Christmas of the spring. This year I’m going to take it one day at a time. Nope. One moment at a time. I love you May for your spring flowers, end of school celebrations, and glorious temperatures.
