Meal Plan and Grocery List 8/30- 9/5

Can you believe that September is just 3 days away?! Fall is on the way and school is back in session. It's funny how fast the calendar fills up. We have a meeting, club, or practice every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday thru Thanksgiving and a few trips scheduled too. In addition, I begin teaching cooking classes next month. I'll be teaching six evening classes: Fall Tarts and Tartlets, a Meal Planning Workshop, Dream Dinners at Home: How to get the most out of your freezer, An Apple Dumpling Faceoff, Discover Duck, and Tortellini alla Panna. If you're reading this from the greater Cleveland area, please sign up! Being a newbie instructor, some of my classes are not full enough to run yet. I promise that it will be a fun 2 hours with great food! Bring a friend! Here's THE LINK to the course catalogue. Our family meal plan seems more important than ever now. Sure, we're busy, but we've still gotta eat! This meal plan utilizes seasonal ingredients as well as quick cooking and even a 5 ingredient dinner. Good stuff!
