August Meal Plan

Can you believe that August is only 3 days away?  Back to school is right around the corner.  I’m really not quite sure where summer went.  This month was a lot more productive for me than the past couple months, and I am excited to share August’s Meal Plan!  I think that you will love the menu as much as I loved planning it.

August’s Menu has a lot of 30-Minute Meals as well as easy and light summer dinners that take advantage of all of the fresh summer produce.  I have included a printable menu and grocery list that has all of the ingredients that you need to cook the planned dinners.

Yummy! Right?  I think so.  My favorite recipe on August’s Meal Plan is the Chick and Waffle Sliders on August 23.  I am looking forward to these most.  Last week, D.J. took me out for dinner to a fried chicken restaurant.  Living in Colorado, this is a big deal.  It’s hard to find good fried chicken around here.  Anyways… I was inspired by the chicken and waffles I had at the restaurant, and added it to August’s Meal Plan.  I did include frozen mini waffles in the grocery list, but do yourself a favor, and make the waffles homemade.  It’s totally worth the extra time!
