Menu Plan: September 1-8

School is in session here. 🙂 We are back at it, full-time, and so far it is going well. A few hiccups of unexpected interruptions, but we are on track and alive. So, I am happy.

Being at home more often to get our schoolwork completed gives me more time in the kitchen to make more foods from scratch. Our menu plan for this week reflects more homemade items, and we only purchased chips and applesauce (unsweetened) as far as processed foods for this week. The chips are very few ingredients and nothing unpronounceable, so I feel happy with that! And the applesauce is because it was cheaper to buy the unsweetened jar than to buy a bunch of bags of apples and make it myself. Soon, though, we will be making some homemade applesauce.
