Weekly Meal Plan with Grocery List #32 | Life as MOM

Christmas is just ten days away? How did that happen?! We’ve got one full week of school and then almost two of vacation. I’m hoping to have some down time with my peeps. That means that this week needs to be productive.

My younger kids have a poem memorized from their school books:

Work while you work, play while you play,

This is the way to be happy each day.

All that you do, do with your mite;

Things done by halves are never done right.

Ain’t that the truth? So that means I need to be productive this week so we can play next week. One way I can do that — and you can, too — is to have meals happen in an orderly fashion. A meal plan and easy-fix meals are a natural part of that.

This week’s meal plan includes not one — but THREE — crockpot meals, one simple oven meal, and one stovetop soup.

    We use the same schoolbooks, and I simply love that rhyme. I should hang it on the fridge again, since none of my kids has encountered it for a few years.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
