I apologize that my blogging over the last few weeks has been rather scarce. I’ve kind of been busy doing all those things I blog about! Chicken coops needed cleaning and the flocks were moved. The baby bunnies needed to be weaned and sent with their new owners. More soap experiments needed to be conducted. Beans, pineapples, strawberry jam, and mustard needed canning. The mending pile was out of control. Herbs needed to be harvest, dried, and put away. Oh, and we had our semi-annual sausage-making weekend in there, too, and the Kenny Chesney/Tim McGraw Brothers of the Sun concert, along with all of the usual activities of daily living.
I thought things were supposed to lighten up now that most of our regular activities ended. I guess not. Sigh.
Anyway, for the second month in a row, I menu planned for the entire month! If you don’t plan your meals for the week, I highly recommend your start. If you’ve been weekly menu planning for a while, I definitely recommend trying your hand at planning a full month’s worth of meals. It is so worth it. I went one step further for June, and I wrote out my weekly grocery lists for the month, which only took about 15 minutes. Those lists are sure going to come in handy!
I pray you have a blessed week with less stress because you created a menu plan!
