Quick, Easy, Kid-Approved: Weekly Meal Plan {Week of 1/28/19}

This post may contain affiliate links.

As homeschool moms, it’s a busy season of life for us. We are getting up early to prepare for school, instructing the kids with lessons, and then running the kids around to their various activities. It’s no wonder we are exhausted and unprepared for dinner time when it rolls around!

However, there is a solution to being prepared for meals — it just takes a little planning and I’ve been doing that just for you! And, your family (including your kids!) will appreciate the variety of meals.

If you are not taking advantage of my weekly meal plans, it’s really not too late!

Get started now, all you have to do is skim through the meal ingredients and write down any items you don’t have on hand. Then, pick a day of the week for one trip to the grocery store. Sundays are the best days for me to get ready for the week.
