Meal Planning: August Menu with weekly shopping list

Do you like cooking and planning meals? I love cooking, but got tired of planning out meals every month. So a couple years back I decided to just write down what we were going to eat month by month to  avoid the tediousness of redoing it each month! So many of you have been asking me about it  I decided to share with you!
Meal Planning: August Men with weekly shopping list


What kind of meals are in the meal planner?

If you are looking for healthy, well balanced food your family will enjoy – this is for you! I work hard to make sure our family eats a mixture of vegetables (leafy green, orange, etc.), fruits, whole grain breads, and lean protein. Our family is working hard to only eat “real” food. I know that’s a funny term to those that have not heard it before {I mean you haven’t been eating fake food up to now have you!}.

Basically, “real food” means foods that are not heavily processed. All food should be naturally found (i.e. vegetables come straight from a garden, milk comes straight from a cow, whereas Bisquick comes straight from a factory that mixes ingredients – make sense?} sourced with 5 ingredients or fewer.

We pinch pennies! Groceries are expensive, so I work hard to provide my family with delicious, nutritious food while at the same time making sure it is affordable!

Take them or Leave Them?

You can follow our plan exactly or modify it to suit your families individual needs!

  • We make our own bread & granola. We do it as #1 a cost saving method and #2 to eat more healthily.  I’ll post more on our favorite bread machine recipes later . . . but here are 2 resources to get you started: My FAVORITE bread machine cookbook {I have the ebook on my ipad and use it daily! It has pizza dough, rolls, lots of different breads, and so much more! You can use whatever recipe you like, but it is safe to assume I am using one from this book} and Honey Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread.  
  • yogurt makerFor Granola you can make the super healthy granola or the simple and healthy granola. You choose.
  • We choose to eat fruits and veggies from the Dirty Dozen list organically. We know it costs extra, but by cutting out those 12 fruits & veggies we are cutting down our families exposure to harmful pesticides by 80%! You can of course buy non-organic or buy everything organic. You pick what works for your family’s budget.
  • We choose to buy mostly grass fed {always non-GMO} local meat. Again, this is more expensive. We would rather eat less meat and buy quality, good-for-you meat. But if you are pinching pennies or have to have steak more often this may not be affordable for you.
  • We make our own yogurt. It is so simple to make your own yogurt! And it only costs $.07 - $0.28 per serving {depending on whether you use the run-of-the-mill grocery story milk or organic non-homogenized 100% grass-fed cow milk} I LOVE our yogurt maker! It takes me about 7 minutes to whip up a batch and then it “cooks” for most of the day. So easy!
  • We have backyard chickens. To cut down on the ever-rising cost of eggs, we got our own chickens. Now we control what they eat. Our organic eggs average out to $1.25 a dozen.  for And just in case you are wondering, no we don’t live in the country. We have a less than .25 acre plot in suburbia. But more on our backyard chickens later.
  • We grow many of our veggies. Our garden started as a fun, educational activity. It is still a lot of fun, but it also helps us dramatically cut down on the cost of our summer veggies {by $600+} During the summer we have a thriving garden that stocks us with organic veggies. Again, we live on a small less than 1/4 acre in suburbia. It can be done! So my summer menus are filled with lots of veggies to make sure of our bounty. If you don’t have a garden, no worries. The supermarket has lots of fresh veggies and year-low prices during the summer. We can, freeze, or pickle our extra veggies to use during the winter.
  • We eat less. Since eating more “real food” and whole grains we've realized we eat less. But feel free to adjust portions to fit your individual family’s needs. We also don’t drink a lot of milk. {google it if and decide for yourself. We opted to try a balance approach} If you do, make sure to add that to your weekly grocery list. As is you will get about 1 serving of dairy a day.

August Meal Planner

In August home gardens are producing by the bucketful! Augusts' menu takes into account all the fresh veggies you have on hand to maximize savings! Our meal planner feeds our family of 5. With your homeschool about to gear up for the year I thought this was the perfect month to start with! So for all you busy moms out there – dinner is served {and you didn’t even have to plan it!}

{free} Weekly Shopping List Printable



First off, because I know you are going to ask, where is the Menu {free} printable?  I know I usually have free printables for everything! But I think it will be more helpful to you if you just read the menu {this post} on your smart phone. All the recipes are hyperlinked for your convenience! {This is how I am cooking now too}

UPDATE: Sorry folks, the shopping list says July (I'll fix it as soon as I can) but just know that it is really the August one =)

You can also pull up your shopping list from your smart phone, but I know sometimes it is easier to print this off to add your own notes {things you already have, add’l household supplies you need, etc.} Each weekly shopping list contains everything you need to make the recipes that week. Easy Peasy!
If you notice a mistake, please let me know so I can fix it. Thanks

Feedback

I’d love to hear from you if you used my meal planner. It does take a little longer to prepare like this than it does to just do for my family. But if it is helpful to you I’ll continue doing it!

Easy Homemade Jam

It's that time of year when our gardens and farmers markets are filled with flavorful, inexpensive fruit. You can easily make delicious Homemade Jam with 3 ingredients.

How to make Homemade Jam with just 3 Ingredients #recipes #garden #summer
One of the first things we did when we moved in about 5 years ago was to put  in fruit trees, berry bushes, and a garden. Not only do we save a lot of money, but it is a wonderful educational experience for our kids. They love picking their own produce and as a result are some of the best eaters I know!

This year we got LOTS of blackberries! We probably picked at least  20 pints so I decided to make jam. Homemade Jam with 3 ingredients

Homemade blackberry jam is AMAZING! And the best part – it is SUPER simple! You only need 3 ingredients: 2 cups mashed blackberries, 2 cups granulated sugar, and 1 teas lemon juice. Here is what you do:
mash the berries

Mash up freshly washed blackberries. I used a potato masher. 
boil the fruit

Boil blackberries, lemon juice,  and sugar for 10 minutes over medium heat.
pour into sterilized jars

Pour mixture in to sterilized canning jars. (Note: Dip clean jars & lids in boiling water for 5 minutes to sterilize) Wipe off the lip as residue will make it hard to open the lid.
Preserving Homemade Jam

Bring water to a boil. Put canning jars into boiling water making sure water covers the top of the jar by 1”. Boil for 10 minutes. 
when lids "pop" they are ready to be stored

Lift jars out and place on towel to cool. Make sure lids have “popped” and you can store the jam in your pantry for a year. If the jar does not pop down, put the jam in the fridge and use within a month. This recipe works with raspberries too.

Note: Blackberries and Raspberries have natural pectin in their seeds so there is no need to add any additional pectin to get a solid consistency. The jam will be thick and delicious without it!

Reading the Alphabet Review & Giveaway

One of my 13 favorite homeschool blogs is This Reading Mama. This Reading Mama (also known as Becky) is a trained teacher who shares some wonderful, fun, interactive, and super helpful tips for helping kids read.
Reading the Alphabet

This Reading Mama just released Reading the Alphabet for sale. This includes the complete  Reading the Alphabet ++ lots of extra material all packaged together for one convenient download.

reading letter T book

What is Reading the Alphabet?

Reading the Alphabet is a program to help you teach your PreK to read in a fun, age-appropriate way.

pocket chart letter T reading

What’s included in Reading the Alphabet?

Reading the Alphabet contains 30 lessons (the entire program is an astonishing 1300 pages).  Each weekly lesson includes a lesson plan, worksheets, readers, and more to help you teaching PreK children how to read in a systematic way. Your child will learn letter sounds, Phonological & Phonemic Awareness, learn basic CVC words, and practice number and fine motor skills.  The program was put together by This Reading Mama who has a M.Ed. in Elementary Reading.
Preschool Sight Word Maze

Who should use this?

It is intended for PreK children who know their letters and sounds, but are not yet ready for a fast paced, full-blown Kindergarten curriculum. So think 4 year olds or struggling Kindergartners.
Letter T Numbers 1-20 Activity

What did I think?

I think this is a robust program with lots of fun activities. You can tell This Reading Mama put a lot of time and thought into the program. And at only $10 – it’s a great price for us homeschoolers!

The only real downside to the program is there could be a lot of printing.  I highly suggest not printing all 1300 pages at once, but instead see what activities resonate the most with YOUR individual child and print those. You can always view the lesson plans right off your computer or ipad.

What does it cost?

You can buy this complete PreK reading program (including extra material) for only $10. This is a great price to get such a complete preschool reading program.
