For those of you that do not have young children, the title is a play on a segment of the Bubble Guppies. Bubble Guppies is a popular children's show on Nick, Jr. It happens to be my youngest child's favorite show, so we watch it a lot!
This post is about our family's dinner meal plan, including what we ended up eating in August and what I have planned for September. I like to plan dinner's for the whole month. I do the majority of my grocery shopping once a month to help us stay (at least close) to our grocery budget.
Life happens and plans change. Here is a before and after of our August meal plan. The black marker was the plan. The blue marker are the days that changed (or sometimes I filled in what we ended up eating on a special occasion). The red are the family activities we ended up doing. Check my August post to see my goals here. We didn't do all I planned. My husband had a very, very busy month at work and was gone lot. Consequently, I was pretty worn out by dinner time and just wanted to check out. Hopefully, September will be a better month for my husband and we can do better about intentional family activity/ play time.
Date night was super fun this month. I wrote a blog post about it. Check it out here and see what we ate.
Here is what I have planned for September.
Family Play Activities I plan to try this month:
- Bowling at home working on number recognition
- Hyperdash game working on color recognition
- Dance party
- Ball rolling
What are you planning to eat this month? What about family play/exercise? If you would like some help getting started with Meal Planning, just contact me.
