Menu planning and homeschool organizing go hand in hand, which is why I have been doing this 31 days of dinner ideas with you this year.
The area that I struggle with the most is dinner because my days are long this year. The Mr. has switched careers and with this new industry we get up at 4:30 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. for six days of the week.
Even when my schedule wasn’t as demanding, I learned early that by menu planning for longer period of times relieved the dinner time crunch.
Why 31 Day Menu Planning Rocks When You Homeschool
So my menus each month reflects my style, which is easy but they also reflect my family’s likes and dislikes.
Though I tried menu planning for 7 days, it was just was never enough. The next week was upon me before I had a chance to menu plan.
By planning for longer periods of times, I have more time during the month to plan and I really like cooking a lot more when I have a plan.
