Weekly Menu Planning September 2021

MidwesternerTT | Aug 27, 202111:42 AM     418

Let’s use this thread to share concise weekly dinner menus for each week in September. It's helpful if you can include your location and how many people you are feeding. Links to recipes are always appreciated, and sources help.

With the start of school and return to in-person work at offices for some, plus cooler weather by month-end, the rhythm of meal preparations changes. Will you try once-a-month or once-a-week cooking? More meals using slow-cooker or instant-pot? Planned leftovers for lunches, or more meals out?

Planning meals helps make sure groceries get used and reduces stress amid the ever-changing guidance on best ways to stay healthy, and the surprises (some happy, some not-so) of daily family life. We all know plans can change, so it’s fine (practically expected) when your week gets rearranged from your posted plan. You may choose to report actuals for the prior week to share ideas with others.

The August discussion is still available for reporting the last week and follow-ups.
