    You’re calendar days are wrong! The first is tomorrow, Thursday! You scared me for a second. Haha

    Thanks for including my chili recipe! Hope you love it! I used to plan menus monthly and this makes me think I need to get back to it, especially with baby #3 arriving in a few months. Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to check out some of these recipe links. :)

    Hope you like the manicotti and pancakes! I really need to do this, make a menu. The few times I’ve planned even a week it’s made a huge difference.

    I saw your post on Craftomaniac Monday and your blog is just beautiful, I’m so glad I found it! I love the colour scheme and everything about it :). A monthly menu is something I always do as I do a big bulk grocery shop at the beginning of the month to save money and knowing what my meals will be always helps! But my menu is definitely not as pretty as yours ;)!

    I love that you plan for the whole month. Not too long ago I started planning weekly. My ultimate goal is to be this organized. Thank you for sharing your menu:)
