There’s never a need to stress over “what’s for dinner” or “do I have everything I’ll need to make *that*” because you were prepared for the week and got everything when you […]

Menu Plan for October

I always find Halloween such a difficult night to prepare a meal. We want to carve the pumpkin, not make a mess of our costumes, and we’re so rushed and excited to run out the door for trick or treating to begin! Years ago, we’d order pizzas for friends and neighbors, but the pizza slices […]

October menu plan: dinners for your family this Fall

We’re finally dressing in jeans and long sleeves and the grill is (practically) packed up for winter. This weekend, my family ran over to Wick’s Ski & Sport for their annual consignment sale and Little is happily wearing her new-to-her ski jacket in 60 degree weather. We’ll see how long that lasts (the weather and […]

So often, people ask me how I keep the meal-planning rhythm. It’s a habit, I promise. And like all habits-in-the-making, it takes time to make it one for you. If you’re just starting out, you will need to push yourself to set aside the time each week to plan your meals. Remember, planning starts out […]

As I worked on updated last year’s October Menu Plan from last year, to make sure all the recipes were up to date, I reflected on how much I love this menu. It’s definitely one of my favorites because it includes the right mix of meal types–chicken, beef, seafood, pork, and veggie meals, mixes in […]

Family Meal Plan for September

It’s got to be a growth-spurt, but I am SO impressed with Little and her eating habits lately. She could not get enough of the Taco Chicken Bowls or the Rigatoni Peperanotano last week. And this week she’s asking for soup, soup and more soup. I love it when I make something and the kids […]

September Meal Plan

September, we hear you calling. You *want* us to pull out the slow cooker and start making chilis and soups, don’t you? Well, here at Julieverse, we did that a dreadfully hot Saturday night and enjoyed our first tastes of the upcoming season. And while I’d rather stick with grilling salmon and burgers and chicken […]
