It’s that time of year when school is starting again for many of us.

That means on top of the usual meal planning, we have to get back into the habit of having food on hand for school lunches.

Two Week Meal Plan for August

Even though we have a couple of events (a date night and a wedding) coming up that mean I don’t necessarily need a full 14 days worth of meals, I plan for them anyway.  

We’ve missed out on events due to unforeseen circumstances plenty of times before, so I like to be prepared.

We also bought a whole hog and had it processed for the freezer.  This will be ready to pick up soon.  

We are looking forward to that delicious pork!

I don’t typically plan 14 breakfasts.  

With a toddler that doesn’t sleep well, I’m not up to getting up and making an early breakfast each morning.  

Right now we rely on cereal more than I’d like, but it’s that season of life for us and I’m letting it go!


  • sandwiches
  • salads
  • tortilla wraps
  • leftovers
  • fruit
  • dairy such as yogurt or cheese


These grill recipes have been a huge hit at our house lately.

Supper sides will be potatoes either cut into fries or cubed and seasoned, seasoned noodles, or seasoned rice along with fresh veggies and some artisan bread.
