menu plan monday

The first back-to-normality Monday of the year. And, for me, the first one in three months or more! 9 weeks ago I had my fifth little one by unexpected c-section, so between end-of-pregnancy weariness and c-section recovery, I have been out of routine for a long time.

So here’s to the first week of the new plan for the new year with the new baby! I have some great posts planned for the next few months, including progress updates on my healthy habits and also some homeschool hot-lunch ideas.
