Hey there, ladies and gentlemen. It’s August, you know. Like…end of the summer, eat tomatoes and zucchini out of your garden, buy some school clothes, stock up on 50 cent boxes of crayons, drink up the sunshine…August. It’s a pretty great month, I’d say. No complains from this girl. 

Excepting that my little twin boys (they are the youngest of my five kids) started kindergarten yesterday, and I can not seem to fix a little problem I’ve got with my eyes. Every so often they just tear up and spill emotion out over my cheeks. Because, I like my boys, you know. I like them a whole lot. I’ve had them all to my sweet self during the day for a while now, which is pretty spectacular. Even when they are a bit naughty, but especially when their nice. 

Thank goodness kindergarten is only 3 hours long…baby steps, you know.  The good news is, I’m going to have a little bit of free time on my hands, and maybe, just maybe, it won’t take me 5 days to answer your emails and comments. 🙂 

I have my August Menu Plan for you today. As usual, colored titles are links to previous posts. Black titles are recipes I’m working and hoping to post in the future.

  1. Jamie,
    Someone told me about your website and I am so excited about all the information and cooking ideas you have. I saw the monthly meal plan section and I am confused on what this is. I dont see a receipe for everyday. Please explain.

    Thank you and looking forward to visiting often.

  2. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    1. I’m not sure how to take you off the list from my end. However, if you look at the emails you are getting there should be a link at the bottom of each one attached to the word “unsubscribe”. If you click on that it should take you to a form where you can be removed from the list. Good luck!
