August is here! This is my back-to-school month. Even though we homeschool, I take summers off (I’m old-fashioned if you hadn’t noticed!), and we start school at the beginning of September. This is one of my weeks for planning and preparing, so my notes for this week are simple, but here is the meal plan for your Mid-Century Menu Monday for August 10th to 16th!
