Here’s What to Cook: Easing into September Dinners

September 2-6, 2019

Happy Labor Day weekend! We’ve gathered some ideas to help you plan a busy week. Beginning with Labor Day Monday ideas.

Easing into September: A weeknight dinner meal plan with mostly quick and easy but flavorful, healthy, dinner favorites. From easy wraps to baked potatoes, tacos and the ever-popular chili mac and cheese. Plus a seasonal treat I love!

It’s going to be a delicious week!

The kids in my neighborhood head back to school this week. Many are already there — and summer is ebbing and giving way to fall.

Schedules become busy, traffic gets heavier… and days begin to cool.

I love September! There is so much to celebrate! Football begins, the trees change, pumpkins emerge… and the holidays aren’t far behind.

Amidst all of that, we have to plan dinners to feed our people. We hope this helps!

Have a great week everyone!
