You never know how much you rely on some things -until you run out! This month was tricky for me as I began to plan out my menu and realized that I'm out of wheat! I didn't realize how much I used it, until I tried to plan my monthly menu without it! ...I even had to buy store-bought pita bread- hmmp! (yuck!) ...I confess, I'm spoiled! :-)

This month, as a special back to school treat, I let the kids help me plan the breakfast and lunch menus without much strictness (nutritionally speaking). ...Just in case you can't believe corndogs are on my menu! (I can't either btw!)
