    Monthly Meal Plan Inspiration (March 2020)

    Hi friends! We’ve been home for a few weeks now, cooking and cleaning all the day long (not really, but it kinda feels like it!). I thought I’d share what we ate in March in case you’re in need of a little menu inspiration.

    Our breakfasts are pretty much routine… Here’s what we usually have:

    • Monday: Oatmeal
    • Tuesday: Scrambled Eggs
    • Wednesday: Homemade Granola
    • Thursday: Oatmeal
    • Friday: Muffins
    • Saturday: Cereal
    • Sunday: Smoothies and Granola

    Lunch is usually leftovers, sandwiches, or quesadillas depending on what we have on hand. We’ve also been eating as much fresh produce as we can right now, trying to keep our immune systems boosted.

    I usually mix things up for dinner (except homemade pizza on Tuesdays and a crock-pot meal for Sunday lunch). Here’s what we ate in March if you need a little inspiration:

    1. Baked Potatoes (we keep it super easy after church Sunday evening)
    2. Chicken Enchiladas
    3. Homemade Crunchwrap Supremes
    4. Grilled Cheese and Homemade Tomato Soup
    5. BLT Sandwiches
    6. Homemade Zuppa Toscana Soup
    7. Taco Crescent Ring
    8. Chicken Enchilada Soup (lunch)
    9. Biscuits and Gravy
    10. Homemade Pizza
    11. Slow-Cooker Beef Stew
    12. Leftovers
    13. Out to Eat
    14. Breakfast (Buttermilk Pancakes, Scrambled Eggs, Sausage)
    15. Pulled Pork Sandwiches
    16. Grilled Cheese
    17. Homemade Pizza
    18. Grilled Hamburgers
    19. Dinosaur Eggs
    20. Spaghetti
    21. Breakfast
    22. Homemade Pizza
    23. Oven-Fried Chicken
    24. Homemade Pizza (yep, twice in one week!)
    25. Beef and Vegetable Soup
    26. Grilled Chicken Salad
    27. Taco Salad
    28. BLT Sandwiches
    29. Slow-Cooker Ribs
    30. Southwest Chicken Salad
    31. Grilled Hamburgers

    Mmmkay, there it is, friends… I know grocery shopping is a little tough right now with not knowing what will or won’t be in stock at the store. My hope is that seeing our menu from last month might give you a new idea of something to try (or something you haven’t made in a long while). I like to look back at old meal plans to see if there are any meals we used to eat all the time but got burned out on. Maybe this will do that for you!

    Let me know if you liked seeing this… I can do another round up from the month of April if you found it helpful!

  • NEW Sew Much Crafting Printables Shop

    NEW Sew Much Crafting Printables Shop

    Hi friends!!

    You may remember that we took a survey way back when, and so many of you shared that you would like to see printables in our shop.

    You may not know that Sew Much Crafting actually began as a printables shop in 2014 when our first baby was born. My husband and I both desired for me to be a stay-at-home mommy, and this business was born around the time Hannah (now five!) was born.

    After offering only printables for the first few months, so. many. people. requested that we print and ship inserts, so we dove head first into learning how to provide the best printed inserts on the market. From paper choices to machinery (believe it or not, we used to spend hours punching inserts by hand with a six-hole punch!), we have grown so much in the last five years.

    All that being said, we've decided to open a SEPARATE printables shop for those of our customers who live overseas (shipping is killer!) or who really, really prefer printable inserts. Our specialty is still printed inserts (and they're not going anywhere), but we want to offer printables for those of you who want them.

    Just a few things to note:

    • We did NOT get to all the inserts in all the sizes (we have over 300 items in our printed shop), but we will continue working to add more.
    • We did our best to format inserts correctly, but our sweet spot is printing inserts (and printables are VERY different). If you find a glitch with printing, please send me a message through our printable Etsy shop and we'll work through it.
    • We also designed the inserts assuming our printable customers would be familiar with printing inserts. These are designed to print with "short-edge binding" if you have duplex printer, so be sure to update your settings if you choose to print duplex.

    Please let me know if you have any questions! I've limited the quantity available in order to make sure things are running smoothly, so if you don't see what you're looking for, send me a message!
