menu plan monday sept 8-14

Finished out bagel week with some yummy homemade strawberry jam courtesy of my friend Wanda. It is sooooooooo good!!! 

She also gave me a jar of figs and pepper relish. We are really enjoying it!! Thanks again friend!!! :0) 

Breakfast- this week we are doing smoothies. I cut up and bagged some fresh fruit for the freezer. I'll just have to add milk,  juice or yogurt to the prepackaged fruit for a quick smoothie each morning. I found lots of great smoothie recipes on Pinterest that I'll share tomorrow.
