The PPP 2022 August Recipe Calendar is here and it is sooooo fun (I'm a wee bit excited about this one!)
In August, the carefree days of summer are slowly giving way to busy Back to School days, so to make our lives a little easier this fall we'll be doing a FIVE DAY FILL YOUR FREEZER Challenge. We'll stock our freezers that week and make some delicious meals to fill them up for the upcoming busy back to school nights!
So what even is a Fill Your Freezer Challenge? For 5 Days (beginning August 15th and going through August 19th) we'll fill our freezers with a whopping TWENTY FIVE FREEZER MEALS. Each morning on Facebook Live we'll prep the meals right along with you ~ your family will LOVE these meals!
Not up to 25 meals? (UM, I GET THAT!) Just pick one or two days to prep a few alongside us! Here's what we'll be making:
- August 15 – Freezer Meals Week 1
- August 16 – Freezer Meals Week 2
- August 17 – Freezer Meals Week 3
- August 18 – Freezer Meals Week 4
- August 19 – Freezer Meals Week 5
I'm going to prep a few for my kids to use for college – and they're easy to split into smaller containers if you don't need large portions. Make a few for your family, a few to give away to a friend in need, or one to take to a new mom. Don't let all the food intimidate you ~ I promise you will love having these ready to go for fall!
This little idea to share the calendar has become more and more fun each month, and adding in our new SIDES MENUS makes it extra special (we're still tweaking things a bit, but I think you're going to love it!)

Curious what we're cooking from this month? We'll be using the Summer Menu Planning Made Easy Box this month plus the Low Calorie Menu Box, the Freezer Menu Box, the LUNCH Menu PDF, the Slow Cooker Volume 1 Menu Box AND of course, the SIDES Menu Box (we picked this box because we wanted you to get to see how the new Sides Dishes Menu Box would work with each of them. I think you're going to love it!)
- LOW CALORIE
- SLOW COOKER VOLUME I
- LUNCH MENU (I am so excited about a week of lunch box meals this year!)
- NEW SIDES MENU
YOU DO NOT need all of our menu planning boxes to join us ~ if you're on the fence, just pick ONE BOX and see how it goes for you for the month!
We've got a LOT of yummy meals to choose from in August all packed into 5 happy weeks ~ bring on Summer!
You’ll find all the recipes for the August Recipe Calendar included in our PPP Meal Packs, BUT don't worry if you haven't purchased them yet. If you order now you'll also receive the PDF files for all recipe cards and grocery lists (we'll send them to your inbox RIGHT AWAY when you order, so you can start meal planning and join us even before your cards ship!)
Here's what to expect with the August Recipe Calendar:
We'll be making WEEK ONE of the Summer meal packs, WEEK ONE of the Low Calorie meal packs, WEEKS ONE THROUGH FIVE of the Freezer meal packs, WEEK ONE of the Lunch meal packs, and WEEK ONE of the Slow Cooker Volume 1 meal packs.
Here's a little sneak peak of a few of the recipes we'll be making:
- Garlic and Herb Pork Tenderloin
- Copycat Chicken Lettuce Wraps
- Hot Ham & Cheese Pinwheels
- Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs
- Grilled Chicken Teriyaki and Leftover Asian Chicken Salad
- Mason Jar Chef Salad
It is going to be just a lovely month of happy meals at home!
From now through September 4th, I'm challenging you to join me and make a dinner from the one of our Menu Plans every single day Monday-Friday for 4 straight weeks PLUS a HUGE FREEZER CHALLENGE on week 3. (I can't wait for the honey mustard grilled chicken, BLT pasta bowls, and strawberry pretzel salad. Those are just a few of my favorites!) I'll be making several of these on Facebook Live with you too this month ~ I am SO ready to get back on track and looking for an amazing month!
Note: the challenge is for four weeks, but each of our menu plans actually include a whopping 12 weeks of meals & desserts!
If you’re interested, you can also still get our Summer Menu Plans, Low Calorie Menu Plans, Slow Cooker Volume 2, Lunch Plans and Freezer Menu Plans in the PPP Shop. And don't forget, the SIDES menu plan is now available! These have all been VERY WELL LOVED, and with all SEVEN plans, you will pretty much have all your menu plans mapped out forever. 🙂
Whew ~ I think that's it! If you’re ready to actually make dinner at home, with your family gathered around and yummy, good-for-you food on the table, grab your Menu Plans TODAY and join us as we start cooking. I can't wait to start Cooking with you! After that, all that’s left to do is enjoy. Happy happy happy menu planning!
