It’s Monday–time to share our dinner-time game plans for the week! A little effort with meal planning at the beginning of the week helps me to provide my family with nutritious, budget-friendly meals, and also allows me to get my act together when our family’s headed in several different directions.
I’m hoping to start some cookie baking this week, so I tried to plan for a few simpler dinners to help ease the load. I’m also working on using up some of the items I have stashed away in my freezer. It’s a great way to help cut my grocery budget while I’m Christmas shopping, and make sure food doesn’t go to waste.
Here’s my plan for this week:
Wednesday: Chicken and Gnocchi soup (Olive Garden copycat recipe…sooo good!), homemade bread
Friday: Ham in the crock pot, au gratin potatoes, green beans
Saturday: Meat loaf, mashed potatoes, peas
Sunday: Turkey & gravy over biscuits (frozen leftovers from Thanksgiving), fresh fruit & veggies
How about you–what’s on your menu this week? Do you have any tips for meals on busy nights? Join the conversation in the comments or on Facebook!
