Since next Saturday is Christmas Eve, I won’t be posting my regular menu plan right away. Instead, it will come on Monday. For that reason, this week’s plan has a couple of extra days added into it so I can do all of my shopping this next week.
Make sure that you download/print your forms: Weekly Menu Planner and Weekly Shopping List. Each week I have one special recipe that is provided to me by The Moms Resource called Penny Pinchin’ Picks!
If the recipe is available on line, I have directly linked it for you. If it’s my own recipe, I’ve included the details as well. Keep in mind that the meals I select are based upon a combination of what I might find on sale combined with items from our pantry/freezer.
Keep in mind that I keep my life simple. I am a busy mom of 3 kids and to be honest, cooking is not something I love to do. I cook because I have to. So, these meals are planned around the simplicity that I look for when it comes to trying to figure out what to make for dinner.

Thursday: Dine Out
Friday: Grilled Paninis
