How is meal planning coming along for you? Is it enabling you to stick to your grocery budget? Isn’t it awesome when 6:00 pm rolls around and there are no questions about what’s for dinner. What is your favorite kind of recipe? Something you can make in the crockpot, simple and easy, etc.?
If you’re new to meal planning, take a minute to read step by step how to meal plan. It really is super easy and I walk you through it with lots of resources. And, we would love for you to linkup and share your meal planning tips.
Here is what I am feeding my family this week.
Ranch Chicken- this is baked and looks very tasty. Simple and short ingredient list. Served with a dinner salad and rolls.
Baked Puerto Rican Chicken- so easy, just three ingredients. Served with rice and steamed veggies.
Breakfast for Dinner- I moved my menu around a bit last week so I could make the Sesame Ginger Chicken, so we still have bacon and eggs on hand to make this week.
Crockpot Ravioli- super easy. Served with fresh fruit and a dinner salad.
Hot Dogs- served with baked tater tots. We are going to have a few warm days here in North Texas this week. We’re going to grill.
Leftover Buffet- use ‘em up!
