Did you wonder what happened to me and the weekly meal plan? I was away for a few weeks in Arkansas for my niece’s wedding and after taking a little “recovery” time, we are back into our routine and ready to roll!
Meal planning makes such a difference in our week. I found that without one, we were basically having all-day discussions about what we were going to have for dinner.
You might have these conversations in your house – What do you want to have for dinner? I don’t know. What do you want? I don’t know.
Not only that but we were spending a LOT more money on food! Planning it out ahead of time really helps us make the best use of our food and avoid waste.

YOUR GUIDE TO THE MEALS IN MY MENU PLANS:

I’m also planning extra simple meals on Saturdays and Sundays so that we truly can take a Sabbath and spend some time focusing on family and fun!
