Meal Planning: Month of April
Updated: Sep 11, 2020
My goal is to start helping to make meal planning a bit easier for you all.
I know you all have fabulous recipes and family favorites of your own, but sometimes you just need to mix it up and get a few new ideas :)
Below is a basic guide to help you get organized. Especially in these challenging times when (maybe like me) you are only going to the grocery store once per week.
I've laid out an example of what a typical month looks like in our house for meals.
I would LOVE you to comment on what you are making and any favorites your family asks for time and time again :)
Monday ~ Hamburgers / Fries
Tuesday ~ My friend Jen's Enchiladas (recipe below)
