Meal Plan Monday | Summer is Here!

I plan my family's dinners in five week blocks to maximize my savings at the grocery store and minimize my stress at dinner time. You can read more about my strategy here in my Q&A post here.

I also answered several more questions about how I plan my big ol' menus and how I shop for them.  For more Q&A (because you're just dying to know, right?), click here.


May is over, summer is here, and I'm looking foward to a more relaxed schedule over the next two months or so.

I have yet to plan a new 5 Week Meal Plan -- I want to put together one based around recipes from the gril -- but I did slap a meal plan together for this week. While summer might be here, my kiddos are still in school for another week or so and we've got plenty of busy nights ahead.

Here's what's for dinner this week:

Monday: Grilled Pizza (it didn't come out as pretty as Erin's but it was VERY tasty!)

Tuesday: Taco night!

Wednesday: Awesome Roast Beef and Noodles, salad

Thursday: Breakfast for dinner: pancakes, scrambled eggs, fruit

Friday: Grilled chicken, Grilled potato planks, corn on the cob

Saturday: Leftover cleanout!

Sunday: Mini Cheeseburgers on the grill, Macaroni Salad
