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 stockpile shop the weekly sales with coupons; my goal is to get the best deals on items for my monthly menu plan for the lowest cost. For more Q&A (because you're just dying to know, right?), click here.
+++++++++++++++++++++++Here's my menu plan for this week - taken from my monthly menu plan for March - with recipe links and a link to a printable grocery list. I've also included (2) recipes for items I'll be baking this week in case you'd like to try them yourself.
Last week, I was under the weather with a stomach bug and my hubs was traveling for work so I didn't get around to making the Savory Chicken & Dumplings. I put it on my menu plan again this week because my youngest has been begging me to make him his, "treasure soup". It is yummy!
I hope you find it useful!
