A lot of families are headed back to school at this point – whether it’s in-person, virtual or some hybrid version. Which means more focus from the parents in these situations. Meal Planning can be such a stress reliever. Not having to think about what you will make for dinner each day can make things so much easier. Being able to make a grocery list and one trip to the store for the whole week – so much easier. This week’s meal planner is going to be a hit in your home!
Each week I will be sharing one Weekly Meal Planner each Sunday to help you get a jump start on your meal planning. I also want to provide you with the blank version of the Meal Planner so that you can make your own menu using other recipes (egads!) than those from my cookbook! Maybe even incorporate some of the free recipes I provide right here on this blog

All of the full recipes for these meals are found in the cookbook. As mentioned in the cookbook, you can easily create weekly mean plans by simply selecting a recipe from each of the five categories in the book:

Some people take it a week at a time – some people just pick 7 dishes for a week and then eat them as they decide that’s what they want. None of these methods are wrong. The only way to go wrong with meal planning…is to not do it!
