Meal Plan Monday

I entered a meal plan on my google calendar to rotate every 4 weeks (or until I decide to change it since I will be trying new recipes as well). I know it would be smarter to meal plan based on weekly flyers but when I am back to work full time with 4 kids I just don't see it as a realistic plan.  So if I know what types of foods I need for my meal plan I can stock up when I see sales (hopefully). I have also put in the recipes in my google calender but all the recipes I have pinned on my Food & Drink board on pinterest. (Excluding things like tacos or Uncle Ben's rice).  I use my playbook with the google calendar to read the recipe and I don't have to print it off then and I don't have to store recipes.

Monday: Meatballs and Roasted Cauliflower

Tuesday: Crock Pot Cream cheese chicken

Wednesday: Uncle Ben's Rice and Veggies

Thursday: Tacos

Friday: French Toast

Saturday: Spaghetti

Sunday: Grilled Cheese

I say go with what works best for you.

I've found Pinterest helpful for pinning recipes that I want to try.

thanks - that is what I was thinking, and it's easy enough to stock up on more expensive things when I see sales
