Have I mentioned I LOVE meal planning?! I used a lot of the same meals as last month because it was faster lets face it we have our favorites we could eat every.single.week… so they have to go in the menu at least once a month. :)

Has anyone started meal planning?

If so, how’s it going? I want to see your menus! Maybe it will give me some new ideas for next month. ;) Oh and if you’d like me to feature one of your recipes.. send me an e-mail!

Happy Friday!

    I love menu planning! It helps in both time, money and stress for me. I usually post my plan on Sunday evenings and even have a master plan of dinner meals (which I need to update) that are some of our fav 'go to' meals. That way when I am stumped for an idea, I can scan my list. :-) I'm impressed you plan the month!

    This is a great idea! I have been having a harder and harder time planning out what to make for dinner after work and this just might be what I need for our LARGE family of 10! Seems I am food shopping every day!

    Hopped here from UBP. I'm meal planning, too! Live by it. I do it weekly, though – not sure monthly is quite my speed. I just started blogging my weekly menus with links to recipes. I'll be back here for more ideas! Hope you'll stop by http://learnedhappiness.tumblr.com on Sundays and we can swap ideas!

    Great menu and I love how you do your plan for the whole month! I'm a menu planner too but haven't done it the last two weeks, just using stuff up from the fridge, freezer and pantry. I'll be getting back to my plans this week. I have a link to my menu plans over on MM's Missions.

    Have a great weekend! :-)
