Menu Planner

In my experience, the hassle with meals is not the cooking…the stress is from trying to dream up what to cook!   So, I’ve created 12 weeks of menus for our family.  Each week has more ideas than what you will need (so you can skip/delete some).   Each set includes at least the following:

  • One Chicken dish
  • One Beef dish
  • One Pork dish
  • One fish/shellfish dish
  • One Tex/mex dish (big at my house)
  • One Pasta dish
  • One Vegetarian dish
  • One Pizza
  • One Soup

I’m adding a new week’s recipes one month at a time.  Download the latest version of my weekly menu planner
