I started planning weekly menus just over a year ago, about when I started this blog. It has been SUCH a good decision for our family. I have managed to gather together a collection of recipes that we love and a few easy recipes for those tough days. I rarely spend the afternoons wondering what is for dinner that night. I save money by stocking up on items that we often use when they are on sale, and we (generally) eat more nutritiously.
You can find menu plans for most of last year on this blog… and menu plans from January on at my other blog — Melody’s Menus. It hasn’t been updated in the past few weeks either… but it still has some recipes that we love on it. I’ve been a little burned out on menu planning lately… but I am excited that May 1 marks the opening of the Farmer’s Market here. I can’t wait for summer produce and meals where supper is just whatever meat we found at a good price and lots of fresh vegetables! (And I am even happier that I can look back and see what recipes I used last summer and make them again!)
