Monthly Meal Plans

This page has been created in response to some who have asked me to post my monthly meal plans.  Those close to me know that I am passionate about planning my meals by month.  Planning by the week may work better for you - or by all means, plan your entire month!  I do this because it works best for me and my family. 

We don't cook every night - we like to eat out with friends on Friday nights, and there are other nights where we are across town at a basketball game, or some other activity driven by someone in the family under the age of 16.

I also tend to "adjust" my meal plan a bit, based on what everyone is in the mood for.  Because shopping monthly gives me the flexibility to do this, it works for us. 

Stumped on how to fill each "slot" of the week with a fresh or new meal?  Hopefully by sharing my own meal plan with you - you'll be excited to start cooking!
