Weekly Meal Plans

MEAL

Each week, I create a meal plan for my family. I tend to make the same things for breakfast, in rotation. Lunch is either leftovers or “let’s see what I can make from the stuff in the fridge”. So these are dinners only. And sometimes, it’s just 6 meals instead of 7. And there are a lot of repeats. BUT! It may be helpful to have these ideas in the same place, with links to the recipes.
