Menu Monday Part 1 & a Freebie!

If there is one thing I love, it is sitting down at the end of a busy day with my family to share a yummy meal.  I should say, I love sitting down and EATING said meal…but getting it prepped, cooked, and on the table by dinner time night after night is not an easy feat!  Bu there is one little thing I have found that helps me more than ANYTHING else to guarantee I can provide that home cooked meal and quality family time without pulling my hair out.  Two Words:  Meal Plan!

That’s why this week, I am SO EXCITED to finally introduce a new feature to my blog:

Menu Monday Spending a little time at the beginning of each week creating my weekly menu and meal plan, I think, is the most important thing I do!  It saves me countless hours in the grocery store, helps eliminate dinnertime stress, and saves us lots and lots of $$$. 

And THAT’s a win/win/win for everyone!

AAAANNNNNNDDDDDD……because I already spend the time every week planning my menus, I thought I would share them here so you don’t have to!  That’s a win/win/win/win!

So here it is, in all it’s glory:
