Weekly Meal Plan May 26-June 2,2013

Posted on 26 May 2013 by noelskitchen

I have missed my organized house and kitchen.  We’ve been so busy focusing on our business and working with clients, I’m happy that things have finally settled down and are starting to balance out with the thrift store that I can be back in the kitchen more. I am also going to get back into couponing. Our stockpile is getting low and I need to replenish our shelves. This will be a fun way to see what meals will be on future menus, save money and get some great deals. We already get a lot of our pantry items like flour, oats and sugar in bulk and I like to make my own oat flour (simply grind oats in a food processor). I’m going to try out some new recipes using oat flour including a Oat Flour Chocolate Cake as our dessert for the week. I also added oat flour in the Flaxseed Carrot Apple Muffins I made.

Meal Plan

I meal plan at the beginning of each week. For me, it’s Sunday mornings (yes, even on Mother’s Day) when the house is quiet and everyone’s still sleeping. Even though I meal plan every week, (for many reasons I do-here is how I keep it simple) I try and manage a decent frugal grocery budget and not go to the grocery store on a weekly basis unless we need dairy products like milk. Weekly meal planning saves our family money, reduces food waste, and keeps us from the urge to say, “Let’s eat out!” If you are in need of more reasons to meal plan every week,check HERE. Cooking and eating together is a great satisfaction that often disappears with the busy schedules of families. Working outside of the home has always been a necessity for most adults these days and enjoying the food we create together is a way of connecting with one another.  Our kids cook dinner once-a-week and do the clean-up after the meal. If you want to learn how to pull that off at your house, check HERE.If you’re looking for more meal planning ideas, check HERE.

Suppers Your Family Will Love

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu.  I enjoy menu planning because of  the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to  have more free time to focus on my family and home. For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.
