Weekly Dinner Menu
With the launching of my new site design, I’m going to start something new and I hope you like it.
Everyone has been paying a little more attention to their budgets lately and one of the most quickest ways is to start eating at home more often. Families that eat together are stronger and closer.
What’s for Dinner? One of the biggest dilemas at dinner time and the number one concern is what to make. That’s the hardest part. If you’re anything like me and work full-time, unless you know what you’re going to make before you get home and the ingredients are waiting for you, you’ll either eat at 9pm or resort to take-out.
I’ve been browsing the weekly grocery store ads for awhile now and that helps me save money on groceries by telling me what’s really on sale, and most often the grocery store will have in-store coupons for extra savings.
What I want to do, is share my weekly meal plans with you. I’m going to figure out what’s on sale and show you what you can do with the ingredients. I hope you enjoy it.
