Week 4 of the Just In Time Family Meal Planning Challenge

Having already stocked my freezer with main dish ingredients, I can prepare my weekly meal plan when I’m pressed for time.

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? This week, for my Just In Time Family Meal Planning Challenge, I’m sharing my make-ahead cooking strategy which is guaranteed to save me time in the kitchen and add some tasty dishes to our dinner menu. When you’re especially pressed for time or when you just want to get in and out of the kitchen extra fast, the meals I’ve got planned for this week will have recipes that take no more than 15 to 30 minutes to prepare.  I’ve replenished my pantry and I”m ready to add more meals to my freezer. Let me know if you like this and if it helps you out with planning your meals this week.

  1. Last week got away from me and I missed getting my meal plan up. But I posted it this week! So much easier with a plan. http://onceaweekcooking.com/menu-plan-for-220/
