Week 6 of the Just In Time Family Meal Planning Challenge

Posted on 05 March 2012 by noelskitchen

Planning a weekly menu helps you make the most of what you already have and serves your family delicious meals without spending a lot of money.

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? This week, for my Just In Time Family Meal Planning Challenge, I’m sharing easy meals created from what’s already on hand in my freezer and pantry.

Plan Your Meal By What’s On Sale!

As you’re writing out your weekly meal plan, remember that there are some items that are always going to be on sale at the grocery store. This month, college basketball’s March Madness, so there’s going to be lots of great deals on classic ballgame-watching foods–chips, dips, veggies, cold cuts for sandwiches, and ground beef.

Seasonal fruits and veggies items on sale: fresh strawberries, naval oranges, limes, lemons, cuties (kids love these!), avocadosasparagus, broccoli, green peppers and cucumbers .

Remember to keep an eye out for those extra coupons this week in your local grocery store ad on Wednesday.
