Weekly Meal Plan November 11-17, 2012

Happy Monday Everyone! We’re heading into that final stretch before the Thanksgiving holiday. I’m looking forward to having  the whole week off next week to enjoy time with family. I’m so thankful, I set aside some time this past weekend and planned my meals out for the week. My goal for shopping was to stick to a grocery budget of around $150. I went over $7.61. Not too bad but not exactly what I wanted either. But, we’ll eat well without a lot of hassle. The only thing I foresee buying in the upcoming week is milk. 

Yeah for meal planning! I’ve already got meals for the week in the freezer and tonight’s ready-to-bake in the fridge. 

My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:

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.
