One of the things I like the least that I have to do weekly is meal planning. It takes me FOREVER.
As part of being more organized this year, I decided I would make a weekly menu and make it cute! That will make meal planning more fun, right?
It helps me to have specific types of meals to plan for each day. I also put a spot for breakfast and lunch because I base my grocery list off of the menu.
Mine looks like this:
Mondays are crockpot meals. (This is one of my busiest days so the crockpot makes it so I don't have to think about dinner prep!)
Tuesdays are Soup/BBQ. (Soup if it's cold-BBQ for warm days)
Wednesdays are brinner. (Breakfast for dinner)
Thursday is Pinterest recipes (new or favorites-I usually try to pick a new one)
Friday is vegetarian meal. (makes the weekly grocery bill a little less expensive)
Saturdays are Pizza. (Usually homemade but not always)
Sunday we like to have a large super yummy dinner. Almost holiday style, but not quite. Just a time to gather around a super delicious meal and enjoy one another.
I have an extra box for extra things to make throughout the week. Bread and chicken stock are typically here. As well as special treats like cookies and what not. :)
Here are some plain printables in lots of colors if you want them! They don't have categories or anything so you can fill it out to your needs. Enjoy!
