The Frugal Table Meal Plan

It has been a crazy week! Totally being real here, Meal Planning Mommy a.k.a. Frugal Momma does not always have a meal plan ready to go! I know, I know... but "I am" the Meal Planning Mommy- right?

So last week was one of those weeks where I felt behind in everything! So the meal plan didn't get done... and each day I was doing what I hate to do... It was 4 p.m. and I was saying... WHAT IS FOR DINNER?!?

Seriously, meal planning has to be a priority. It makes each day of that week so much easier! It is one less thing to think about. If you have not sat down yet to make your meal plan for this week, do it now!

Sunday is a great day to plan out your week. Get out your calendar, your grocery ads, an idea of what you have in your pantry, and bring up Meal Planning Mommies. Search our archives and find some great recipes to try out this week! Chicken on sale at your grocery store? Type "chicken" in our search tool on the left hand side of the page and you will get tons of great recipes that use chicken.

Happy Sunday- take time to rest, renew and MEAL PLAN!

As a Nanny, I try to meal plan with the children I care for! One family that I worked for made this very difficult to meal plan, kids were able to eat what they wanted at dinner. So if they all wanted something different they got it! Drove me Crazy!
We are going to try your toddler Treats this week. Thanks for some great ideas

MMM, your zucchini cooks look yummy! For a while, I did such a great job planning our meals ..and then summer vacation hit us. (not like I didn't expect it, right?) Still, I haven't been planning meals and it's been a mess around here. I just wrote out this week's menu and I'm going to try really hard to stick to it! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
