I hope you had a blessed Easter with your family and friends. We took a couple of extra days off, and made a long weekend out of it, to visit my parents and relax a bit.
The two youngest colored eggs with granny, and hunted for Easter eggs full of money$$$. My mom stuffed us with decadent food, and we all went and saw the movie, The Case for Christ. Mom also had Easter dinner covered, so it was a wonderful break for me!
Can you find the Easter egg in this picture? 🙂
I'm so thankful I have plenty of food to feed my family, but it does get tiring to prepare dinner every day for our families, doesn't it? (Especially if we have a picky eater!) The prep for dinner isn't just chopping and cooking something, either. It includes planning the meals, shopping for the ingredients, and then finally preparing them. Sooooo, if you’re in need of some planning tools, I have several free printables to help you and me both! 🙂
Also, if the particular meal ideas of a certain week don't appeal to you and your family, click on my menu plans drop down tab to see hundreds of other dinner ideas to get you started in your dinner planning.
This one is a grocery list and menu planner in one, and is my favorite. I love having my shopping list categorized by sections of the grocery.
This style lets you plan all three meals and snacks for 7 days.
