What's for Dinner? and Printable


New this week is a printable weekly dinner menu. It's a handy 8x10 size in case you'd like to frame it and use it as a dry erase menu board. All you need to do is put in the dates at the top, fill in your main courses and sides for each day. As an added plus, there's a spot to note leftovers you have from last week so you can incorporate them this week, and another spot to note leftovers from this week for next. Find out about the benefits of meal planning.

  5. The template, good idea! I keep telling myself I need to prep for the week–the weeks I do are so much smoother.

    1. Thank you! :) I got two nights off this past week since we ate out while having no stove/oven. You're right, though, I need to get some frozen pizzas and take a break more often!
