Every week we’ll be inviting an FBC member to put together a menu plan based on recipes from their blog. A week’s worth of dinners from Sunday to Saturday. We’ll include a printable shopping list so you can get everything you need and be ready to cook and you’ll get introduced to some new recipes and meet some great new blogs!
We’re kicking it off this week with Cindy from Hun…What’s For Dinner? Take it away Cindy:
I started meal planning years ago, when I became tired of standing in front of the fridge, with the door open, trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Though meal planning has fallen to the way side, as of late, I have noticed an increase in our grocery bill and extra trips to the store for forgotten ingredients. Having a meal plan is a great way to keep your grocery budget down and to limit last minute runs to the store.
When I do meal plan, I plan for 1 meatless meal, one day for leftovers and try to let my children choose dinner for 1 day a week. They love helping choose and it makes them feel like their voices are being heard.
Sunday – Grilled Maple Dijon Pork Tenderloin serve with sweet potato hash
Monday – Grilled Family Favourite Chicken serve with sautéed broccoli and mushrooms (use leftover chicken for taquitos on Wed)
Wednesday – Chicken Taquitos (using leftover chicken from Monday), serve with veggies and dip
Thursday – Free for all (we tackle the leftovers that are in the fridge)
Saturday – Vegetable Ratatouille serve with Naan bread
