Homemaking, Weekly Meal Plan

Weekly Meal Plan {Feb 1-7}


This past week was our biggest success so far, I think, with some really amazing dinners that all of us enjoyed. Our new stove was delivered today (!) so I wasn’t able to go grocery shopping on my usual day. Instead, I will be going tomorrow.

If you would like to read what we’ve thought of the new dinners I’ve made in 2017, click here. If you want to see where most of the recipes are coming from, you can follow my dinner recipes board on Pinterest.

Here’s this week’s meal plan:

As a reminder, my goals are to 1) try lots of new recipes 2) use as many on-hand ingredients as I can 3) make delicious dinners for my family. ^_^
