Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 Week 46


Weekly Meal Plan Ideas sharing real food for real families. Save time and money by planning easy menus for your family.
Welcome meal planners! Another Monday has rolled around and we are less than two weeks away from Thanksgiving. We are fortunate in that my mom still makes a traditional Thanksgiving meal, and we bring a dessert or two and show up. Truthfully, it's my favorite holiday and time to spend with my immediate and extended family.

But in the meantime, I need to feed the family that lives here with me, and it's getting to be a challenge. Last week, I determined that were falling into the habit of eating out two to three times each weekend. Dirty secret - I LOVE to eat out. I love not thinking about a meal, ordering exactly what I'm in the mood for, having it brought to me, and cleaned up when I'm finished. Life doesn't get much better than that - does it?

Happy Monday meal planners . . . are you fan of "falling back" and the switch back to standard time? I love the first day, but the second day, which is also a Monday, is a bit tougher. I do love this time of year though, the feelings of family togetherness, snuggling in for a cozy evening at home.

Of course it also means school plays, holiday get togethers, shopping, visiting relatives and all the trappings of the holiday season. No matter what you celebrate, having a meal plan process in place can help alleviate your stress. Taking a few moments to think about how many nights you need to feed your family this week and what you need to do it, can free up your mind (and wallet) for other things.

Happy Monday meal planners! It's a chilly, dreary Monday morning around here, so I'm having a rare second cup of coffee while sharing my weekly meal plan ideas with you today. I hope you had a fabulous pre-Halloween weekend. We finally picked up a carving pumpkin this weekend, thank heavens they had a few left!

This is a pretty busy week for all of us around here. Between regular before and after school activities, we have Trick or Treating on Tuesday and Homecoming got moved to this Friday, from last week. In addition, we are celebrating a special milestone with some fabulous friends on Saturday.  John is still super busy with his top-secret work project, and I never know when he'll be home for dinner.
