Cooking up a mental vacation...

weeklymealplan Weekly Meal Plan with Printable Grocery List   6/18

For years I have been stressing over the menu planning/grocery shopping issue and struggling each and every week to come up with something.  The result is a late Sunday-night shopping trip to get us through just a couple of days, followed by rather expensive eating out the rest of the time.  It has become a vicious/expensive cycle.  We need to keep to our grocery budget - and reduce it if we can.

Today I came across the $5 Dinners website, and it is like the heavens opened up and the angels sang...  Not only does this awesome lady post recipe after frugal recipe, she creates a weekly menu AND has a handy-dandy shopping list creator - for each and every menu.  Just click the items you actually need and print.  The archive goes back for ages, and it is all for free.

I am taking a well-deserved break from the menu-planning department!  And go figure, I found the site through a recipe link from a 'Camping with Kids' Pinterest Board, linked from the Handbook of Nature Study site.  Some days I really love where a rabbit hole leads to...
