Meal Planning

Menu Plan #7

I love menu planning and seeing other’s dinner plans! I’m weird like that πŸ˜‰ As I’ve shared before, being in the kitchen is my happy place so I love finding meals that are new but I also never forget our favorites! These will link to the author’s original recipe unless it’s a family recipe and I don’t have it published yet!

How I Menu Plan and Build a Grocery List – Part Two

If you didn’t catch part one of this two part post make sure you check it out! 

Now that you’ve got your menu plan figured out it’s time to build a grocery list! I know some people have a running tally on their fridge or some scratch paper to know what they need but I never remember that list so I needed something I wouldn’t forget. Oh, and did you know there are people who actually can make a list in their head and stick to it? Plus remember everything that is on it? Shocked. I am not one of those. 

We use Evernote for our grocery list. Micah introduced me to this app and it has been so incredibly helpful for us! I can download the app on all my devices, all his devices, plus our computers, and they all sync together! No more adding things to a list while at home and forgetting it there. I can make my list no matter where I am. 

So, on to business! This is my method but I highly encourage you to find a way that works for you! Maybe you have no desire to hit several stores. Maybe you want your groceries delivered. Whatever it is – make a list, have a budget, and do your darndest to stick to it (we are still working on this one!).

This week’s menu is a little boring, sorry guys! We are trying to clean out the fridge before the long Easter weekend so there aren’t a whole lot of fun meals before hand and then we will be gone so no cooking/meal planning then either! 

My 10 Favorite Brunch Foods

Lots of people enjoy a good brunch and with Easter coming up so quickly I thought it would be a great idea to throw together a list of my favorite brunch recipes from around the web. 

Disclaimer: The links and pictures will take you to the original recipes so if you want to pin this entire post pin the collage otherwise to pin a specific recipe make sure you visit the original site! 

When I do brunch at home I like to make it buffet style so that there are a variety of choices and so people can munch as they please. In order to accomplish this I really need food that I can prep ahead of time so I’m not stuck in the kitchen the whole morning. I want to enjoy my brunch as well! 

How I Menu Plan and Build a Grocery List – Part One

If you’ve been around for any amount of time you know I love to share my menu plans for the week and if you know me in real life you know I’m a frugal shopper with lists galore! I used to be a couponer but with five kids and other obligations I pretty much stopped altogether a couple years ago. I still use the occasional coupon but nothing compared to what I did way back when. 

In order to make the most of our time and money I spend time each week making a menu plan and from that build a grocery list. I’ve used this method for the last seven more years and love so many aspects of it. So lets jump in and see how I make it work!
