The Proof & the Potatoes: Meal Plan (Pt. 3)



The following is our 10 day meal plan. Please scroll down to the other two posts to see the grocery list and the method behind the budget mania! If you like what you see and would like recipes, please let me know!

There will be certain items that you find yourself making almost daily from scratch. If you have not yet memorized the measurements, print or write out the recipes on one page and have on your refrigerator next to your meal plan. (This should also be printed out and hanging on your fridge or another spot that is easily accessible)

If you are packing a lunch for your husband, as we do, plan to set aside some of the meal from the night before for his portion the next day. I also add some fruit, tea bags/mug, and cut up veggies. Since we homeschool, the lunches mentioned are provided for them and myself during the day.

WOW great menu! I am suddenly having a hard time because I am realizing I have to double many of my recipes because 2 of the boys eat more than I do! It is getting expensive...your grocery list isn't bad...I'm impressed!

I really need to start doing this again - keeping better track of our grocery budget. Seems that is the area that can either kill us or save us some money! Thanks for the motivation, Angel!
