So, how did your week of meal planning go? I can tell the more I do this, the better I get at it. I definitely like doing breakfast and lunch, I just print this list off and put it on my refrigerator and before each meal I just look at it! So easy.

Meal Plan for the week of February 15th
This is the week of beef. My husband requested pot roast. So, I am doing about a 4-5 lb. roast, (I am using our deer roast, but you can use beef), and it will be enough to get about 4-5 meals for us, plus one freezer meal (empanadas). I will be posting the Pot Roast, French Dip and Beef Stroganoff recipes this week.
