While perusing the great blogs out there I came across a great new meal planning tool for you to use. Below are links to Meal Planning Mommies one and two week, and one month meal planners.
If you plan breakfast, lunch, and dinner for one week at a time the one week planner will work best for you.
Click here for a week-long planner.
If you plan lunch and dinners for two weeks at a time, you would use the two week planner.

If you are one of the few who are able to tackle a whole month’s meal plan at a time, we salute you, and then we offer you the month-long planner. 🙂

Meal Plan for the week of February 22nd
I got a great deal on quick-dated milk at Aldi on Saturday, so I got a gallon of whole milk for $1.29. That is why I have a few meals that call for heavy cream or half and half – in the first part of the week! I am subbing in the whole milk, since that is what I have and it is a little healthier without a difference in taste!
(Lunch) PB&J, Apples, and TGIF Potato Skins!
(Dinner) Tomato Basil Soup (I omit sugar, saute a sliced white onion in olive oil first, use whole milk instead of cream and use dried basil), grilled cheese
Monday: Bowtie Pasta with Sausage, Tomato & Cream, homemade rolls
Tuesday: Black Bean Tostadas, green salad w/ tomatoes
Wednesday: Pasta e Fagioli Soup (I use canelleni or white northern beans, add 1/2 cup each of diced celery and carrots, and you can use any small pasta, I use ditalinni), homemade rolls or bread
Thursday: Apricot Pork (I put this in a slowcooker with pork loin or shoulder), brown rice, green giant veggie mix (from freezer), homemade rolls
Saturday: – I’m gone to a retreat, and will leave them with frozen pizza!
Turkey/Ham Sandwiches, fruit, chips
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, sliced apples
Leftovers – Pasta, and Soups
breakfast burrito (egg, cheese, & salsa)
frozen sausage balls, frozen biscuits,
friendship bread, blueberry smoothie
cereal, sliced apples
homemade waffle sticks (freezer), bananas
egg sandwich w/ cheese
oatmeal, whole wheat toast, sliced apples
