Menu Plan Monday ~ Nov 19/12
Hello friends and a happy Thanksgiving week to all my US neighbors! I hope you enjoy your holiday and all the delicious food that seems to come with it. Can’t wait to see what you’ll all be dishing up :)
For those that might not have caught it, I wrote a post last week that you might find helpful called Holiday Menu Planning 101. Plus there you can pick up my free Holiday Menu Planner printable as well. The week of a big holiday is when you need to menu plan more than ever, don’t be tempted to skip it!
Last week I also posted a delicious recipe for Candy Cane Cheesecake. Go check it out, it’s so good!! I’ve got one sitting in my freezer right now and it’s driving my daughter crazy, she wants to eat it so bad :)
How to Meal Plan Resource:
For those new to menu planning or even for those just struggling to figure it all out, I’ve got a fantastic new resource to tell you about today. This How to Meal Plan, A Step by Step Guide for Busy Moms ebook is written by Crystal VanTassel, a long time Menu Plan Monday participant, and is a great ebook to help you get dinner on the table every night. Of course it won’t actually prepare your meals for you but it does provide tips, recipes and printables to get you going. I honestly think menu planning is one of the first places to start on your organizational journey but I know it’s not easy for everyone to implement. Whether you are a menu planner newbie or simply need a menu plan refresher, this ebook can help!
