Menu Plan Monday ~ Feb 25/13


Hi friends, how was your week?  I have zero, zilcho food pictures to share with you this week.  I seriously give it up to all you food bloggers out there who can cook up a yummy dinner each night AND take great pictures of it all.  I obviously don’t know the secret lol.  By the time dinner is ready I’m so hungry I’m gobbling it up right away.  Not to mention the horrible lighting in the evenings.  Sigh.

I’ve really been enjoying going through the MPM links each week.  I’ve seen a lot of new faces as well and just want to give a big welcome to you all.  Thank you everyone for sharing what you’re eating each week and by doing so helping others put together a menu plan for their families.  It’s just one big love fest isn’t it?

Menu Planning Resources:

Despite my lack of pictures, I do have two amazing resources to tell you about.  First up is this awesome collection of 5 ebooks for $7.40.  Serving your family “real food” is important, but how do you do it without breaking the budget or sacrificing taste? This week’s bundle includes the resources you need to eat delicious, whole foods on a budget. Packed full of recipes and tips, it’s sure to be a go-to resource in your kitchen. And this week only, get all 5 ebooks for just $7.40 (a savings of almost 90%)!, 5 eBooks for $7.40!

Next, keeping in line with the real food theme, my friend Laura from Heavenly Homemakers just released an online eCourse, all about creating a real food kitchen.  I’ve checked it out and thought it was great, not to mention nicely organized 🙂  Laura has broken down everything you need to know to get started, and put it into a simple, step-by-step eCourse to guide you along in the journey.

This eCourse is online, but can be printed if you choose.  Work through the eCourse at your own pace, at any time of the day or night!  Once you purchase, you will have unlimited access to all of the pages, recipes, worksheets, printables, videos and information- forever!  That way you can go back and review information and regroup as needed.  Cost for this eCourse, which includes five thorough lessons is only $5.00.  Click on the banner below to check it out.


Hope you have a terrific week!

    I hear you about the photos – I find it challenging to cook and snap pics at the same time. Need to spend some more time looking through everyone’s MPM b/c I’m running out of ideas, as I mention in this week’s MPM post!

I’ve been trying to plan dinners for the month as we live on a fixed income so when I find good recipes I make more than one and freeze some for the future.. Thank you for posting these! 🙂

    Thanks for hosting each week! I love all the food pictures in the links and sometimes find things I want to try based on the pictures alone but I am rather horrible at taking the food pictures myself. My family also tends to give me rather strange looks when I do remember to take pictures.

    Hello, just purchased your offer… thank you. And thanks for telling me what I am gettting, but also what it is NOT! That is great. When it comes to “help” we think it is going to be what we feel we are in need of or looking for.
    I have just begun the journey of learning to eat healthy. Sounds good huh? I have realized I first need to understand for me, what “healthy” means.
    I look forward to the books.
    Also, I checked out the website and it is now on my “come back” listing, just as yours is.
    Keep the joy, fun and true information coming. Blessings to you.
