Menu Plan Monday

I really love planning my menu every week and I know how vital it is to staying healthy and staying on budget so I'm going to be even more specific w/ my menu plans and hopefully be more helpful. I'm now going to include our snacks and how much I spent at the grocery store. B/c I'm always more inclined to cook something that has a picture I'll try posting pictures of the recipes I share. I hope this will be encouraging to anyone that is wanting to cook at home and be healthy and frugal.

I used to try and plan our meals and snacks. I need to get better about doing that again. I also want to start changing what we eat for more healthy less processed versions. I admire you for being able to keep up with everything!
