  1. I make a month's menu and most of our meals are two day meals... I have 6 kiddos at home now, a Father in law plus my husband and myself....5 of our kids take leftovers for lunch too (they do not like sandwiches). Our home is busy with Basketball and church activities as well... I have to plan months at a time otherwise we will spend more on Groceries than we can afford.

  2. What I was going to say... was so if you have anymore ideas for meals please let me know... I like to change it up and the kiddos like it too. We eat alot of pastas and lentil meals. I love using beef and pork roasts in the crockpot but am ALWAYS looking for something new!

  3. i like how you are doing the freezer meals. i never thot about doing it that way, i was going to do a "day of cooking" and tbh it was REALLY daunting to me. i'm not much of a cooker so the thot of a day or even a half day was enuff to keep me pushing it back. totally trying this idea!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love hearing from you!
