Below is the beginning of monthly menu planning!  Yay me! Where ever it says, "recipe on mac", I have that recipe on my laptop (which just so happens to be a Mac, go figure). I am excited to try this type of planning. You will notice that the details about the days changed slightly, but the idea is the same. Some days say the "theme", but no actual meal.  I'll edit as I figure those out! :) The "code" DD means: "Dream Dinners", which is a prep-kitchen place we have here. I go once a month and put together 6 freezer meals.   I like trying things with ingredients I wouldn't normally buy, especially spices. It bugs me to buy a container of some spice that I only need 1/4 tsp of, and then never use the spice again. This way, there is no waste, so actually a savings! :)   I also like that someone else did all the slicing and dicing of the veggies and meats used in the meals. I just measure out the correct amounts, assemble the meal in a pan, and label the lid. All the instructions are right there! :)  Let me know if there are any recipes you're interested in - I'll either post the recipe or the link here for you. Do you and your family have a favorite recipe?  Please share!
