Meal Planning Made Easy {Printable}

I hate meal planning. It’s hard.

Hard to come up with a variety of meals that will please the whole family.

When I do make a meal everyone likes, I add it to my “online collection”,

Tried and Tasted Recipes.

Nothing fancy about it, just recipes I’ve tried and tasted and liked.

Now I have a group of  recipes, BUT being who I am (needing organization) – I created a sheet to meal plan with, and I’ve got to say, it has made planning that much easier. And it saved me money, seriously. Usually when I go the grocery store I end up buying something I don’t need, or forgetting why I put something on my list.

Does this happen to you?

Anyway, I’ve got to say I love this sheet, and I’ve uploaded 2 versions (Meal Planner – Horizontal and Meal Planner – Vertical) for you to use.

Having the meals laid out, is making life easier, I have no stress at 4 o’clock wondering what to make.


So, what was on my Meal Plan this week?

Monday – Creamy Macaroni And Cashew Cheese

Tuesday – Quinoa Patties with Kale Salad with Toasted Coconut

Wednesday – Ravioli with Sage-Walnut Butter

Thursday – Kung Pao Chicken

Friday – Thai Red Curry Shrimp

Saturday – Penne with Green Beans, Potatoes, and Pesto

Sunday – Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

How do you meal plan?

    I’m bad about meal planning – I just don’t plan ahead! But I always have ingredients on hand to make our favs, so it usually works out. Tonight is beef stew in the crockpot with ‘homemade’ classic white bread in the bread machine. yeah, I’m totally cheating ;-)

      I made some changes and they were great. Thicker sauce.
      I changed the amount of Almond milk to 3 cups. I actually added 2.5C to the pot with oil. With the other .5 C, I added it and the Cornstarch to a jar and shook it up. Once the oil/milk started boiling I added it to cornstarch mixture and simmered all of it for 5 mins.

    Everything looks delish! My penne with sweet potatoes and arugula was yummy too! We will do that again. And it was super easy. I am just starting to meal plan. Just posting the recipes with links is helping me get organized – all the recipes are quickly at hand that way.
