In order to save money, I make a weekly meal plan so I know exactly what we’ll be eating every night and what groceries to buy. I am posting it here every week (as long as I remember…) to give an idea what sort of meals we eat. I divide the week into 1 red meat, 1 poultry, 1 seafood, 1 vegetarian, 1 soup, 1 pasta, and 1 pizza. The categories can overlap as long as I have at least one of each to keep things varied. We like to eat a lot of interesting and bold flavors.
We also have a “theme” week once a month where all of our dinners are from a certain country or region. This exposes us to new types of cuisine!
