I finally made my meal plan and grocery shopped. I decided I was going to try to shop for a month. This is the most time I’ve ever tried to shop for. I usually did once a week or every other week but I felt like I would spend too much money that way. I am now trying to shop for four weeks. It takes a lot of planning but I’m hoping this will work for us.

I thought I’d share the meals I’ve planned for the next four weeks.

“The dinner table is the center for the teaching and practicing not just of table manners but of conversation, consideration, tolerance, family feeling, and just about all the other accomplishments of polite society except the minuet.”

  2. *crosses fingers* That’s what I’m hoping!!! I have been epically failing as the cook of the house last couple of months. i’m trying to stay on top of everything.

  3. Great planning Erica! I’m impressed. How is it going so far?
