In our house we have a separate calender just for evening meals. I try to plan at least two weeks ahead and anyone can look to the calender and know what will be for dinner. I find that this helps me to then plan my weekly shopping list, keep to the list and make our tight budget go further. When i shop i keep to the list and then save money. I also have found that we eat a ton healthier cause it keeps us from having quick, expensive premade foods that are chocked full of preservatives, salt and no good things.
I have a variety of recipes, and i love to read cookbooks and try new things. I'll try to cite what i can when i can. Enjoy!
