Weekly Menu No. 21

This week sure has been another busy week for this crazy bunch. Ethan’s recovering from being sick, Kira had her professional photos taken on Tuesday and then we were in full-on hockey tournament mode. So, yeah, I’m slacking. This weekend, I spazzed and forgot to make the menu. But don’t fret, I’ve quickly put together […]

Weekly Menu No. 15

Wowsers, just one more week before Christmas and I still have so much to do. There are presents to be wrapped, stockings to fill, cookies to bake and let’s not forget I still have to grocery shop. This week’s menu is pretty simple; we are incorporating some new kid-friendly meal suggestions all while still using […]

Weekly Menu No. 12

Keeping our grocery budget to a minimum has been an easier task for me lately; though I have to admit that I’ve had a lot of help from my family. With the help of eMeals and $5 Dollar Meals, we’ve managed to make full complete meals that left our bank account happy and kept the […]

I recently joined $5 Dollar Meal Plans, and with their free trial, I received the $150 Costco Meal Plan. The plan described that you could make 22 complete dinners for $150. Are you kidding me? That works out to be less than $7 a Meal. I did not think this was possible but decided to give […]

Meal Planning With eMeals

Back to Basics Weekly Meal Plan No. 9

This week, we are skipping the fancy schmancy meals, and we are getting back to the basics. What exactly does this mean? Well, we’re ditching the meal recipes and only using items that we have on hand, stocked in the fridge, freezer or cupboard. Ha, why would we ever do this? I’m not crazy. I […]

Why I Meal Plan.. Weekly Menu No. 8

We are now heading into the 8th week of meal-planning, that’s 35 family dinners that we made at home. I can’t even tell you when this had ever happened before in our house. Previously, meal-planning never occurred to me; we were more about what was simple and what was convenient for our busy family. It […]

Weekly Meal Plan No. 7

Last week, we didn’t get to make all meals on the plan.  We were busier than we anticipated and with an out of town hockey game in the middle of the week, our menu plan shifted slightly. But we’re right back at it and more determined than ever to stay on track. You remember last […]
