Meal Plan December

As the pace of the month calms after the holidays, let this be a time to regroup and get organized in the New Year. Meal planning can be easy step towards a more organized week for many families. We had a lovely Christmas holiday and now enjoying some quality family time at home this week. The kids are playing with toys, Daddy is enjoying vacation time and I’m reading lots of the articles I find on Pinterest, instead of just pinning them! I love that so many planners are now available with meal planning space and I may be tweaking how I plan my weekly meals.

Without further ado, here is our last meal plan of 2013. Enjoy!

Meal Plan December

Sunday~ Chicken Tortilla Soup

Monday~ Meatballs and Spaghetti (Madison’s choice) and sautéed green beans with grape seed oil.

Tuesday~ Beef Tenderloin for New Year’s Eve with a red wine marinade. Roasted carrots and potatoes on the side.

Wednesday~ Basque Fish Soup for New Year’s Day and Popovers

Thursday~ Clean Out Refrigerator Night

Friday~ Pizza night with our bread maker pizza dough.

Do you make a meal plan each week? What tips would you share with people just starting out?

    Hi Emily, I am coming from your link at Meal Plan Monday at Your thumbnail caught my eye. I have always wanted to incorporate a chalkboard for our weekly menu! I have quite a few pined on Pinterest. Anyway you asked what tips I would share with people starting out and I would have them make a list of everyone favorite meals then add your own. After that you can start using recipes from other sources but you want to make sure you have a written list to look at each week to choose from.

      Thanks Kristina. The master list of favorites is a great tip! I think I need to revisit my own, especially as our kids have more vocal opinions now about their dinner choices.
