January Meal Plan

Happy New Year!!!!

 I’ve made a change on the calendar! For those of you who have bigger families and don’t have enough leftovers to do 2 additional dinners, I’ve added an optional 5th meal to the week. You’ll find these on Saturday and marked with an *.

    • A lot of these recipes make 6-8 servings. That is double what our family needs. Some meals are smaller and we don’t have leftovers. You’ll see on the calendar that there are always 2 dinners before a leftover day. We always have enough leftovers for at least 1 dinner. If there is more than that, I send them with my husband for lunch at work. If we don’t have enough leftovers, he gets 2 sandwiches and a couple of snacks to tide him over throughout the day.

      You can also add to a meal to make the main dish go farther! A side of veggies, a salad, fruit, applesauce, bread–things like that so you don’t need to have more than 1 serving of the main dish (which usually costs more than any of those things).
