The $5 Dinners Weekly Meal Plan with Printable Grocery List

Every week I will post 5 links to archived recipes, plus an additional 1 or 2 recipes for breakfast, snacks or batch cooking recipes.  You can click through to see the original recipe and print that recipe if you like. (Or go green and just come back to this post to get to the recipe.)

It was the Curried  Quinoa that Tyler literally licked his bowl clean, when he was about 15 months old. He could not get enough…and we hope you can’t get enough too! And I love to make the Pizza Penne when I forget to start the pizza dough in the bread machine! Happy last week of January y’all!
