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.)

We’ve got a mix of options for you this week…at our house we try to eat as “with the weather”…so soups and chili on chilly or rainy days, grilled food on those beautiful evenings when you want to just be outside. As we head into March, the weather can be so hormonal…warm one day, freezing and rainy/snowy the next. With that in mind, we’ll have quite the variety of ideas for you this month. Enjoy!

    I realize the recipe isn’t listed here, but I NEED to find something out, and I don’t know where else to ask. (Besides, I’m sure others with your book has come up against this.)
    On your Potato Pizza Pie, it states 6 Large Potatoes. Potatoes are rather hard to measure. Can you tell me about how many CUPS it’s supposed to be?
    Also, in your opinion, which one do you prefer: the Potato Pizza Pie, OR the Deep Dish Pizza Potpie?
    (I really want to make one of these two this week.)
    Thank you, in advance!!!

      Jen, For the Potato Pizza Pie, I used 6 large potatoes…probably about 6-8 cups. If you have a little less, that’s fine. The shredded potatoes make up the “crust” in this. We enjoyed them both, but if I was going to pick one, I’d pick the Deep Dish Pizza Pot Pie. And now, I’m craving pizza…
