Free Weekly Meal Plan with Printable List

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.)

Home, Sweet, Home. After sleeping in my own bed 3 out of the last 11 nights, I’m beyond thrilled to be home. My travel spurt is over and I am craving the routine, the meal planning, the afternoons of cooking, and those brief, but quiet afternoon moments when all my boys are all busy doing something productive (or sometimes, not so productive.)

I’m working on a simple meal plan for our family this week, mostly one that uses up some ingredients from the pantry and freezer…as I’m trying to clear things out before my next big trip to Costco. (Which means I’m working on the next big ’20 Meals For…’ plan!!!)

Here are a few ideas for you to try this week…hope you enjoy!

And feel free to check out all the previous weekly meal plans with printable grocery list for other options!

Scroll down and you’ll see a list of ingredients for each of the recipes included, in the order they are listed above. I’ll include ALL ingredients, including many that you already have in your pantry, refrigerator, or freezer. If you have those ingredients, just don’t click them!
