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.)

I’m in mourning today. My oldest son is now 8. And I’m desperately searching for a “pause” button. I’d even take a rewind button…and go back to the toddler phase (the good, the bad and the really ugly!)…because I love my littles. And I don’t want them to get a minute older.

But alas, such is life…and it’s a joy watching them grow and mature. Now, enough with the sappiness and onto this week’s meal plan…

The Recipes

Also, don’t forget to check out the amazing resources at Food on the Table!

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!
