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.) There are 2 choices for places to be here in San Antonio these days…inside in the air conditioning, or in the pool. It’s just.too.darn.hot.hot.hot. to be anywhere else. We find ourselves at the pool most mornings/early afternoons, and at home resting in the afternoon. My sneaky little plan each day is to wear out the boys at the pool, come home so they can rest…while I work on dinner, or work, or photos, or whatever. We’ve just fallen into our summertime routine and here comes “back to school” season and schedules! *sigh* Speaking of routines and schedules, I highly recommend having a meal plan. It’s a huge sanity, time and money saver. Here’s a good one for you to try this week. Let us know what you think of the recipes!
