Free Weekly Meal Plan with Printable Grocery List – 8/5


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.)

Dog days are here. It’s 100+ in San Antonio…and if we are outside, we are at the pool chilling with friends. Otherwise, we stay home…and relax, read, play games, and hang out with our neighbor friends!

We’ve got a hodgepodge of recipes this week for you. And note: If you’re worried about using your slow cooker inside because it might warm up the kitchen, put it out on the back porch or patio. (Just be sure it’s safe from outdoor critters, you don’t want someone trying to steal your dinner!)
