    I would really love to see a little more about what your family and your husband thought about your choices for a weekly menu. Sometimes, I will set up a menu and my hubby will not be totally into what I chose. So, I would love to see more than just you’re line up of recipes, but your family and spouse’s feed-back about what you’ve chosen. I know you’ve not chosen what you did randomly, just so you know. It’s just that these posts are a little skinny. Thanks so much! From a new housewife!!!

    First timer here. I’m really confused. I was under the impression that it would be 5 complete dinners in the meal plan but it looks like the crunchy parmesan spaghetti is to be served as a side. A side to what?
