Wow, menus planned for month of July already? I can do one week maybe two. Usually don’t think that far in advance. But I guess it’s good if you are going to shop sales and save for meals all month. Hadn’t thought about that. Thanks!!!

I’ve got a freezer full of meats that need to get used up! That’s why I plan monthly meals…as well as weekly meals! After all, it’s “just a plan”!

Love you web-site. very helpful. Have you ever tried potato tacos? Maybe you could put that in to help moms. Good with side salad. or for kids alone. Keep up the great work. Brenda
