Meal Planning

Planning what to eat is almost as difficult as doing the cooking. We love our local produce co-op and plan our weekly dinner meals around the fresh produce we get each Saturday. Then we look at the local ads to see what meats are on sale. Then we create our meal plan for the week. Below are some of our recent meal plans. I will add more as we add to our recipes. We hope you enjoy our suggestions!
