Hello 2012 and welcome back Meal Planning!
Throughout the 2011 holiday season my meal planning seemed to get lost in the hustle and bustle of company parties, school functions, gift wrapping, seasonal baking and so on....
I was excited this morning, the first day of a new year, to sit down at my computer with my pen and paper (yes, I'm a write it down and cross it out type of gal) and meal plan for this week. I found some new budget friendly and healthy meal choices that will be new for our family as well as some family favorites that we tend to eat every week. I look forward to sharing these new foods with you and if you try them and like them, I would love to hear about it! The Project Girl offers a FREE downloadable menu planner to make your meal planning that much easier.
HAPPY NEW YEAR from our family to yours!
