Per usual, I got very ambitious in January and started a project that I've had a little trouble sustaining: this blog. This was made more difficult in March by taking on another blog that allows me some creativity and has enriched our homeschool.
This blog has been great as an accountability measure to get me meal planning and out of the funk I was in. However, I'm ready to settle back into a routine and spend less time meal planning and trying new recipes. To that end, I sat down and planned a four-week meal plan that utilizes some batch cooking and freezing, as well as allowing me to repeat some favorites while trying recipes from the Ready or Not! cookbook (which is featured prominently here). Below you'll find the meal plan with a few linked recipes and page numbers to the recipes in either the Ready or Not! (RoN) or Food For Humans (FFH) cookbooks.
My husband offered to take on one meal a week and usually at least one kid cooks with him.
