Menu Planner: Week One

It's Here..It's Here!

You've asked several times and I know it's taken me F O R E V E R!!...thanks for being SO very patient with me. It was not an easy task. You see my computer crashed last year sometime and it wasn't until recently that I noticed that most of my files were lost (a very sad day) and so I had to recreate a lot of my menu planner. It's better than the one in my kitchen.

I've also gone back and worth about whether or not to charge for my work but this thought kept popping in my head.

I love blogging and through blogging I have meet incredible people, learned a lot of new things and feel inspired by others who share their talents with me.

So you see that is what I want for you. I want you to come to my blog and feel uplifted, learn something new and walk away happy. So thank you to all of you who have been so sweet and encouraging me to sell my menu planner. I've decide not to charge even though my husband thinks otherwise. :) Love him because he believes in me.

All that I ask is ..please follow me! Over there on the right side bar!

A few tips before you get to downloading and make your dinner time successful!

1. Set a shopping day and stick to it!

2. Adjust dinner plans according to your busy days. Switch things up! :)

3. Make as many preparations before the hectic busy dinner time hour. ie. chopping, setting of table if necessary, any thing that will make prep easier.

4. Don't stress :0 Easier said than done..I know! :)

5. I've including a recipe for French Bread..its easy and so yummy. Feel free to purchase french bread on days when called for it of course! :) ( don't stress again!)

6. Set a dinner time for everyone to sit together and enjoy the meal!

7. Talk to your children about table manners especially about saying things that refer to dinner being yucky as children do :) sometimes hurts especially since you've planned and prepared a wonderful dinner. Teach them to keep there comments to themselves. Dinner will be more enjoyable for you!

8. Enjoy!!

Thanks so much for sharing, Natalie! I had your menu binder pinned back months ago, hoping I'd be able to make one similar. You've saved me hours of work that I can use instead being with my family. Blessings!

Seriously I want to cry from happiness! I was struggling trying to do menu planning and it seemed I was making the same old thing over and over again. I was ready to give up.... you've lifted a huge weight off my shoulders, you just don't know!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate you sharing the files you have taken so much time to create! This really helps moms like me who don't get home until 5:00 P.M. (or later) and then have to cook super. My New Year's resolution is to cook more meals at home versus eating out or just heating up prepackaged junk. Thanks again!
