Weekly Meal Plan – December, Week 1

One of my favorite weekend rituals is waking up early to plan our meals for the week ahead. I know a lot of families struggle with eating healthful meals or find themselves at the end of a long day with nothing planned to feed the tired and hungry mouths looking at them in anticipation. While there are a lot of aspects of motherhood I can decidedly confirm are difficult for me, planning and executing weekly meal plans isn’t one of them. My hope is that sharing my meal plans (and recipe links, where appropriate) will inspire you to browse through Pinterest or your cookbook collection to find something to nourish your family with.

This week, you’ll notice something a bit different about my meal plan – it includes three meals for each day. I’ve been struggling getting the boys fed before W leaves for school in the morning so I’m hoping that having a pre-determined meal plan for breakfast will help get me going in the morning. So far, it’s been working great and we’ve been having amazing lunches, too. Do you plan all your weekly meals, or just dinners?
