Here's this week's menu plan and grocery shopping list! I'm so excited because I'm trying out a new plan this week ~ I'm going to pre-cook and organize everything we need for the week this weekend, that way dinner can be thrown together in just a few minutes each night!
I also created this handy dandy free printable google doc for you to print if you'd like to follow our menu plan – hopefully it makes your life a little simpler this week (let me know if you like it!) If you're new to Google Docs, here's how to print your list:
- Open the document HERE
- Click “file” in the top left hand corner of the screen
- Click “print” at the bottom of that menu and print your list
If you're hoping to get on track too, check out my Menu Planning board on Pinterest where I've got all the links to the recipes we're eating each week. Head on over HERE to check that out, and I'd love for you to join all the PPP boards on Pinterest too.
