Meal Planning {Printables}

I’ve had a few friends comment on the cute weekly meal plan I have framed on top of my fridge and my response is always the same…”yes!!  I plan to get those printables on the blog…soonish!”.

And, wouldn’cha know it…today is officially “soonish”.  It’s only taken me 6 months to deliver.


I realized that I hadn’t made them available yet because a friend had asked me, w-a-y back in November when I had first posted a picture of them on Instagram, to please include our meal plan too.  And I said “sure!”.

Yeah, about that.

If consistency were my thing, I could do that.  But I’m flighty and impulsive and totally lack follow-through.  Our meal plan changes so much – if I’m actually consistent enough to fill it out – that, well, I haven’t had much to share in the meal plan department.

Meal planning is STILL something I’m trying to get into the habit of doing.  So…you want to try too?

All our family favorites are right here on the blog…

turkey & black bean burritos

kale and butternut squash pizza


butter chicken

white chicken chili

veggies, sausage & penne in a garlic cream sauce

roasted butternut squash soup and

grilled zucchini pizza, just to mention a few.

And because I see no point in reinventing the wheel…why not explore the minds, recipes & tools of those women out there who REALLY know what they’re doing in the meal planning department…

Once you’ve figured out your plan of attack, and started pulling your menu together…you’ll need somewhere cute to record it.  And this is where I come in {because while my planning skills are ‘meh’ at best, I can whip out fun, colorful designs with only one eye open at 3:00am}.

The MONTHLY meal plan comes in an 8 x 10 or an 8.5 x 11 (full page) printable.  The 8 x 10 can be printed, cropped down and inserted into an 8 x 10 frame.  If you write small enough, and have a fine-tipped dry erase marker, this option is for you…you only have to print one and frame it.

Or, you can print 12 of the full page sheets off and nestle them into a binder for a year’s worth of planning.

The WEEKLY meal plan comes in an 8 x 10; ready to be printed, cropped and inserted into a frame.  You could even magnetize your frame and display it on your fridge if you are feeling adventurous.

Pick your poison, baby.
