January Meal Plan


We have seriously been so bad. Like beyond bad, eating out waaayy too much, for far too long. I was having a huge meal planning mental block and asked my Facebook friends what they were having for dinner. The results inspired me to not only plan for the week (which was my original intention), but to plan out the rest of January! I’m so thrilled to be getting back to home cooked meals. I hope this post inspires someone to do the same!

All our meals are kid & daddy friendly. They are pretty picky.
I’ll make a note if I’m changing or adding something “fun” for my eclectic taste buds, as well as if something is freezer meal worthy with the leftovers.

One thought on “January Meal Plan

  1. Try not to be too hard on yourself for eating out. Life is hard. If you can make it a little easier by having someone else make your food and you can afford the cost, you should take advantage.

    Your meal plan does sound delicious though!
