I sat down last week and scheduled out meals for the entire month of January. Here is the menu. I'll post the recipes before each week so you can prepare your menu for your family.
I'm trying to get back in the saddle of owning what my family eats one meal at a time. Won't you join me? What you are cooking this month?
Here's what we're eating this month.
