Weekly Menu and Recipes

In light of my infant's special needs diagnosis and ensuing doctor's appointments almost daily, I have striven to make easier and simpler meals. This has actually resulted in grocery store savings! We try to eat from the freezer and pantry, having only to purchase fresh fruits, veggies, and dairy. Breakfasts are simple (large batches of pancakes on the weekends make for easy weekday breakfasts), lunches are leftovers, and dinner is no-frills with simple side dishes. For example, a triple batch of tomato soup costs only about $2 more than a single batch, and makes enough for a few days. This meal will cost only around $0.50 a serving.

  1. That is quite a large variety of food that can be prepared on a weekly basis for three meals! It would be good if more of the recipes can be given and probably more pictures to illustrate some of the food!

    I liked the fact that your blog is easy for navigate and I could search for what interest me easily. Thanks! :)
