These meal plans started with this post on how I couldn’t find weekly meal plans for busy moms that fit with my family…. so I just came up with my own. Since writing that post, I have been contacted or contacted the publishers of well-known food websites with permission to use their recipes. I am not a food blogger just a mom sharing great recipes I love or make myself.

Scroll down to view 6 months worth of menus and links to yummy food websites for more recipe and meal planning ideas. I hope my meal plans save you time and a little bit of money too!

  1. Love the chicken stuffed rolls look yummy!

  2. Hi Amy,

    I love that your flying the flag for meal planning! I myself have created Meal plan in colour, which we have just launched online at Siansplan.com. Something that we are looking to do is provide ready made dynamic meal plans that people can use, share, edit and customize based on portions etc. Just wondering if you would have any interest in partnering with us on that? Could be a great way to showcase you recipes and meal plans?

    Would love to hear from you,

    Thanks,

    Sian

  3. I came for a visit from TT&J can’t wait to try this!

  4. this is fabulous!!! thank you so much!

  5. Thank you for spending time on this

  6. This is wonderful – I’m fed up with all those other sites that make you sign up to see the meal plans. Great job.

  7. some lovely food options-
    makes me hungry

  8. Many thanks for this! So many great recipes and inspiration for my own creations. :)

  9. yay- i was finding supper times for my kid becoming really boring- some cool plans and having a weekly menue means its all down- one large shop will sort everything out!

  10. Mary Miller says:

    Love the recipes, however I have to admit I did notice a typo that kind of made me giggle. Under week 11 kid friendly meals I noticed one that said Mini Krappy Patties. It had me scratching my head there a bit until I clicked on the link and noticed it was supposed to read Krabby patties. I am just not sure if this had been pointed out or not. Normally typos don’t bother me, but this one just kind of stood out

  11. What a great idea! I’m so glad that I came across your blog. I have been wanting to do something similar but haven’t gotten around to it. This is perfect! i will check in often.

  12. Leslie Karamitas says:

    Love this website! I cannot seem to find the grocery list for several of the weeks, please advise. Thanks!

  13. Awesome… I appreciate your post. Please keep sharing more and more and information I just had to give you a shout out on my blog!!!! I’m definitely following!!!!

    thanks

  14. Hello, I stumbled upon your site today and I think it is wonderful! I am a new blogger and I recently started something called “Real Meals From the Deals” and I just do sort of like this site and put together 7 dinners each week from the current Kroger sale ad with a corrdinated shopping list and any coupon matchups that are available. I would love to be included on your site. In turn, I would like to send viewers your way as well (they may not like something on my menu one week and want to check out yours). That would be a great variety. I try to do healthy meal options; however, each week does usually include several meals that are quick and cheap based on items from the sale and may not necessarily be healthy. My site is dedicated to the busy mom who just doesn’t have a lot of time. Please feel free to check it out. If you get a chance to check it out, I would honestly love your true opinion. Since I am so new at this blogging thing, I am just not sure if I am headed in the right direction and I would really love some constructive critisism :) Thanks and have a blessed day!

  15. Thank God for you…

  16. awwwww, thanks for the shout out! love ya back!

  17. WOW – how come I never saw this before! This is AWESOME!! I’ll be visiting VERY regularly (or my hubby will ~ he’s the chef in our house!). Can I ask though… how many are recipes designed to serve? 4?

  18. LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

  22. just want to say thanks for having these meal ideas ( with picking eater options!)

  23. Love this! Thanks—

  24. hey thought you might like to know about my favourite cookbook author sandi richard….she teaches about meal planning and offers weeks of meal plans with the accompanying shopping lists…she is a mother of 7 and learned how to do all of this as a way of coping with her large family’s needs…anyway she is canadian and has a show called Fixing Dinner on the Food Network up here but I know she has done some appearances in the US and that you can get her cookbooks from Amazon. She has been a lifesaver around here!

  25. Mary Richardson says:

    Wow, thanks for all the work for these great sounding meals!
