Our Meal Calendar - Month One

This is one of our new favorites - the cheesesteaks!

So, I've been putting together a little meal calendar - well, actually two so far.  For two months (and a couple days), I've outlined a meal for every day.  I try to hit the grocery store once a week, and we're in the middle of month one seeing how it all goes.  So far, so good.  I think we can plan a few more leftover days in the future because sometimes we don't eat at home, some days we are gone, and other times we have a lot more food left over than I was expecting.  Plus, I've left days to add new recipes or to try something from one of the many cookbooks on my shelf.  

I've also created a Pinterest board here for recipes.  Some aren't the recipes I actually use but are very similar.  The meatballs for example: I have a crockpot recipe that I love (but it's really too long to type out for this post), but I found a similar one for the Pinterest board.

Also, our big meal is lunch, as Jeremy is able to come home and needs a hearty meal to get him through the day.  These can easily be switched to dinner.  PW on the menu stands for Pioneer Woman.  Free stands for picking a new recipe.  I even have a day entitled "Our Sunday Dinner Recipe" as I want to look for a new one out of our Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner cookbook.  

We've found a few recipes that we probably will scratch off the calendar, but most of them we've all enjoyed.  So, here it is:

If you have any favorites, I'm all ears!  And, if you'd like to see Month Two later on, I'll post it as well!

Happy cooking (and eating!).
