Meal Planning Calendar

It's nothing fancy, but it's what I use. Of course I had to dress us up a little. You can get it HERE at photobucket. If you don't want it color, just set your printer to "greyscale".

And ladies, I know it can be tough, but the more we cook at home the more our hard earned "dinero" stays in our pockets. Sounds good to me, especially with the economy woes right now.

Also, as we know, the more we cook from scratch, the more money we are able to grow in our accounts. ING Direct, by the way, even earns interest through their checking accounts. You can have as many accounts as you would like and they are all FREE, without minimum required balances. I have a secret crush on ING Direct, can you tell? Here is another recipe that my family adores, Banana Pancakes, oh so yummy. With bananas being an inexpensive fruit here, I'm all in!!!

Thanks again to for this delish breakfast. Go HERE to enjoy.

Now I always do this to my recipes {add something to make it better} it's just the "rebel" in me I guess. {Hee! Hee!} Here goes, I add 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. If my family wouldn't revolt I would add chopped pecans also. Then before I pour the batter on my pan, I place 5 thinly sliced bananas slices on my pan then spill the batter on to them. It adds to the flavor and looks super pretty. We know for us women, it's all about presentation.

Well, it's Saturday, my sweetheart is out of the country, and I'm taking my kids on a monkey tour. It's so much fun. Shhh! Dallin is a little nervous. He's been afraid of boats & water since he was about 3. We had an incident with a paddle boat and my honey almost capsizing us. He's never been the same since.

I don't know how many times I have tried to do one of these meal calendars. I really NEED to organize this part of my house.
Half of the week I do not know what we are eating until 2 hours before dinner. Thanks for helping me to try this again.
