November 2019 Monthly Menu Plan


I always meal plan for the entire month using the bulk of ingredients we already have on-hand.  I grocery shop every couple weeks to buy any fresh ingredients we need, along with restocking our produce.  Shopping my pantry, freezers, and basement storage helps to keep our grocery budget low because I typically buy our staples when I see them at their lowest price point.

As recipes are published, they will be linked to in future menu plans. You can also find published recipes under Labels on the right side of this blog or by simply doing a Search.

This month we have the delicousness that is Thanksgiving.  My husband and I are also back to tracking through My Fitness Pal. When we do MFP, I still plan and cook my regular recipes, just decreasing the serving sizes and adjusting ingredients where I can to be lower calorie. I hope to share much more about how I go about this in the near future.
