I hope you all caught my segment on Talk of the Town last week on Cost Effective Family Meal Planning. If not, click HERE to check it out!
This week, I’ve decided to feature some “One Dish Dinners” as highlighted on Food Network. Time saved is money saved…not to mention less time in the kitchen afterwards cleaning up! I’ve also been encouraged by Woman’s Day; every month they feature a day-by-day menu complete with shopping list. They also subscribe to what I’ve been trying to accomplish with my family: one meatless day, a day of leftovers, and turning one meal early in the week into something else later in the week.

|Week of 9/14||BREAKFAST||LUNCH||DINNER|

|Tuesday||Fruit Oatmeal||Turkey & cheese Grilled Sandwiches||Skillet Lasagna & garlic bread|

*P.S. Crepes have always been what I’ve known as pancakes. My mom’s from England and she taught me her recipe from an early age, but it’s always been hard for me to write it down for someone else! I think Alton Brown’s recipe above comes pretty close!
