Less Stress, Less Mess, Prepaheadable Meal Plans from Love on a Plate

Prepaheadable Meal Plan #5

This week I’ve got a house full of people, like EVEN more than normal.  I normally have six people to feed, but this week, we’ve got guests and I’m feeding TEN – OH MY!   It’s these times where I wouldn’t survive without meal planning.   Prepaheadable Meal Plan #5 is full of meals that are good for larger groups!  I like to write out my meal plans so everyone knows what we are eating when.  I’ve got this free downloadable Weekly & Monthly Meal Plan printable. Download your FREE copy of both now!

It all starts with a solid meal plan, a shopping list (critical) and dishes that can be made ahead or prepaheadable.  This way at least most of the work is done on one day for a few hours eliminating mess and stress during the week.

It’s also starting to be warmer, so as the seasons change, I look to add lighter meals to the plans.  Don’t get me wrong I’ll still be making weekly soups, but you’ll see fewer casseroles, stews and chili recipes.  Time to marinate & grill, think of main dish salads, seafood, fish, and stir fries with lots of seasonal veggies.

This weeks menu is full of recipes that feed a crowd, won’t break the bank, are teenager friendly and taste amazing!   You can freeze any of these meals with great success, or register on the site, and change the serving size to what suits your needs.  You can also add recipes to your collection and create your own Weekly Meal Plan, and generate a grocery list.
