Free Bonus: 5 Secrets to Stress-Free Dinners

Weekly Meal Plan

Weekly Meal Plan…

Hello Sweet Basil readers! I’m Jenn from Motocross (MX) Momma! I am a busy mom to four boys (who are 11, 7, 5 and 10 months) and we live a hectic (but never boring) life in a small Wisconsin town! I work full time, and run a part-time business. The bigger boys all play sports so we are constantly on the go, which left me constantly struggling to get healthy meals made for lots of picky mouths every night.
I was drawn to Carrian’s blog for her recipes, and her menu posts, so I was SUPER stoked when she asked if I would guest post!! (Speaking of which, Carrian is posting over at my blog today so stop on by and see what she’s up to!)

I also plan our meals (two weeks at a time) and grocery shop just once every two weeks! I cannot even begin to tell you the impact it has made on our day-to-day living! We eat healthier than we had been because we rarely eat out and meal planning forces (or allows) me to really think about what we are going to be putting in our mouths! It has saved us time and money…we reuse leftovers and never waste time trying to decide what to make! It seemed like a huge undertaking and commitment at first, but honestly…it is easier than it seems! Here is our menu for this week…

Sunday 5/8
Cheeseburgers and Venison Brats (homemade by my step-dad)
Tuna Salad
Homemade Ice Cream Cake!!
(We had a cookout with my family for Mother’s Day!!)
