Cryn-tip: Time for a Plan

Got a meal plan for the week?  I find it much more beneficial to budgeting to have a meal plan before buying groceries than just winging it. Here's my list for the week:

*Salmon, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
*Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetable Bowls
*Arroz Con Pollo and Salad
*Chicken Enchiladas with Spanish Rice, Beans, and Broccoli (Gotta have a vegetable, right?  And what goes with enchiladas?...the age old question...)
*Chicken Tortilla Soup (That recipe, but with slight alterations and additions like corn, zucchini, etc.)
*Bean Burritos

Plus, my meal planning just got a whole lot cuter with this free printable download found here.

Here's a peek at mine... (I printed it on both sides, hence the faint graphics underneath.  It also came with me to the store, so its a little crumpled--still cute, though, right?)

I agree about what to serve with enchiladas???? Of course, spanish rice, refried beans....for the vegetable I like to slice cucumbers and drizzle either lemon juice with a little pico de-gallo or sour cream and paprika/pico de-gallo. Very fresh! Yum Yum
