  1. I always look forward to your menu post. It helps me fill in some of my blank spots. My family loves the recipes that I have used from your site. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I always look forward to your menu posts too. I love that you seem to always have a bean or soup recipe that I can easily make vegetarian for my family & they are always met with smiles!

  3. Hi,
    I love your monthly menus, question...do you have a standard menu plan for so many months and you just rotate it or do you think of all the meals at one time?


  4. Nice variety, I start out well with my menu planning, but I seem to get really behind and don't keep it up. It really does help when it comes to meal time to know ahead what your going to make. Thanks for the encouragement. God Bless

  5. You're welcome Monica and happy momma! :)

    Steph, glad you are ablet find recipes to use! I have several bean recipes on my site that would be very adaptable for meatless cooking.

  6. Coleen, I don't typical rotate my menus. I may look at past menus to get some ideas if I feel I am lacking in creativity.. but usually I plan one meal at a time, taking into account busy days, home days, hubby's weekend and such..

  7. Thank you once again for doing this. It keeps me going to take the time to plan our month out also like this.

    I love your monthly menu calendar! I could make my own but I look forward to yours each month.

    Thanks again!

  8. Thanks for sharing your menus. I also thank you for sharing your menu calendar! I have a menu calendar on my computer that is just a plain graph for the month, and one for the week. Yours is much cuter, so I went ahead and copied it!
