Menu Plan: October 1-7

Menu Plan

This week, I’ll be making some meals for my freezer club (the Baked Lasagna and Pork Tenderloin) and eating some I receive (Cobb Salad and the Italian Soup). These meals are tried and true around our house and guaranteed winners. I’m also excited to try a new recipe from an Ellie Krieger cookbook that I got at the library.

Let me be a broken record and say once again, our family probably wouldn’t eat nearly as many or as nice of homemade meals if it weren’t for my freezer club friends! If you want to know more about starting one yourself, check out this post which also has tons of Freezer Meal ideas. At a minimum, I encourage you to find one other friend whom you can double meals and swap with. It’s been awesome for our family for many years.
