What's for dinner?

Do you ever get tired of hearing that?

Meal planning can be such a pain. I, for one, get sick of preparing and eating the same thing over and over again. I also don't have the time to search for new recipes all the time.
What's a mom to do??
Well, Jamie Ussher has created a wonderful e-book entitled "A Month of Meals" for folks like YOU and ME!
The e-book contains over 70 pages of useful information for a month of meals. She even tells you what to buy at the grocery store. Not only can you prepare YUMMY new recipes for your family but they are also HEALTHY.
Just a few of the great things you will find in the e-book:

*Helpful tips on how to eat a little healthier and stretch your dollars at the grocery store.

*A list of staples to have on hand (I already had most in my pantry)

*How a menu plan can save you money in the long run

*Great tasting and healthy recipes

*The average price of items in most locations

*links to information on gardening, finding your ideal weight and much more

Some of the recipes found in this e-book can be made ahead of time and frozen and some of the recipes can be made using leftovers from the previous night.
I have a few friends that spend an entire day cooking meals for the whole month. I just don't have the time to devote to an entire month like that right now but I did manage to snag some great new recipes for my family this month and ideas for plenty next month.
Most of the recipes only call for a few ingredients and I loved the fact that they didn't need any fancy "schmancy" ingredients (I tend to skip recipes like that, don't you??)
One of my families favorite recipes from the ebook was the one for "Chicken wraps". YUM!
Also included .....various "mix" recipes like taco seasoning, baking mix, and chicken gravy mix just to name a few.
I am still going through all the info in this e-book and would highly recommend Jamie Ussher's "A Month of Meals" to anyone looking to save time and money preparing meals.
