December 2017 Dinner Meal Plan

dinner meal plan, meal plan, list of simple and inexpensive dinners used for monthly meal plan,
We are definitely on a roll and our wallets are saying "Thank you!"  You'll never truly realize how much money you will save until you are forced to stop eating out and cooking as many meals at home as you possibly can.  Here are the dinners that I planned to make for December.

Having the meals written down in a central location so the whole family can see them is extremely helpful.  Want to make a dry erase calendar of your own?  Read my post DIY Dry Erase Calendar to learn how.  Below is the list of all the dinners planned.  If I have the recipe on the blog, there will be a link to that post.

1 - Christmas party
2 - pizza
3 - left overs
4 - lasagna - This was a frozen lasagna, but I do have a homemade recipe here on the blog, Lillian's Lasagne.
