April is fast upon us and I made a meal plan that will keep us going throughout the month. Lots of yummy meals await us and I can hardly wait.

My meal plan includes that I make pretty much everything from scratch. Knowing what ingredients are in our food is important to me. It also makes a huge difference in the cost of each meal. I try to make all of our baked goods so I save money over buying them at the store. Occasionally I may grab a loaf of bread if I am short on time, but I try not to do that very often. We prefer our homemade bread over store bought.
As the budget allows I will plan to purchase loss leader items and take advantage of any good sales to further add to our pantry and freezer.
Any fellow meal planners out there? Whether you are or not, what are some of your favorites dinners to prepare for your family?
