It’s a new month for meals!
I love pulling out my pen, paper and calendar and making up a meal plan. The challenge of balancing what my family loves to eat and staying on track with my frugal grocery budget excites me.
I hope I’m not the only one. Ahem!
But before I can plan the menu, I need to know what’s going on in our house and on our calendar. It doesn’t make any sense to plan a long involved meal on a night we won’t be home!
With all of that in mind, I bring you healthy eating dinner ideas for July. Remember to change it up if you have special plans for the Fourth, vacation, or family visits!
