Complete 7-Day Meal Plan For A Family of Four: Spices, Grocery List & Recipes

While trying to make as few trips to the grocery store as possible, meal planning can be extremely helpful in this endeavor. When you plan what you need for the week, you know exactly what you need when you get to the store, you can get in and out efficiently, and you wont need to run out for last minute items between meals. However, meal planning for an entire family for an extended period of time can be taxing and time consuming.
It's hard to image on Monday what you'll want to eat of Friday. Most of us resort to our old stand by recipes, but those can get old pretty quick. So, we went ahead and did the meal planning work for you, so you can check one more thing off your list and have one less thing to worry about when planning your next trip to the store. These main dish recipes that feed a family of four for one week are new spins on old classics, as well as a few new quick and easy recipes you may not have thought of before!
Keep your menu interesting and fun to make meal time the least stressful part of your day. Not to mention the leftovers!
