Not a typo, this post is for FEBRUARY's menus. I am about to return to work and while menu plans normally happen around the 15th of the month, I will be immersed in semester exams, semester reports etc. Knowing that menu plans really go far to keep our grocery budget in check, I am being proactive and have planned these well in advance. I will need to purchase little to create these menus. Certainly, usual perishables will be restocked.

I am so impressed. I can't even plan meals for a week. Sigh.

I always like to read other people's menus. I don't plan mine far in advance and I always get ideas. Let's face it, deciding WHAT to cook is the hardest part!

Something I've always wondered about is your lunches. I know that you often take leftovers. What about the other 5 people in your household? What food is available, and who makes their lunches? Morning or night before? I'd love to read a good blog post about packed lunches!
