Menu Planning Mayhem (August 21-27)

“She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar. She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household…” (Proverbs 31:14-15 ESV)

As my dear sister-in-law, Jessalyn is preparing their move back to DFW this weekend, I’m happy to host this edition of Menu Planning Mayhem!

If you are new to the “Mayhem”, menu planning is a way to keep your grocery budget in check and takes the guesswork out of the age- old question:  “What should we have for dinner?”

Whether you are a newcomer or a seasoned pro in the kitchen, you are not alone! Women from all ages and stages in life are sharing recipes and collecting menu plans for the good of all right here each week on Desiring Virtue!

If you need a little more motivation,[intlink id="4910" type="post"] check out Jessalyn’s informative post here.[/intlink]
