Menu Plan #8 Premeditated Leftovers

Menu Plan #8 includes three of our favorite One Dish Dinners. We are serving premeditated leftovers, great for a busy week and a tight budget.

Menu Plan #8. Premeditated Leftovers saves on the budget and makes the family happy with favorite dishes

The key to happiness when building leftovers into your menu plan is simply to make dishes your family loves and don’t mind eating two days in a row. Not only is it a time saver for busy cooks but it’s a great way to cut back on the budget too.
