Hi everyone! November is here, and with that comes my 2016 November Monthly Meal Plan to help you start the month off right.

This month definitely calls for some warm home-cooked meals that will have your home smelling yummy! It’s also a month for being thankful, counting your blessings, and spending quality time with family.

I know that I’m thankful for YOU all, without whom I wouldn’t be able to do what I do. You guys are the best readers ever, and our entire family is thankful for your never-ending encouragement and support! That said, I really hope that my meal plans bless your family in return!

If you haven’t already used this before, you can click on any of the underlined menu items to get to the recipe.

I like to shop once a week, so I just make a list off of my menu plan and head to the store. I find that I spend less when I shop off of a list, then flying by the seat of my pants. I also end up with ingredients that will actually go together instead of a bunch of random items that don’t amount to anything.

  1. Erica, thank you for these meal plans. I’m a new homeschooling mother of 3 who has been following and adapting your plans since august, and the change in our family has been incredible. My kids ask who gave us the recipe for their dinner, and I tell them “My good friend Erica. She said her kids Like this, too, so try it out! ” Please know that you’ve made a difference in our lives as you’ve shown me how to plan meals for the first time in the 7 years of our marriage! 🙂 God bless you, too, this season!

  2. I purchased your digital book and was wondering on average how much you tend to spend a week? I understand it will depend on brands and ingredients for the week, I was just curious if there is a pretty average amount? I have two under two and am trying to get this stay at home mom thing down!

    1. Honestly it really depends on what I still have left over from the week before, and in my pantry. The grocery lists show ALL ingredients, but many you probably already have in your pantry. It will also depend on the number of people in your family as well so it’s hard to give an estimate.
