Welcome back to the new large family weekly meal plan for on a budget for week six! You can see the growing list of budget large family meal plans here. Each week I serve up a fresh meal plan with seven nights of dinners. PLUS, because I *only know mega & lots,* each large family meal plan will guide you through making a little extra to help fill your freezer. Filling the freezer is my fav 🙂.
Let’s plan next week’s dinner menu. The best tool for your budget and your peace of mind is to have a well planned out meal plan. This week, if you’re looking to plan ahead and fill your freezer you can try big batch cooking to give you extra for lunches or freeze it for meals later. Check out this post if you would like to know my Must Have Large Family Freezer Meal Supplies.
In this week’s large family meal plan, you’ll find Pulled Pork Chicken BBQ, Lemon Garlic Tilapia, Pizza (aways makes the kids happy!), healthy Beefy Greenbean Casserole, and so much more!
