Menu Plans for Busy Moms

The holiday crush is here…make your life a little bit easier over the next week by creating a menu plan for your family.

And hey, if you don’t even have time to do that, you can copy mine!

As Christmas day draws nearer, I’ve been feeling more anxious every day. We’re having some out-of-town company for the holidays, so getting the house cleaned and ready and stocked with food is a priority this week, along with all the other regular stuff on my plate.

But I finally sat down last night and made a menu plan for the week, along with a menu plan for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I can’t tell you how much better I feel knowing that I have a plan and now just have to execute it.

If you’re feeling anxious about your holiday meal times, I’ve got something that can help….and it’s totally FREE!

Meal planning tips for the holidays

This free PDF is chock-full of tips from homemaking and meal planning experts for a stress-free, joy-filled holiday season.

Make this Christmas the one you remember for its simplicity and the refreshing time you spent with family and friends (and not stressing out about the kitchen chaos). You deserve to sit down and actually eat a meal while its still warm (and then have a cookie. Or two).

I hope this helps!!

As usual, my menu plan is Trim Healthy Mama-friendly. If you aren’t familiar with Trim Healthy Mama, head over to read all about how I became a Trim Healthy Mama and lost 35 pounds in 7 months.

  1. Your menu plan looks good. We’ll be having pork chops tonight be instead of broccoli we’ll be having roasted cauliflower and potatoes.

    I hope you have a great week.
