The Three Week Menu Plan (that could save your marriage)

I was encouraged by all of the feedback that I have gotten regarding my post Suppertime Stress – a Solution. I had the hunch that this was a struggle for some other moms out there, and now my suspicions have been confirmed. I have been asked repeatedly to share my menu and my recipes from all you weary moms out there, and so I will be happy to do so. And just to clear the air, my marriage didn’t need saving. But more on that later.

Today I will share my 3 week menu plan, and then I will share the recipes in several mid week posts throughout the next few weeks. Without further ado, here is the menu plan (that could save your marriage):

Monday to Thursday utilize the slow cooker, so that on those busy school nights supper is ready right on time with no last minute stress.

3 week menu plan

There it is! I should mention that all of these recipes are gluten free and dairy free (with some optional dairy toppings). It’s been amazing having a go-to menu plan. I never have to try to come up with something at the last minute anymore which has been so stress free. I also now feel like I have the freedom to try something new if I want to change it up a little, and I’ll most likely end up adding a fourth week for all those other yummy meals that haven’t made the menu yet.

But how can this meal plan save my marriage, you ask? Well, that may be an outlandish claim BUT even so, following this menu plan has led to more harmonious, peaceful, well running days for our family as we go about doing all of the things that we do. There are fewer harsh words spoken; there is calmness where there was often calamity. Could that be enough to save your marriage? Well, it could be… What I do know is that it’s simple, and simple is good.

Go ahead, try it!

    1. Thank you for this! First I am going to have to buy a new crock-pot. Last meal I made in it was a roasted chicken… part way through cooking I noticed a large puddle on my counter, only to discover that the stone had cracked right in half, and all the juices were running down my counter… yummm..
      Next stop: Kijiji for a new crock-pot
      Second stop: grocery store, I am going to start this plan!
