(I couldn't resist the composition notebook emoji! My grandmother used an old composition notebook—now in my possession—to create her meal plans in the '60s, so composition books represent meal planning to me.)

Did you know that frequent family dinners are directly correlated with strong family relationships? Not only that, but the likelihood of teens turning to alcohol, tobacco, and drugs decreases the more frequently family dinners occur.
Years of studies by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University have consistently shown the benefit of family dinners. "Teens who have frequent family dinners are more likely to say their parents know a lot about what’s really going on in their lives, and such parental knowledge is associated with decreased incidence of teen marijuana, alcohol and tobacco use. Family dinners are the perfect opportunity when teens can talk to their parents and parents can listen and learn."
The "magic that happens at family dinners isn’t the food on the table, but the conversations and family engagement around the table." Stress-free family dinners with engaging conversation are more likely to happen with a plan.
So glad to see you back!
You saved my skin when I was a mom of littles. Now that they are young adults, I’m so glad you’ll simplify life for us again!
Love your menu plans!
Thanks so much, Jo! Glad to have you back. :)
So happy you are back. I have all of the old menus from your gluten free menu and the weekly menu saved. I always enjoyed your menus vs others I have tried. They are more to my food likes and abilities. Thank you so much for offering this to others again. Love it!
Thank you for the kind comments, Carolyn! Glad to have you with us. :)
I was so thrilled to find you back! I, too, was back in the Yahoo days, then the old site. I was so sad when the free plans went away. Thank you so much!
So glad to see you back, Dee!

I am so happy you've started doing this again! I still have my old menus from the yahoo group days! I've been looking for more menu plans and these are fantastic! Thank you so much for doing this again! ❤
That was a long time ago! I'm glad you found us again—I'm happy to have you here!
I used your menus years ago when I was feeding 8. Everyone loved the recipes. I too lost track for awhile and saw you on pinterest. Am going to be looking again. Thank you for all the work you've put into this. Busy moms sure appreciate it.
Happy to have you back, Rhonda!
I'm so glad to see these menu plans back! I used them a few years ago amd kind of lost track of them. Menu planning is a struggle for me and I appreciate these menus much!
Thanks so much, Holli! I'm glad we can take some of the stress out of your week.
Quick, easy meals that are equally delicious. I look forward to seeing what's on next week's menu every week.
