It's been months since I did a meal planning post (so sorry!), I have just been swamped since Thanksgiving and have been simply keeping up with it on paper instead.  I'm going to try and do a better job as I have gotten so much positive feedback from YOU about how helpful these posts are so, here's the first one of 2011.  Tons of vegetables and fruits were on sale this week, which always drives my meal plan in the first place.  Also, there were some great discounts and coupons that allowed me to stock up on things like snacks/crackers and sliced cheese, which I need for Emily's meals daily.  These items will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for all three of us over the next 7 days.
