Are you ready for a monthly menu plan? I sure hope so, because that is what I have for you today. I’ve changed things up just a bit, and only included recipes already on the site. I also chose recipes that are easy on the budget, just in case you have other things (besides groceries) to purchase this month. It is December, after all.  🙂 Also included are some of my healthier dinner recipes so we can spend more calories on toffee and fudge. Just what you were hoping for, right?

If you are looking for seasonal recipes, take a peek under my header. I’ve organized some of my favorite holiday recipes as part of a drop down menu underneath the tab that says “Holiday Recipes”. It will leave it there all season. Hope you find it useful!
