Hi Elle
I hope you checked out this site. It is of Steph's and is no longer active but now in the archives on the web. It is a great site for menus, recipes and a whole lot of good things. I have made lots of things from her recipes and all were good. Once you get the site up you will want to keep poking around and printing all the good stuff you find here. Be sure to bookmark the site. I also keep it on my desktop as it has so much help to inspire one. Here is the site again and I hope you find it is just what you are looking for. Just don't miss this one.

Happy planning those meals!

Lightbulb Another menu site or two with weekly menus plus grocery list & recipes

is found at . There are also articles on the site that are good. Menu archives are also available free.

I subscribe to too. That was already listed ( ). The sample menus are great too.

Both places offer grocery lists along with the recipes provided in the menus. Both can be received via e-mail each week -- Menus for Moms on Thursdays and Saving Dinner on Tuesdays/Wednesdays.

Welcome to Family Corner! If you get a chance be sure to Introduce Yourself so that others can get to know you. As well as the food section here, our sister site, Moms Menu also is a great place to share your recipes and plan menus! I look forward to getting to know you.

Home Made Simple

The Home Made Simple website has some tips about meal planning and a downloadable mealplanner.

Our own Family Corner has a mealplanner that I developed a while back. Link is in my signature file below.

How about sharing your menus here? I like to keep several around of mine just for when I'm stuck on a full meal. It always helps me to look at others when I'm stuck in that mode. So I plan on sharing them here, won't you share your menus here also?
Here is a good lunch menu

Fruit Salad
Toasted Salmon Sandwiches
Floating Island* with chocolate topping
Coffee or iced Tea

*Floating Island
Serves 4

3 cups milk
1/2 vanilla bean
9 yolks
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 quarts water
6 egg whites

In a saucepan bring the milk to a boil with vanilla bean. Let sit 15 minutes to mix. Whisk yolks with 1 cup of the sugar then temper with hot milk. Return to the heat and cook gently to thicken. Strain and place over ice water and stir to cool and thicken. Chill.
Simmer 2 quarts of water in a large frying pan but do not boil. Meanwhile, beat the whites until stiff but not dry. Gradually add the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar and continue beating till glossy, about 30 more seconds. Place a large sheet pan next to the water, lined with waxed paper dampened slightly. Using a large star tip or 2 dessert spoons or an ice cream scoop and squeeze out rosettes onto the paper. Using a spatula lift the rosettes off the paper 1 at time and slide them into the simmering water. Poach for 7 minutes on the bottom then turn over for 3 minutes but do not allow them to touch while poaching. Drain on a dish towel. Remove to a sheet pan and chill.
Serve floating islands in a bowl of the vanilla sauce
