Meal & Grocery Planning: organising your family favourite recipes {and a free printable}

Whether you're meal planning in advance or walking in the door at 6 pm, coming up with a meal idea can at times seem impossible. You know you've got a decent repertoire of meals but you can't seem to think of any of them in that moment and a library full of cookbooks doesn't help.

What you need is a list of go to recipes to jog your memory when you're drawing a blank and this Family Favourite Recipes free printable could become your best friend in the kitchen.

Family Favourite Recipes

Each page in this four-page document has two categories so that you can organise your family favourite recipes into eight (or more) easily recognisable groups.

If you need ideas for the categories, have a look at your Meal Routine or even your latest Meal Plan for inspiration. Other recipe category suggestions to get you started are:

  • Quick recipes

  • Budget recipes

  • Seafood recipes

  • Meat-free recipes

  • Soup

  • Salads & sides

  • Freezable recipes

  • Biscuits, cakes and slices

  • Dinner party recipes

  • Lunchbox recipes

Another thing we often forget are those recipes that we want to try one day when we have the time. Often, though, when that moment arrives, we've forgotten what that recipe was. So, the next time you come across a cake recipe that you want to try, or you have a great idea for a dinner party dessert, print out this Recipes To Try free printable and make note of it. Then tick it off when you've tried it!

Happy meal planning!
