The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. They are also by far the busiest. Our Monthly Menu Plan for December keeps that in mind. We’ve got your dinners planned for you so that you can take that time to breathe, relax, and enjoy the holidays.

This month, when you are at your busiest, the slow cooker is going to be your best friend. Whether you are planning a dinner at home like Make Ahead Sloppy Joes, or you are feeding many for a family gathering (you’ll definitely want to serve them a Holiday Ham with all the fixins’), stress-free meals is what you’ll want all month. And if there is any stress left after cooking these meals, I suggest dessertCherry Almond Bars are THE dessert to try this month!

We have many readers asking for all of the Monthly Menu Plans and the Printable pages to be in one location. So, we put them all together on a special page for everyone. Grab over 3 years worth of Budget Friendly Recipes and Menu Planning Tips too!
