Menu Plan: Planning for Guests

What do you make for dinner when you have visitors? I know many people struggle with finding delicious, healthy meals for their own family, so coming up with meals for additional people can be really challenging. During the summer months, it is probably more common to find yourself feeding an extra family or two due to summer travels, family reunions, or get togethers.

It has been my experience that you don’t have to break the bank to feed extra people. If you menu plan, you can feed extra people without spending a lot of extra money.

This week my sister-in-law, who many of you know from Mom’s Toolbox and the Bible in 90 Days, is visiting with her children. I’ve picked meals that are easy to prepare and can be doubled or tripled without much effort. The meals are also kid friendly, which is important when you are feeding ten of them. 🙂

    I’m visiting from MPM, and would love for you to link up your plan at my blog as well, if you’re so inclined. Have a great week!

  2. Yum! Thanks for the inspiration! Now I think I need to go cook. . . Say “Hello” to Amy and family from one of her Bible in 90 Days readers/mentors! Have fun together!

  3. Wow! I totally didn’t know that you and Amy were Sister-in-Laws…is she married to a brother of yours, or a brother of your husbands? Just wondering since reading your ‘Back Story’, I feel like I know you:)
    I am also a mentor for B90 this go around…so I get lots of emails from Amy! Hope you all have a wonderful time!
    Love your Blog too!

  4. I love making homemade pizza’s when we have company. cheap and easy. I also think breakfast is the easiest meal of the day when you have company over.
