Menu Planning

Using a Menu Plan is essential to the success of having consistent and stress-free family dinners. And one that looks good is so much more fun to use!  We would like to share our Weekly Menu Planner with all of our wonderful readers, in hopes that this helps you create family meal times that are bonding, relaxed, and delicious!

To download and print free copies of The Sisters Cafe menu plan, as seen below, click here:
It will download both designs as a two-page PDF file. Choose which design best fits your needs. If you like the first design better, then print page 1 only. If you like the second design better, then only print page 2.


As you can see, there are two different designs to choose from.  One is just for your dinner plans and the other includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Both designs have a section reserved for your Grocery List.  After filling out your Menu Plan, the grocery list can be cut off and tucked in your purse for your trip to the supermarket, while the cute menu portion can go on your fridge or somewhere convenient.

*And if you haven’t had a chance to look at the ‘How to Create Happy and Nourishing Family Dinners’ article under the ‘Food for Thought’ tab, you definitely should!

Wow! These are fantastic. I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. I can’t believe you are offering it for free. Thanks so much Melanie, and all your fabulous sisters. What an awesome website you have!

I’m wondering if one of you ladies has a pantry or ‘must-have’ list of items that you always have at home? Thanks for the printable too. Looking forward to using it tonight. :)

Hi Francheska,
I have had a few requests for a stocking a pantry list. I think that is a great idea for a post! I will work on that:)

Thanks!! That’d be great! I came back on here to say that you’ve made my food shopping experience much quicker and more desirable. :)

This website has been a true inspiration for me! Not just as a mom but spiritually! I love this menu planner and have set up a binder for myself and cleaned off a little spot in my laundry room to do menu planning. We always have family dinners but I always feel rushed and doing things at the last minute. Plus, I feel like we are always eating the same things. I am so glad to have run across this website! It has been a mommy/wife lifesaver! Thank you!

Thank you so much! It was hard to find a menu plan that incorporated all three meals, plus it is super cute!

I just have to let you know I have been using your meal planning chart for the past few weeks and I love it! It makes planning soooo much easier! I’m sharing it over on my blog!

PS: Once I put the kiddo down for a nap, I’m gonna go pin crazy on all your recipes! Thank goodness for pinterest!
