Please Note: I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values. You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales vary by region and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu. 🙂

I was working with the one week form. I figured out the problem. I was emailing it to a different computer in order to print but as long as I print it from my current computer after saving it, it’s fine. And I love it! Thank you for the form!
I am so glad! Thank you for letting me know Catherine, and you are very welcome. 🙂
I love your meal planner printable but when I fill it in and then print, it only prints one box and leaves the rest blank! Any thoughts to get this to print the full meal plan? It even matches the color of my kitchen so it is PERFECT for hanging on the fridge for me and the nanny to reference all week!
Hi Catherine! Sorry about that. Is it the two week planner or the one week? My immediate thought is to update your Adobe Reader software. Let me know which one it is and I will check into it for you. 🙂
Are you saving the menu before you print it?
I did save it first. I will try to fix it on my end, but my Adobe Reader is up to date since I use it for work.
Which form is it–the one week or the two week form? Just let me know and I will check it. They seemed to be working for me, but I want to make sure I am looking at the form that you are talking about.
