It all began with a pin and a dream....
16 dinners and 3 lunches, recipes all found on Pinterest.
I am not sure how to import a spreadsheet, in fact I don't even have Excel on this computer. I had written this out in a notebook (I am a notebook queen). I am going to try to type in my chart as best I can. The name of the recipe should be the link to the original recipe. The # of Meals is how many meals I think I can get out of it for my small family of 2 adults and 1 toddler. To be honest, my daughter and I hardly count as one adult. Your "mileage" per meal may vary. The container is what I am planning on putting it in. More on that later. Additional instructions is what I will label the container with (in addition to what it is!)

*This recipe serves 6 and is right up my alley! I figure it would make a perfect quick lunch for me. That is why I am counting it as 3 lunches as opposed to 1/2 dinners.
**I am doubling this recipe in order to make 2 dinners. It might end up being 3 though.
