This is a tentative meal plan for the 5 weeks that my family will be here after the baby is born.  It won't be followed (for one, I believe my church will provide about a week's worth of meals at some point), but it helps to have something in place so that I don't have to scramble at the last minute.  It will also help as I prepare my grocery list.  I especially like being able to link to the recipe sites when I'm trying to remember what I was planning on making for dinner.
