large family meal plan

Hi!  I thought I would post here, finally....
I have 6 kids, ages 7 yo to 8 months gestation.  I love the spacing AND the number, but we are planning on taking an extended break after this last one is born.  I want to know what life is like with no diapers....

Well, I made a meal plan that I hope will feed my monsters relatively cheaply and healthfully.  I don't know about y'all but my kids eat ridiculous amounts of food.  I have to make 12 servings of anything just for my family, usually.  This can get expensive.  I also wanted a meal plan that could be largely made ahead and frozen, so I wouldn't HAVE to cook everyday, particularly after this baby is born.

So, if you're interested....
