I started menu planning at the beginning of the year and I will say that with a few exceptions, it worked!
HOW DID WE DO LAST WEEK???
MONDAY::: Meatloaf, green beans, augratin potatoes-- YEP
TUESDAY::: Waffles, sausage, and fruit---YEP
WEDNESDAY::: Crockpot orange chicken (new recipe) and rice and green beans-- YEP (This new recipe was a keeper!)
THURSDAY::: Cheese quesadillas, corn, carrots-- YEP
FRIDAY::: Pizza rolls and fruit-- YEP
SATURDAY::: Chicken patties/chicken wings ??? (Bill is home with the boys, as I have a lock-in to attend with Rebecca-- so this is the plan, unless he decides to order pizza or something)--NOPE-- Bill ordered pizza and wings. I knew he would but wish he wouldn't have.
SUNDAY::: Lasagna and garlic bread-- YEP
So overall, a great week for menu planning, unless you count Saturday night as a failure. I say it is what it is, so just deal. I knew in the back of my mind that he would order pizza...like I said, it is what it is. Onward to this cold, cold, COLD week!
So what are we having this week??
MONDAY::: Turkey, stuffing, green beans, yams, gravy
TUESDAY::: Taco boats, mexican rice, corn
WEDNESDAY::: Lasagna soup (new recipe) and garlic toast
THURSDAY::: grilled chicken, chicken rice, peas
FRIDAY::: pizza and fruit
SATURDAY::: bratwurst, green beans and pineapple
SUNDAY::: macaroni and cheese for the kiddos, date night for Bill and I
I tend to make our menus out on Sunday night to go from Monday to Sunday. I usually go to the grocery store one day during the week (usually Wednesday but sometimes another day). I have everything I need for this menu, except for hot dog buns for Saturday.
Hopefully, I will be able to stick to this plan and can report back success next week!
Do you menu plan?
Do you have a favorite dinner to share?
