In the past, I have tried to follow different menu planning themes only to lose interest in following their format after a couple of weeks. Well, this past year, I have menu planned off and on. The weeks that I menu planned, our lives seemed to run much smoother. The weeks that I didn't menu plan, we ate out more, spent more money and I felt discombobulated. So one of the things that I want to do in 2016 is to plan our menus weekly and post them here for accountability.
Breakfasts are usually yogurt and fruit or cereal and fruit for the kids and Bill and I find whatever we are in the mood for. Lunch is usually something quick for Benjamin (chicken nuggets, corn dog, PB and J) with fruit and leftovers for Bill and I. That leaves dinner....
So the question is: What's for dinner this coming week??
MONDAY::: Chili and grilled cheese sandwiches
TUESDAY::: Fish, rice and broccoli
WEDNESDAY::: Hot dogs on buns with chili sauce and baked beans
THURSDAY::: Hamburger helper and peas
FRIDAY::: Frozen pizza and fruit salad
SATURDAY::: BBQ Chicken (in the crockpot) sandwiches, green beans, and corn
SUNDAY::: Macaroni and cheese for the kids. Date night for hubby 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 hamburger 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?
