MENU PLAN FOR DEC. 28- JAN 3, 2010

Wow, I can't believe 2009 is almost over! One of my goals for 2009 was to cook dinner every night...well that really didn't work out great, but I was greatly improved from 2008. I am going to take that goal one step further this year and make a menu for each week. This will help in several will allow me to work on my weight loss goals, financial goals and it will allow me to make sure that my daughter and husband are getting a variety of foods. So for the first menu of the year....

MONDAY: chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese

TUESDAY: lasagna and salad

WEDNESDAY: Crockpot-- Tex-Mex Chicken and rice

THURSDAY: chicken fried rice

FRIDAY: pork chops, stuffing, corn

SATURDAY: leftovers

SUNDAY: hamburger helper, broccoli

So that is the plan. I am really trying to use up what we have here and keep the grocery budget down! Hope I can keep this up!
