I forgot to link to where I found Menu Plan Monday last week, and I feel really bad. I was reading Tales From the Dad Side and clicked over to his wife’s site Circle of Life and she had her menus up. I then went over to I am and Organizing Junkie who hosts Menu Plan Monday. I have to tell you I was excited. This was the kick in the pants that I needed to actually get started. Anthony and I were talking about menu planning for months and it never seemed to happen. I now just need to stick to the menus better. Oh and I need that lovely graphic button. 🙂
I think that I did really well for my first week and only had a couple of substitutions, though I really wanted to be a little more on the ball. I also bought my first slow cooker last week as well and I am sold! Everything went as planned until Thursday, when I figured out that I didn’t have the energy to cook a new recipe. At least I went with the next thing on the list and move Friday to Thursday. On Friday we had another out and had a frozen pizza. (Can you tell that my son has been night waking a lot this week?) Saturday we actually had the second Shepherd’s pie that was made and not frozen like I meant to. Sunday we had the chicken only BBQed instead. I am hoping that we get at least through Thursday before we need any subs. 🙂 Anthony has suggested that we have one meal a week that can be swapped with a frozen quick meal if necessary. So here goes my second week. Wish us luck.
Monday: Pancakes, or Waffles, Bacon, and Eggs for those as wants them.
Tuesday: Lasagne, Nice Bread (Terra Breads Potato Chive, or Rosemary maybe), cheese, olives, Balsamic vinegar/Olive Oil dip, Salad, (Company for dinner. )
Wednesday: Fried Rice and Vegetables
Thursday: Skillet Cooked Parmesan Chicken Corn, Mashed potatoes
Friday: Good Friday, maybe a Day Trip so no meal planned.
Saturday: Mommy’s Day Off (Birthday) so order something, Carrot Cake (Made by DH) for Desert.
Sunday: Turkey with all the trimmings. Happy Easter for those who celebrate.
Monday: Leftovers Yum! Turkey Soup Time!
Have a lovely week everyone.
