Menu Planning Monday

Well, I have not been very good at posting my menu here, I have been planning a good bit.  I have really been shopping hard the sales to get the best deals and then using those meals to build the bulk of my bi-weekly menu.  I have figured out that I do better planning our menus bi-weekly rather than weekly, although I am only sharing a week here at at time.  Any who…here it goes.

Breakfast: (same choices each day) Oatmeal, Eggs & grits, Cereal;  Fruit, toast, & milk are always on the side

Lunch: (Same choices each day) PB & J, Meat & cheese stack ups, Tortilla roll up; Apple/bananna, water, chips/pretzels

Dinner:

Sunday- Breakfast (omelets & toast), apple & banana salad

Monday- Spagehtti & meatballs (Rachel Ray’s from the freezer), cantaloupe

Tuesday- Hot Chicken Salad (freezer) & green beans

Wednesday- Popcorn Shrimp & frozen veggie & pineapple

Thursday- Homemade Pizza night & cantaloupe

Friday- Viola skillet meal (have a conference to attend)

Saturday- Chicken, Rice, & cuban Black beans

Menu Planning Monday

menu-plan-monday So here we go.  I will attempt what seems to be impossible for me and begin menu planning.  I have done a lot of reading over the past week or so and need some accountability so this is my effort!  We need to save $ on our grocery bill and it seems the best way for me to do that is to menu plan.  Feel free to check out some of the input I got from orgjunkie.com!

Sunday: B-Eggs & Toast, L- 2nd sunday meal @ church, D- cereal & leftover buffet

Monday: B- Oatmeal & raisins; L- sandwich, pretzels & fruit (this does not change much during the week); D- crock pot chicken, baked polenta & asparagus

Tuesday: B- cereal & peaches; D- Salmon, salad, au gratin potatoes

Wednesday: B- eggs & grits; D- Spinach salad with left over chicken & mac-n-cheese

Thursday: B- messy omelet; D- Skillet dinner with Edamame

Friday: B- cereal & fruit; D- Pizza night

Saturday: B- Pancakes (our tradition), L- Sandwiches, D- Open (family night somewhere)

One of these days I will connect some links to recipes I use.  Not that organized yet. 🙂  What is is that you do to organize your food for your family? Any input would be helpful.  Do you have a set menu you like to follow or is it whatever inspires you?  I am contemplating doing to freezer meals with my mother -in-law (great cook!) so that I can relax on the nights I just want to play with the girls.  You know one of those all in one casseroles deals?!  Happy menu making!
