Menu Plan Monday 1/3/2011
2011 is going to be the year that I get at least a quite a bit more organized. I am not looking for perfection but I am planning on really starting to get things in order.
So the first thing I am bringing back is my menu plan. Over the past year I have menu planned off and on. Sometimes I physically write it out, other times I just try and remember what my intentions are and that dosen't always work out. I know that when I plan I am less likely to call my husband up at work and ask him to bring home take out. I also know that when I plan I am less stressed out.
So here is my first menu plan of the year!
Breakfast: This week we will be having oatmeal or eggs and turkey bacon. Juice or milk to drink.
Lunch: Choice of soup, PB&J Sandwiches, Grilled Cheese, crackers, yogurt, pudding
Monday: Baked Balsamic Chicken, mashed potatoes and broccoli
Tuesday: Taco Soup
Wednesday: Salsa Chicken Soft Tacos and Corn
Thursday: Grilled Turkey Bacon and Cheese Sandwiches and Homemade Fries
Friday: Pizza or Take out
Saturday: Brown Rice and Lentil Casserole, Broccoli and Cheese
Sunday: Soup and Sandwiches
My goal for menu planning is not to be elaborate (trying 5 new recipes in one week). I just want to get my family fed with less stress and try at least one new recipe every week or 2.
