Whew! It’s fun to be back to my normal routine, LOL! Here is how I do my meal planning.
1) I grab the calendar and see where we are for the week and what we are doing so I don’t plan a meal for a night we are at a friend’s party or working.
2) I grab the freezer list so I know what ** and *** items need to be used.
3) I look at the last 2 weeks so I don’t feed my family the same thing, week after week.
Here is my plan of attack:
Breakfast is usually the same: French toast, fruit crepes, Breakfast Cookies, cold cereal* or oatmeal* with a piece of fresh fruit (apple, strawberries, grapes or banana).
Lunch is either leftovers, peanut butter* & jelly sandwiches, quesidillas, or cold plate with sausage or diced chicken – cheese* – crackers* & fresh fruit or yogurt.
Monday – Fridge Clean out! There is left over Chinese food, etc that better go!
Tuesday – Crock Pot Chicken! I have a lot of boneless skinless to use and a bajillion Lawrey’s marinades!! With ceasar salad
Wednesday – English Muffin Pepperoni Pizzas
Thursday – Pork tenderloin, veggie blend and wheat dinner rolls, garlic rice
Friday – Dinner party for my Brother who is visiting from South Korea with his wife.
Saturday – Lasagna Rolls with garlic bread
Sunday – It’s Corn Fest so a bajillion ears of steamed corn and about a pound of butter.
I–> challenge you to grab your calendar, check your stockpile and create your menu for your family this week!
