so for a while now, i have been planning my menu for the upcoming week on Sunday night. It keeps me in budget, reduces our waste of uneaten foods, and makes me feel more in-control come dinner time. So as I sit and watch Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters, I pull out the weekly circular, my recipe apps and a list.
I have an electronic Grocery List in Word, arranged by category/section and I highlight the items we need for that week. I use the Go MOM! Menu Minder worksheet to plot out my dinners for the upcoming week.
This week, here's what's cooking:
Monday - BBQ Chicken, Corn on the cob and mashed potatoes
Tuesday - Grilled Flank Steak, Zucchini, pasta side
Wednesday Ham, Applesauce and a Veggie
Thursday - Ravioli, Salad and Garlic Bread
Friday - Pizza Night
Saturday - usually un-scheduled
Sunday - (newly formed Burger Night)
Do you plan your menus? What are your favorite resources?
catch you soon -
