Monday:
Breakfast: Waffles
Lunch: Tostadas
Dinner: Salisbury Steak, Basmati Brown Rice, Green Salad

Tuesday:

Wednesday:

Thursday:
Breakfast: Rolled 5-Grain (a cooked cereal, similar to oatmeal)
Lunch: Taco Salad
Dinner: Cheesy Bacon Burger Meatloaf, Fajita Fries, Green Beans (I’m still cooking through this meatloaf cookbook from Gooseberry Patch. It’s not available for free any longer, but it’s still a steal at just $0.89.  If you’ve joined me in cooking through the meatloaf cookbook, or if you want to, please post your results on my facebook discussion board. I’m keeping track of our favorites and not-so-favorites there, too.)

Thursday Goodie: Grandma’s Tea Cookies

  • I have started planning my menu by the month. It saves me a lot of time. I also make a weekly grocery list for perishables that I have to pick up each Monday for that week. Have I told you I love your place? I only found you last week and I have been reading as much as I can to get to know you! LOVE, Love it here! Blessing!

  • I need to get back in this useful habit. When I worked full time, I planned by the month. We have five kids at home and it was a life saver. Now that all five are grown and gone and it’s only hubby, me and our 2 year old son and I’m a stay at home mom I have been very lax in keeping a schedule for anything.

  • Monica – Wow! Menu planning a month at a time is fabulous! Good for you!

    Thanks for your encouraging words about the site. Good to have you here!

    Why is menu planning intimidating to me? It does not make sense. When did you start menu planning?? I shop big bi-weekly, so that means i actually should make menus for 2 weeks?? I do menu plan for guests and weekend company so i do not undersstand why it seems i can not do it for my fam for 2 weeks. Any wisdom for me? Thank ya! 🙂

    • Oh, Tammy! Menu planning should be a useful tool, not something that brings you grief or causes you more work. I’ll try to blog about this soon.
