This Week’s Menu – January 23, 2012

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted our menus. I’ve been following more of a Flying By The Seat of Your Pants Approach to menu planning for the last several weeks. It works for me for awhile, but sooner or later I hit that brick wall of reality and need to get back to a system that works better for me in the long run. We’ve had too much wasted food, too many unbalanced meals, and too many trips to the local take – n – bake pizza joint.

This week’s menu is simple, and includes mostly family favorites. We also have a big birthday to celebrate this week as my “baby” becomes a teen. As things settle back down in my home, after an inordinately busy early January, I hope to try some new recipes. This week, though, we’ll enjoy just getting things back to normal, especially at meal time!
