menu plan monday


i just learned about this from a blog i read. well i had seen it awhile ago but never really read it so i just actually read the details...coincidentally right when i had made a menu for the week.

menu making is something i REALLY need to do regularly because we tend to put off grocery shopping and making dinner so we end up eating out a lot. so i want to change that.

i'm not assigning days for the recipes because i like to have the flexibility to pick which ones to do when. i used to do this a long time ago and it worked well for us. i just cross off the meal once we've eaten it so we can see what we still have the fixings for.

soooo, without further ado. here's what i got figured out for the next week (and i need to go grocery shopping tomorrow!)


breakfasts:

french toast sandwiches
coffee cake/fruit
oatmeal/fruit
blueberry muffins/fruit
eggs/toast
yogurt/granola
oatmeal/fruit (again)

lunches:

turkey sandwich/tortilla chips/fruit
mac-n-cheese/broccoli
dinner leftovers
pizza muffins/fruit
turkey rice/carrots
caesar chicken wraps
dinner leftovers (again)

dinners:

beef-n-bean tortellini soup
beef-n-bean chili
pizza loaf
caesar chicken wraps
spicy pepper penne
pepperoni pasta salad
pizza delivery (date night)

  1. It looks good! Do you have a recipe you would share for the pizza loaf? It sounds like something my picky family would love!
