I know that cooking doesn't EXACTLY fall into the realm of crafting, but for me it's definitely a chance to branch out creatively. So, hopefully this post falls in line.
I've been following the feed at I'm an Organizing Junkie for some time now (over a year probably) mostly for the Menu Plan Monday. I recognize that weekly menu planning does take a little time out of my schedule, but it's so worth it when I'm not running to the grocery store every day like I used to. Now that I actually have the time to make out my plans, it makes my day and week go so much smoother. I admit that Pat and I may not always stick to the plan, but if we skip a meal I have planned it goes on the menu for the following week. It really does make life a little easier. I do plan for all meals (B=Breakfast, L=Lunch, D=Dinner) and snacks since we are home all day long and I want to make sure we have enough food. I'm sure there's more I want to say about menu planning, but I'll save that for another time. For now, this is my first submittal for Menu Plan Monday.
D: Tacos, Corn
B: Peanut Butter Toast, apples
L: Soup and grilled cheese sandwiches
D: I have a meeting, so it's dinner on his own for Pat
L: Bean burritos, fruit
D: Crockpot Chicken, Cauliflower Gratin, Yellow rice
B: Breakfast parfaits, whole-wheat bagel
L: Pasta Carbonara
D: Pork loin, fresh green beans, long grain and wild rice
L: Turkey sandwiches, fruit, pretzels/cheese crackers
D: Out to eat - Mexican
B: Eggs, bacon, toast
L & D: Unsure (will be at Mama's for MawMaw's birthday most of day)
B: Cinnamon rolls
L: Ham & Cheese Roll ups, fruit
D: Chicken Alfredo, broccoli
SNACKS FOR THE WEEK
So that's it. It's nothing special really. But I know how much others sharing their plans has meant to me, so I figured I'd get in on the sharing!!
