Meal Plan- Wk of Jan 7-11

I've decided to post our meal plans here again for a couple of reasons:

1. It keeps me on track...If I'm planning ahead and shopping ahead, I know what we are going to eat and there's an answer for the age old question "What's for dinner?".

2. I enjoy surfing the web for meal plans...and there may be some other nut out there that is bored with what they are eating and wants to mix it up...and might need a place for a few ideas.

3. Maybe by me sharing....someone else will share and I'll get some great ideas for more interesting, healthy, easy meals.

One of the things that I am changing is that I am only planning for 5 days. Inevitably we will eat out some and so instead of buying food that is going to go to waste I just decided that I'm only shopping for five days a week. Chances are we will have leftovers anyway so if we need food or get snowed in (yeah, right) or the car breaks down or we have no money....there will still be food.

So here it is:

Day 1-  Cereal or Oatmeal
             Leftovers or Sandwiches
             Salisbury Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Salad and Rolls

Day 2- Cereal or Oatmeal
            Sandwich, Baked Chips, Fruit (Kids get a snack in lunch)
            Ranch Chicken, Rice and Green Beans

Day 3- Cereal or Oatmeal
            Sandwich, Baked Chips, Fruit (Kids get a snack in lunch)
            Church Dinner

Day 4- Cereal or Oatmeal
            Sandwich, Baked Chips, Fruit (Kids get a snack in lunch)
            Beef/Vegetable Stew and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Day 5: Cereal or Oatmeal
            Sandwich, Baked Chips, Fruit (Kids get a snack in lunch)
            Baked Potato Wedges and BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

What's cooking at your house this week?

Hi Gina,

This month we are trying out meal planning. Mostly because we are attempting to go all-natural (but are forced to use up all the processed yuckiness in our pantry first). So this week is our dinner menu---
Tonight: leftovers (Broccoli Slaw, Chicken Fried Rice, or Bean and Beef Burritos)
Tuesday: Pork roast, mashed potatoes, peas
Wednesday: Leftover Roast Casserole (found on cooks.com)
Thursday: Spinach Lasagna, fresh baked bread
Friday: Grilled chicken on tossed salad with dried cranberries and almonds

Then the weekends will be for leftovers. Wish us luck!!!
