Menu Plan Monday - 9/15/2008

It's that time of the week again!! Menu Plan Monday! I've done actual menu plans for the last two weeks and it's worked really well. I plan out menus for six days, but I don't assign the menus to specific days. If I feel like cooking one day, then I choose one of the menus requiring more work. If I don't feel well, then Mr. Math Tutor or Ga'hoole Girl can cook one of the easier menus. In addition, I know that we have the ingredients to make whatever I have planned. So, we'll keep it up.

1. Ham, skillet fried potatoes, veggie

2. Garlic and onion soup, salad

3. Spaghetti, garlic bread, salad

4. Flank steak, couscous, veggie

5. Brocolli-chicken stir-fry

6. Grilled chicken thighs, pasta, salad

7. Grilled cheese sandwiches, raw veggies

There, now I've got the menus planned and I made a grocery list for Mr. Math Tutor for tomorrow. We're ready to start the week.

I agree! Menu planning is a lifesaver! I didn't start doing this until I was introduced to FlyLady. Now, I find that it makes my life much easier----no more scrambling around at 4pm wondering what we have to make dinner! I have found that it also saves money too---I try to plan meals with the staples we have on hand. I'm sure it helps you too since you never know what your days will be like.
