Menu Plan Monday
One of these days, I'll figure out how to post the icon. Menu Plan Monday is not my idea but that of a lady named Laura at www.orgjunkie.com. Although I am sure menu planning has been going on for centuries. I have tried in the past to do my own menu planning before I even knew this blog existed. It has never really come together for me like it has now. Sorta like Weight Watchers I suppose. If you know that somebody else may be watching, you are more likely t0 do it. Right? Anyway, knowing what I'm doing in advance sure does make for a better meal time. I'm more relaxed at dinner time. Therefore my family is more relaxed. I have more time to pay attention to the children. Even my mom has commented (at her last visit) at how much I have my "act" together now. She says, "Wow, you really have this meal planning thing mastered". I owe that to Lara at Orgjunkie.
I have so many canned biscuit products to use up next week from the Kroger sale. I need to think of meal ideas. For the grands, I'm going to break open the pack, lay them all on a cookie sheet and individually freeze them and then store them in a freezer bag. Just like the ones you buy in the freezer section. I'm not so sure this will work for crescent rolls or sweet rolls though.
Here is the line up for this week:
Monday: Pepper Steak
Tuesday: Rosemary Chicken
Wednesday: Taco Dinner
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie
Friday: Cheese Steaks, Fries
Saturday: Crescent Roll wrapped Hot Dogs/Sirloin Roast and twice baked potatoes
Sunday: Hamburgers/ Spaghetti and meat sauce
Keep in mind that my children eat breakfast and lunch at school. Hubby has cereal for breakfast and leftover dinner for lunch. So I really have no need during school to plan these items.
