I'm really loving having the whole month planned in advance. I have made some changes so I can remember them for future months and I'm finding some recipes we don't really love and have found that some things I don't want to repeat every month, even though we like them. It sure makes getting my grocery list together easier, though, since I already have recipes pulled and the menu written!
This is what is planned for this week!
Saturday: I have no idea. How's that? Originally, we were going to dinner at someones house Friday night but those plans fell through so we decided to keep the babysitter and have a date night. We spent our entertainment money so . .my plan to get dinner after the kids go to bed tonight might not work ! Maybe we'll rob the change jar and get some tacos :-)
Sunday: Stuffed Shells with Cheese, beans, biscuits. This is one of the meals that, as much as we like it, I don't want to have it every 4 weeks. I think I need to rework my Sunday plan :-) For dinner, we'll have Thai Chicken and Pineapple Stir Fry
Monday: Just some homemade pizza for the kids and I
Tuesday: Tacos, Rice and Beans
Wednesday: I'm trying something new - Chicken Lettuce Wraps. They sound good, we'll see if they are good! Also, some fried rice - yummy!
Thursday: Stuffed Meatloaf, Potatoes, Corn, Peasant Bread (I made this bread a few weeks ago - it was really good but didn't turn out perfect because I tried to use the bread maker to "cheat" - I need to make ti from scratch and see how it works)
Friday: Simple Stroganoff with noodles, Acorn Squash, left over peasant bread
We are spending the weekend getting some projects done - finishing up some things in the basement, storing away all of the outdoor toys/furniture, getting the garage ready to park cars in as the snow starts to fly, and hanging up a growth chart :-) We actually have a weekend at home with no plans so we figured we had better get some things done!
