Recipe For A Simple Life

Simplify your life, one day at a time

Menu Plan Monday

Going back to menu planning was definitely the right choice.  We mixed the days up a little, but only skipped one meal this week.  Ironically,  we (meaning I) opted not to cook one night and had sandwiches instead.  (We did eat them at the table and not in the car or in the bleachers though!)   I also found some frozen chicken taco bowl meat in the freezer (the meal we skipped) so we can have it on Saturday with the leftovers from the week.

The best part of menu planning again was knowing that I had some choices already semi-prepared.  Meaning that I had bought groceries and planned meals based on what we had in the house.  Fewer trips to the store = less money spent on groceries we don’t really need.

This week the menu plan looks like this:

Sunday:  Black Bean and Avocado Salsa Cups, Fresh Veggies and Dip

Monday:  Ravioli, Salad, Peas

Tuesday:  Egg, Spinach & Mushroom Quiche, Ham Steak, Fresh Fruit

Wednesday:  Fried Rice, Chicken Breast, Venison Steak

Thursday:  Eating out or sandwiches in the car while we take the teenager up for a weekend with her grandparents.

Friday:  Greek Style Skillet Supper, French Bread, Salad (maybe – depends on what’s left in the ‘frig by the end of the week)

Saturday:  Leftovers so there will be more room for groceries next week :o)

What’s on YOUR menu this week?
