Menu Plan Monday
As I have said before, menu planning is very important when trying to stick to a budget. Doing this at the beginning of the week saves a lot of time, money, wasted food, and frustration. How does it save frustration? Well I have a quick answer to the old "what's for dinner?" question that always comes too conveniently in the midst of doing laundry, changing diapers, and/or nursing the Kid at about 4:30. I am still trying to clean out my pantry and freezer of non-organic food, as well as food that has just been in there way too long.
I do well with a menu, but only when I have a list of choices to choose from. When I assign the meals to certain days something always comes up and makes me have to scrub that plan.
blueberry orange bread, yogurt, clementines
oatmeal, fruit x2
breakfast casserole w/ ham, fruit smoothies x2
cheerios with cut-up banana, yogurt x2
lentil stuffed turban squash, green beans
chicken divan casserole, butternut squash mash (made with apples and frozen in muffin shapes)
pilaf stuffed squash boats, green beans, and twice baked potato for hubby
chicken soft tacos, green smoothies
macaroni and cheese, apple slices, wilted spinach
ground turkey veggie soup, peasant bread
SUSHI!! (that I will not be making)
