It's Monday, therefore, it's time to make sure the menu is in order. I really enjoy menu planning. Not only does it help me make sure that I use up the food I have in the house, but it also saves time - we put Baby to bed at 7 o'clock every night, and I try to get dinner on the table very shortly thereafter. There's usually very little time for me to figure out what to have for dinner, so menu planning really makes my life easier...and cheaper - I don't buy random things at the store anymore. I buy what I need!
Monday - Bubba Burgers on the grill and crinkle fries Tuesday - Crispy fish fillets and oven fries Wednesday - My famous pancakes Thursday - Homemade deep dish pizza (yum!) and salad Friday - Glazed pork chops and mashed potatoes Saturday - Spaghetti and homemade pasta sauce Sunday - Beef teriyaki and rice
I get hungry just looking at that! This week is Baby's first birthday, so it's going to be a crazy week, but hopefully we'll be able to stick to the menu plan for the week.
