I have been planning my family menus for years – probably since the time Little Bit was born. I have been a fluttering FlyBaby for about that long, trying to get myself on plan with the Fly Lady (but it never seems to “stick”). However, one thing I love about her whole thing is the idea of planning ahead. I am a planner. I love my lists and my plans. So, that part works for me.
Enter Menu Plan Monday –
I stumbled across this meme over on orgjunkie.com and I love the idea! Creating your meal plan, sharing it with others, and getting ideas from the meal plans others have created.
So, I’m joining the bandwagon. Want to join with me? It’s super easy. Figure out your meal plan for the week – what will you be cooking for your family?
Write them down – you can even share in the comments here if you’d like – and link them to the linky on orgjunkie’s blog. It’s been fun looking at other people’s meal plans – and has given me some ideas for next week’s menus.
Here are the meals I’m cooking this week:
- BBQ Chicken (crock pot)
- Beef Stroganoff
- Grilled Asian Flank Steak w/ Rice & Stir Fry veggies
- Porcupines (my mom’s old recipe from when I was a kid – will see how my kids like this one!)
- Sesame chicken bites
- Big Green Salad & Loaded Baked Potatoes
I’m sure we’ll eat out once – usually on Sunday after church. So, with leftovers, that should carry me through the weekend.
I use AllRecipes a lot – you will see that a bunch of these recipes are linked there. I love that I can create my own recipes and store them there as well.
Ok, now it’s your turn! What are you serving this week?
