Menu Plan Monday
Do you make menu plans? I find it very helpful both to keep me organized (especially on hectic weeknights) and to keep my budget under control. I plan my dinner menu by the week and base it on food items I already have on hand and what is on sale at the store that week. This week I am pulling chicken and homemade spaghetti sauce & meatballs from the freezer. I'll buy the fresh produce items and everything else I already have on hand.
Here's my plan for dinners this week...
Monday...Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken, mac&cheese, broccoli
Wednesday...Easy Chicken Enchiladas, rice
Thursday...Breakfast Night ~ Belgian Waffles, Sausage, Fruit
Later this week I will post about my produce basket for this week. For new readers, I participate in a local produce co-op. It has been a while since I participated and posted anything about it so stay tuned for the info. If you are local to me it is definitely worth looking into. For those not local to me, I hope this will encourage you to check into any programs like it in your area.
I'm joining Menu Plan Monday at Org Junkie this week. Stop by for lots of menu planning inspiration.
