Menu Monday - First of Many

Before I get into the menu spiel, I want to take a moment to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sweet baby brother.  Okay, so he's not so much a baby anymore since he's turning 21 today!  : )

Anyway, in an effort to make myself more accountable about cooking at home I've decided to add a Menu Planning Monday post to our repertoire.  This should not only make my shopping easier, because I'll know what I'll need for every day for the whole week, but will also help us stay on budget.  I'm only going to put dinners though (unless there is something special about breakfast or lunch) because those are the ones that require the most groceries and will vary the most during the week.  We tend to eat pretty much the same thing for breakfast and lunch with some changes, so it's not very interesting.

Monday - Dinner with the family for Dan's 21st birthday!

Tuesday - "Lost Night" (I think I need a new name for this weekly event...)

Wednesday - 5 cheese ravioli with pesto and tomatoes

Thursday - Mom's Night Out for Alex, frozen pizza for Travis and the boys

Friday - Chicken Parmesan over rotini with mixed veggies

Saturday - Indonesian chicken satay with peanut sauce and fried rice

Sunday - Travis at game night, leftovers or dinner with Melnicks for Alex and the boys

  1. What a great idea! I SO Need to start planning out my meals. Unfortunately I don't like to cook so doing it is just that much harder. But I know if I planned it out it would make a difference. Note to Self: Perhaps try to start planning meals now that little twins will be starting MDO soon. Thanks! I enjoyed visiting your blog!
