Menu Plan Monday – February 8th, 2010

Wow, time is flying! I need to get some Valentine’s this week!

But I love sitting down on Sundays and figuring out my menu plan for the week. I was talking to a couple of lovely ladies on Friday night who are having a hard time with dinners right now. We all agreed that putting the time into planning your meals is well worth it. Then you just don’t have to think about it for the rest of the week. Write it down on a calendar (I just print one from iCal) and keep that calendar somewhere within easy reach. Often times I’ll take a glance at it after dinner or first thing in the morning to see if I need to pull anything out of the freezer.

Here’s the plan for this week…

Breakfast:
Pancakes & fruit
Granola & fruit
Rice Pudding and Blueberry Sauce
Banana soft serve sundaes
Not sure what else yet
(Mom-Green smoothies)

Lunch:
Pancake sandwiches
Leftovers
(Mom – Texas Cavier or Hoppin John with salad or raw veggies)

Dinner: (M-Th dinners are all from the freezer; the chicken for roasting and the fish are also from the freezer)
M-Oriental Mini Meatloaves w/ rice & a veggie
Tu-Marmalade Glazed Pork (held over from last week) w/ green beans & sweet potatoes
W-Hawaiian Chicken w/ rice & veggies
Th-Pumpkin Chili w/ cornbread
F-Leftovers
Sa-Roast Chicken w/ roasted veggies
Su-Fish en Papillote w/ rice & a green veggie

If you haven’t tried meal planning yet, give it a whirl! Check out I’m an Organizing Junkie for her Menu Plan Monday post. There are literally hundreds of other menu ideas linked to her post (like 400-500)!

I hope you have a wonderful week!

  1. Pumpkin chili sounds great! I have oh-so-much of it in my cabinets. I got nervous in the fall when they feared there would be a shortage. Now I have an abundance.
