Menu Plan Monday

Starting today, I am back to work for the next few Mondays. This means no more muffin tins, but with busy work weeks and a baby on the way I am going to give menu planning a try! I am starting Nanny Goat's 30 meal plan and then hope to post my menu for the week along with all the girls over at Organizing Junkie. I found this great magnetic weekly meal planner in the dollar bin at Micheal's. We have been using this for a few weeks and I just love it. Not only does it keep out running grocery list handy for both of us to write on, but seeing the meals has helped Adam help me take things out of the freezer... two minds are better than one. It also has helped Adam see that if we are having Mexican for dinner, not to eat it at lunch. This has already saved me so much time and stress just knowing ahead of time what will be cooking! Monday: King Ranch Chicken (made with roasted chicken from Sunday) Tuesday: Turkey Taco Salad Wednesday: Penne Pasta with Italian Turkey Sausage Thursday: Easy Beef Strogenoff (Sandra Lee) Friday: On the road to Austin Saturday: Some place fun in Austin Sunday: On the road back home


  1. I'm totally gonna try this system. I get tired of deciding what to cook for dinner.

  2. My gosh - you're organized! I always go read the meal planning posts on Mondays - I've gotten so many great ideas!

  3. I love how some have WW points, are kid friendly, and even one i saw was for a family whose kids got braces so it was all soft foods!


Let's go make something,
