Menu Monday

Trying to stay on Menu. Not doing a bad job. This week is a bunch of running, so we are going to be eating out more.  Planning a Colonial meal day, if it works out.  If not I will spread it throughout the week.

The chicken casserole from last week was not a hit.  Monday's chicken legs turned into chicken thighs and stuffing.  Which people liked.  The taco rice bowls were a hit too.  I set up a taco bar and they put in what they wanted.

B- Biscuit sandwiches
L - Lunch out (due to competitions)
D- Snacky dinner

B - Cereal and Yogurt
L - Soup and sandwiches
D - Take out and snacks

B - Pizza Bagels
L - Geography meal -  Shrimp Gumbo 
D - Take out

Wednesday - Colonial Meal Day
B - Hasty pudding
L - 
Johnny Cakes w/ bacon
D - Meat and potato soup and Sally Lunn bread

B - Cereal and yogurt
L - Baked fish w/ rice and peas
D - Take out (bball games)

B- Poptarts and fruit
L- Chicken salad wraps (walnuts) w/ grapes/apples    
D- Mexican Lasagna w/ rice and beans 

B- Pigs in the Blanket
L-  Leftovers or Pizza Bagels
D- Smothered chicken over rice w/ peas  

Why I plan.....
Who isn't busy?!?!  Kids schedules, schoolwork, work, WOW!!  Life just does not stop!

When I create a menu, I include our schedule on it also.  In fact, I type the schedule into the table that I created first.  Then I know what is going on that day, and I can plan crockpot meals or even know if I need to have a make-ahead meal ready.  I do not use a fancy downloadable calendar, I simply use Microsoft Word.  I have a table I created on there.  At the bottom, I keep a running list of menu items that either I want them to try or food that is loved by all.

Hope everyone has a great week!!  See everyone next Monday!

  2. Needed to compose you a tiny note to finally thank you very much yet again for your personal splendid methods you have discussed above. It is strangely open-handed with people like you to provide publicly all that a number of people would have marketed as an electronic book to generate some bucks for their own end, primarily now that you could possibly have tried it if you ever wanted. These inspiring ideas likewise acted like a fantastic way to know that the rest have the same dreams really like my personal own to see a whole lot more concerning this problem. I’m sure there are thousands of more enjoyable times in the future for many who check out your blog.
