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.

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!
