Menu Plan Week of May 4th May 3, 2009

Filed under: Home Organization — Sarah @ 9:22 pm


I have discovered my weakness…it’s the weekends. We did really good last week and stuck to our plan. The weekend hit and the plan went out the window! I have resolved to make this weekend work!!

Today is the first day of t-ball games. They start a half hour later than the practice, so that puts our evening back a bit. Also, on Friday, my baby turns 3! I can’t believe it! He’s not quite a big eater, so I picked his meal out, but I know he will like it. Grandma and Great, great Aunt Sally will be coming over to join us for the birthday dinner.

So here is the plan:
~Monday – Oven Fried Mustard Chicken with mashed sweet potatoes
~Tuesday – Cinco De Mayo – Taco ring with refried beans
~Wednesday – Bacon and Broccoli Pasta with Salad
~Thursday – Apricot Pork Chops with steamed broccoli
~Friday – B-day! – Tortellini with salad and rolls
~Saturday – Homemade Pizza night
~Sunday – Tri-tip with salad and french bread

I hope everyone has a great week…and sticks to their plan, lol! For more weekly menus visit Org Junkies Menu Plan Monday.

Menu planning.  It’s something that I struggle with constantly.  I struggle with what meals to make, and then actually making the planned meals.  Problem is, to meet my goals of healthy eating and frugal living, I’m going to have to make it work! 

So here it is, the plan for this week.  A couple of things that we have to take into account are Ian’s t-ball practice on Tuesday at 5pm, and a Dr appt for me at 6:30 on Wednesday.  Friday is the preschool Fundraiser, so I will be making something for the boys only.

  • Monday – Black Bean and Spinach Lasagna with salad and rolls
  • Tuesday – Homemade Mac N Cheese with salad
  • Wednesday – Oven Fried Mustard chicken with rice and a veggie
  • Thursday – Apricot Chicken with salad
  • Friday – Homemade Pizza
  • Saturday – Broccoli and Bacon Linguine with salad and rolls
  • Sunday – Roast Beef with rice and veggies

So that’s the week.  I’ll report back next week to let you know how I did sticking to it.  For hundreds of weekly meal plans visit Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday.  Happy planning!
