Hello all!! I am new to this board. I love to menu plan as it keeps me on budget, which is a must for our family. I even have a post on my blog on Mondays that was Menu Plan Monday. Lately though, I have fallen behind due to 'life' but I know that's just an excuse. I find that when I make our menu, it helps dinner be on the table early & cuts costs in so many ways. It also help eliminate spoilage from our fridge because everything gets used. I am looking to start back up on Monday and stick with it.

Home with DD who has strep so no boys this weekend. Sticking to our menu plan, sloppy joes, Mac & cheese and peaches tonight just making half of what I'd planned since we're sans teenage boys.

Tomorrow will be crockpot pulled chicken and Rice a Roni.

First time n this thread. I print out blank calendar pages and find I do much better when I plan most of the month at a time. Our next few days:
2/1: clean out the fridge/leftovers.
2/2: soup and sandwiches; I bought a value pack of lunch meats and crusty rolls from BJ's yesterday.
2/3: everyone fends for themselves every Sunday. I did buy buffalo bites, fries and soda for game night though.
2/4: pasta for 3 of us; ds who does not like pasta gets Gortons fish or a veggie burger
2/5: broiled pork chops, rice and black bean salad
2/6: Monte cristo sandwiches (French toast with ham and cheese) and fruit
2/7: leftovers. Most Thursdays are leftover nights
2/8: either meatloaf or burgers (I use ground turkey for each, so whichever I am in the mood for), probably baked potatoes.

I'm in NC too. Do you drive or fly? My husband refuses to do that drive more than once a year.

Superbowl food: Cranberry Jalapeno glazed crock pot wings and Trisha Yearwoods sausage hors d' Oeuvres.

I don't care who wins, I am just watching for the commercials.

Hi and welcome! I fall behind time to time on the planning too. Good that we're here!

This week in no particular order:

Beef stew with biscuits

Chicken fajitas with fruit

Breakfast for dinner (either scrambled eggs w/ bacon, orange glazed biscuits and fruit or a french toast bake with fruit)

Hot roast beef and cheddar sandwiches with something

Pizza on Friday

That's the loose plan for the week.
