Menu Plan Monday 12/7

Monday - Chicken Pot Pie (a family staple)

Tuesday - Potato Soup with Beer Bread from Tastefully Simple

Wednesday - Moms of multiples Christmas Party - pizza for dinner :)

Thursday - Chicken Broccoli Braid (Pampered Chef recipe)

Friday - Date night - yea!

Saturday - Grilled chicken with broccoli and rice

You may notice a LOT of chicken recipes this week and you'd be right! While I don't normally plan my meals around the meat that is on sale I did this week because I've used up all the meat I had in the freezer and clearly chicken was on sale (buy 1 pack of chicken breasts get 2 free!!). So for this week I went ahead and planned meals that use the chicken. By utilizing what I already had in the pantry I had to purchase very few items besides the chicken to make my meals and since more than one meal uses the same meat I have already made and chopped the chicken I will need for Thursday which takes out one prep step then. All good reasons for menu planning.

On a side note this is my 200th post! I've had a lot to say this year and look forward to making some changes and adding some things in the new year so look for that soon. Thanks for reading and following my journey into couponing.
