Menu Plan Monday: Week One

I know, technically it's Tuesday but that's only because I am up WAAAY too late. I meant to have this up before midnight but it just didn't happen.

Last week I had my meal plan all the way into this week but like I said yesterday I didn't have all the ingredients so I'm kind of, sort of starting over :)

Here's the new list from today on - the easiest part is that all I have to do is check my master calendar and then drop in the links here in case anyone wants to try out a recipe.

Monday: Chicken Taco Bake

Tuesday: Weeknight Lasagna Toss

Wednesday: Tater Tot Casserole

Thursday: White Bean Chicken Chili

Friday: Mac 'N Cheese Pie

Saturday: Cheesy Chicken & Salsa Skillet

Sunday: 30-Minute Mini-Meatloaves

You may notice a number of meals we've had before - I didn't plan it that way - that's just kind of where they all fell in the month. Lots of new recipes coming though I don't mind starting the month out with familiar food.

I wanted to add I love Donna's idea about doing a 3-month rotation. I have a feeling that is most likely what I will end up doing. I love variety and can NOT have the same thing every week and often every month is too much but every three months I could handle with a few tweaks here and there. Thanks Donna for the suggestion!

  1. Dorinda,

    You are welcome. And if you get the hang of it and really want to get adventurous you can start planning out seasonal menus, so eventually you could have a full 12 months worth of menus. Have I gotten to that point? Nope. Do I plan to? Maybe. Right now I am figuring if I have 3 months worth of entrees, I can make it more seasonal with the sides that are served being based on in season fruits and veggies.

    BTW I am jealous, we do not have a Harris Teeters near us so I will have to miss out on that awesome cheese deal.
