Back To Menu Planning
Last week my parents were in town and we had a great time with them but while they were here menu planning pretty much went out the window and grocery shopping along with it so I feel a little behind coming in to this week. "Forcing" myself to make a menu plans means I have to look at the week ahead and think about it otherwise I'll find myself going out to dinner every night. Granted I should have menu planned for the whole month but this month I just didn't get to it and with Thanksgiving so close I doubt I will again until December. Where does the time go?
After considering what I have on hand, this is the plan I came up with for the week:
Monday: Out to Chili's with a gift card and a coupon code - dinner was $14 out-to-eat for 7 people!!
Tuesday: Easy Pleasing Meatloaf with baked potatoes and green beans
Wednesday: Chicken, noodles and broccoli
Thursday: Spider-Man Spaghetti Pie - it's Caleb's 8th birthday and he's going with a Spider-Man theme
Friday: Layered Enchilada Bake
Saturday: Birthday party then baby shower - dinner will be quick at home or easy drive-thru
Sunday: Pasta Skillet Dinner
