Weekly Menu

My friend Tina comes up with a word or phrase of the year instead of writing down New Years resolutions. I didn't really do any resolutions this year, but if I had to pick a word for me it would be: FOCUS

I have good intentions to be organized, but sometimes I'm an all-or-nothing kind of gal. My hubbie can tell you about all of the elaborate menu systems and chore chart systems I have spent hours preparing only to abandon them after one week or less.

And sometimes I have good intentions to start something, but don't because I want to wait until it's perfect. Like my latest menu system was to write down all of the dinners we eat on a seperate card, and then pick from the cards for the weekly menu. But, then I get distracted and didn't finish writing down the meals and gave up.

So for me. Simpler is better. There is nothing wrong with a ripped out piece of paper from a notebook tacked to my fridge. It will still get meals made even though it is not in a fancy decorated box.

So, anyway, I made a menu for this week and next (I know the week is almost over). I love reading the weekly menu over at Sister Stuff and you have to check out This Week for Dinner. Not only do they post weekly menus and then people can add their own, they also post recipes and cooking tips.

Anyway, I analyzed all of the freezer meals I still have in my freezer from my freezer group and decided I better get those eaten.

So, here is my menu:
Wed: Brinner: French Toast and Cheesy Eggs
Thurs: Sloppy Joes
Fri: Honey Ribs from Freezer Group
Sat: Pizza Calzones
Sun: Crock Pot Italian Chicken
Mon: Mu Shu Chicken
Tues: Mexican Chicken and Rice Dinner
Wed: Tortilla Soup
Thurs: Sausage Pasta Dish
Fri-Papa Murphys
Sat-Hopefully date with my hubbie!

  1. I like the "write recipes on cards and pull them" to figure out your weekly menu. Usually I don't mind making the meals, I just hate deciding what to make!
