Menu Plan Monday

It is time for a bit of organizing in the form of a menu plan.  Do you take the time to plan your menus?  If not you should really consider it.  It is an easy way to save money, use what you already have and keep an eye on your current pantry stockpile.  It really doesn't take long and all you need is a pen and paper (or computer in my case).  Write down what appeals to you or your family to eat this week and then go see if you have ingredients on hand.  Make a shopping list of missing items or edit your menu to what you have in the house if funds are low.  Enjoy it when you can tell everyone what is for supper without feeling overwhelmed!

Here is what we are eating this week.

  1. Calzones (homemade)
  2. Goulash (homemade)
  3. Tacos (from a kit in the pantry that needs to be used)
  4. Chicken Noodle Soup (homemade and using up some of those tiny ABC noodles off a good clearance deal)
  5. Russian Chicken and Roasted Potatoes (crockpot meal)
  6. Pork Chops with Creamy Mushroom Rice
  7. Flex Night (might be leftovers or whatever I am in the mood for in the pantry not an opportunity to go shopping)
As you can see we aren't fancy but we definately don't starve either.  Give a menu a try this week and see what happens at the supper rush.
