Menu Plan - Week of 08/29/11

I've sort of menu planned for awhile now, but in the last month I've started planning in alot more detail. I made myself a spreadsheet with spaces for daily planning/prep. work, breakfasts, lunches, suppers and snacks. I still don't plan snacks, but have a general idea at the beginning of the week what is available for snacking.

It has helped a ton. I don't need to rush around and figure out something for the sitters to feed everyone for lunch and my afternoons go a lot smoother when I already have supper planned and half together before the kids are whining that they are hungry. I also am better able to specifically plan with/for leftovers.

Lunch - hotdogs, fruit
Supper - burgers on the grill, sweet corn, coleslaw

  1. I too have been doing more meal planning and you are so does help!  I don't plan snacks either.  It's pretty much fruit & veggies.

    Have you ever thought about posting more about food, recipes, do's & don'ts in your house and explaining why & why not? 

  2. There are tons of things I would like to blog about...and I do love to talk about food. Maybe some day...
