Menu Plan Monday

Okay, here is another new feature I’m considering for the blog. This idea came from the blog I’m an Organizing Junkie. It is an excellent blog that you should check out. The only problem with this feature is that the post would have to go out on Sunday or Monday, and I don’t always post on these days. However, I think this is a fun idea and a good way to start the week. And if my schedule doesn’t permit, I can always run the feature a day late or just do it every other week. We’ll just have to see. (Pardon me for rambling with my thoughts, but since I’m still deciding on whether to keep all the new features, I think my thoughts could actually help you to help me decide on what to do.) Anyway I just have one or two more ideas, and I then I’ll be making the final decision. (so let me know, what you think.)

The point of Menu Plan Monday is to encourage people to plan out their meals ahead of time. You can save time and money with just a little planning. For example, if you plan out your meals ahead of time, you can make one trip to the store, instead of several small trips, and if you know ahead of time what you’re going to cook you can plan all other events around the time it takes to cook your meal. Not to mention, it feels so good to actually know the answer to the infamous question, “What’s for dinner?” This is also a good opportunity to share ideas and recipes.

So here it is, my first menu plan:

Monday – Grilled Chicken w/ Steamed Vegetables
Tuesday – Pork chops & Rice w/ Green Beans & Rolls
Wednesday – Vegetable Soup & sandwiches
Thursday – Left overs
Friday – Chicken Fingers and fries
Saturday – Eat out
Sunday – Spaghetti w/garlic bread & salad
