I've been doing weekly menu planning for a few months now, and I'm amazed at how much time and money I end up saving by just taking time to plan. I love to make one major grocery shopping trip each week, and to know what's on hand for the evening meal...even if I sometimes have to modify the plan if something comes up.
Here's what's cooking this week:
Saturday: grilled ribeye steaks, homemade steak fries, salad with balsamic vinaigrette and feta cheese, strawberry shortcake
(Doesn't that sound like a holiday meal? Hellooooo...it's the opening day of SEC football! Roll Tide, y'all. *Notice I made a dessert in our team's colors in honor of the first game of the season)
Sunday: slacker day--hot dogs & smoked sausage on the grill, chips, pickles, I might open a can of baked beans
Monday: Labor Day barbecue--ribs, corn on the cob, coleslaw, potato salad
Tuesday: baked chicken, macaroni & cheese, cucumber salad
Wednesday: breakfast for dinner--biscuits, gravy, thick cut peppered bacon, tomatoes, scrambled eggs
Thursday: fried cube steak, green beans, new potatoes
Friday: pizza night or dinner out
I'm getting in a rut! Help! I'd love some new ideas for dinner...I feel like we have the same things over & over again. I'll be checking out Organizing Junkie, and so should you!
