Menu Plan Mondays

After reading over some really inspiring blogs (Cheap Healthy Good - seriously hilarious- and Simple Mom) I've decided to join Menu Plan Mondays over at I'm an Organizing Junkie (follow the link to see other meal plans). My plan is two-pronged: 1) eat what we already have (hence the pasta & mac'n'cheese) and 2) plan each meal with a grocery list so I buy less and throw out less at the end of the week (and hopefully save myself some time and braincells too!)

  • Lunch- Chicken Chili
  • Dinner- Pineapple-beef Stir Fry
  • Dessert- Mango Pudding


  • Lunch- Leftover Chicken Picadillo
  • Dinner- Hot Dogs, Beans, Mac and Cheese
  • Dessert- Rice Crispy Treats

  • Lunch- Leftovers
  • Dinner- Pasta & Meatsauce with Broccoli
  • Dessert- cupcakes
Friday: On the road!!
  • Pack up Chicken Salad, whole wheat bread, trail-mix, fruit & cupcakes.

All my meat this week is out of the freezer so I only need to buy fruit to snack on and broccoli for Thursdays' dinner. And on Friday we're leaving at the crack of dawn (okay 6:30 is not really the crack of dawn...at all) to see my brother in Nashville!! Wahoo! We'll see how we do eating on the road...


  1. sounds good to me! welcome to MPM.

  2. I love rice krispie treats. The next time I make them I want to either dip or drizzle them in chocolate.
