Menu Planning Monday

I'm wondering if I'm the only one who strays from their menu plan sometimes? OK, each week?

More often than not, I will change the meals around to different days, but sometimes, like Saturday, I just wasn't feeling what I had planned. So we grilled burgers instead.

Here's what's up this week in our house. For more great menu ideas, check out Laura the Organizing Junkie's site.


Sunday – Couscous salad with chicken (cook couscous in stock, when done toss with a mixture of 1/4 cup any vinaigrette of your choice, 1/4 cup mango chutney, 1/4 olive oil and add chicken, raisins or dates, green onions, red pepper and any other veggies)
Monday – Thai stir fry served with brown rice (stir fry veggies, add 1 T. fish sauce, then pesto at end)
Tuesday -- Spaghetti with meatballs and salad
Wednesday -- Breaded turkey breast with salad and baked sweet potatoes
Thursday -- Leftovers
Friday -- Ravioli with pesto sauce and mozzarella
Saturday – Not sure yet!

Your meal plan looks wonderful! No, you aren't the only one that strays from their menu plan. My family and I usually only get to 4-5 meals that I plan and the rest, I carry over later in the next week or month. Take care.

Looks good. I switch the days around a lot. If I have a big dinner planned and the day gets a head of me, I just change it to another night. I've had a few carry overs too - sometimes I'll end up freezing the meat and having it weeks later!

Yep! We stray! I get busy and forget to take things out of the freezer, preggo cravings kick in, or we switch things around because of time constraints. But your menu looks YUMMY!! I love pesto... is that a craving coming on....

i just use a lemon pepper seasoning, that seems to make the tilapia very tasty! I usually fry fish...

Menu plans? Is this why my Beans are underweight? I need to try this...sounds like it makes life much easier!
