menu plan monday

It felt so good to clean out the fridge and pantry last week.  The budget liked it too.  I'm also going to try to do the Coupon Game this week with my sister's help.  Anyone else do that?  I'd love some hints to make the prep go smoothly.  Since planning out my weekly meals has helped our family so much, I have decided to plan each day's chore list.  I think it will feel so good to have more direction each day and have a clean house by the end of the week.

Monday
Lunch-  Hot dogs and apples
Dinner-Eggplant Parmigiana w/ Chicken

Tuesday
Lunch- Mac N Cheese and fruit
Dinner-Moroccan Meat Loaf w/ Grean beans

Wednesday
Lunch- English Muffin Mini Pizzas
Dinner-Greek Salad Drum Sticks

Thursday
Lunch- Pb&J's chips and fruit
Dinner- Leftovers

Friday
Lunch-  Turkey Sandwichs and Grapes
Dinner-  Turkey Sloppy Joes and cheesy peas

I'm also going to bake some yummy, healthy Buttermilk Spice Muffins for breakfast this week.

Chore Plan

Monday- Bathrooms  and 2 loads of laundry
Tuesday- Dust entire house and 1 load of laundry
Wednesday- Vacuum house and 1 load of laundry
Thursday-  Mop floors
Friday- Craft and finish any laundry

As always, check out organizing junkie for tons of other menu plan Monday ideas.

Hi Glory! Thanks for saying hi on my blog - I always love finding blogs by people I actually know. I love blogland and have learned so much!

Planning out our meals definitely makes our home run more smoothly. I'm a happier mom when there's a plan!

How long have you been homeschooling? I've been toying with the idea, but honestly, I don't know how I would do. The thought of having them all with me all day every day is overwhelming. I try to envison running errands or doing grocery shopping and it doesn't sound good. But I think of all the huge benefits too. What has your experience been so far?
