Menu Planning Monday


Well, the results are in after my first official week of pre-planned meals, and I must say, it was a HUGE success!  We only ate out one time after church, which was planned, and I definitely had less stress.  My entire week seemed more organized.  This week, I am going to add in lunches, since I homeschool and have 3 boys here at home every day.

Monday
Lunch- Tortilla pizza's and fruit
Dinner- Cheese Tortellini with Meat Sauce & Salad

Tuesday 
Lunch - Turkey Sandwiches and Chips and Yogurt
Dinner-  Baked Beef Stew

Wed.
Lunch-  Mac N Cheese w/ Green Beans (Have I mentioned that we don't do fancy lunches around here?)
Dinner-  Smoked Turkey (had one of those free ones from Thanksgiving in my freezer), steamed veggies and mashed potatoes

Thursday
Lunch-  PB&J Sandwiches, fruit, & chips
Dinner-  Leftovers

Friday
Lunch-  Hot dogs, corn and fruit
Dinner -WW Baked Turkey & Jack Cheese Chimichangas, & tomato & Avocado Salad

Sat. 
Lunch - probably turkey sandwiches hehehe (24lb. bird)
Dinner- go out?

Sunday- Turkey Bacon Quiche

 Have an "Intentional" week!

I just started Menu Plan Monday last week too, and what a change it made! The baked beef stew looks yummy. I hear ya on the big bird! We had lot of sandwiches (I love turkey sandwiches), and I also made really yummy turkey nachos and soup too last week. I never would have even come up with more options if it weren't for Menu Plan Monday. :)

Have a wonderful week!

I love the "stay intentional". What an impact those two words had on me when I read them. Bless you and have a great MPM!

Sounds good. We smoked a turkey at T-giving and I used the leftovers for soup and pot pie and they were delicious!
