I didn’t make a menu plan last week.
Again, I was reminded me of how much of a difference menu-planning makes in our overall home-sanity. Having a menu plan, especially in these fun-but-unscheduled last days of summer means that we can survive. I generally have enough to throw together some meals, but if I don’t plan ahead, I invariably am missing one key ingredient for my last minute brainstorm.
This week is our last before school starts, so I’m keeping it simple.
Monday – Steaks and baked potatoes. (Hubby volunteered to grill, and I’m not going to argue with that.)
Tuesday – Spaghetti
Wednesday – BBQ chicken sandwiches
Thursday – Chicken Stir Fry – A family favorite!
Friday – Out to eat
Saturday – Homemade pizza
Sunday – Grilled hamburgers
Simple as can be. Out of everything on this list, the only things I need to buy are hamburger buns for the chicken sandwiches and burgers, lettuce. Not bad!
