I’ll share my plans for the new year in my next post, but first . . . I need to get my menu plan out of the way for the week.
Menu planning may not be something I look forward to, and it generally involves me tapping my fingers on the keys while trying to think of something we haven’t eaten (three times) in the last few weeks, but I’ve accepted that it’s a must.
Since feeding my family is the one thing that can’t be put off . . . getting a plan in place frees me up do the other things I need and want to do without coming to a screeching halt every day at five o’clock.
So here goes:
(I’m even including tonight’s meal, Sunday.)
Sunday: Grilled chicken and pasta and black-eyed peas. (Actually, I’ll probably only eat one single black-eyed pea . . . and only so my MIL won’t be horrified that I tempted fate by not eating any for good luck.)
Monday: Our favorite Chicken Fried Rice . . . but with brown rice.
Wednesday: Tortilla Soup
Thursday: Skillet Lasagna
Friday: Out to Eat
Saturday: Potato Soup
There. It’s done. Now on to the more-fun stuff!
I’ll be linking this up to Menu Plan Monday over at Orgjunkie.com.
